Female applying to Physician assistant program

tealearmtealearm Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
I am a senior in high school planning to apply to RIT to start in the fall 2015 semester to be a dual physician assistant major. I understand that the male to female ratio at RIT is very high and was wondering if this would improve my chances of being accepted because I am female. I also have a math sat score of 630, a reading score of 560 and an act composite score of 26. My high school average is a 3.7 (on a 4.0 scale). I am very involved. I am a cheerleader, in national honor society, secretary of science club, in band, have had a cashiering job for 1.5 years so far and have had a summer internship at my local hospital. What are my chances of being accepted?

    Here are the middle-50-percent stats for accepted students at the RIT College of Health Sciences and Technology (which includes the Physician Assistant major):
    SAT 1620-1910
    ACT 26-30

    My daughter is a freshman within that college, majoring in biomedical science. There are more women than men in her major, not sure about the whole college.

    Hope that helps.
