How can I work towards getting into Premed at Rutgers?

Hey everyone, I am a sophomore in HS at the moment and have been looking at colleges for a while. Since I am a NJ resident, I plan to go to Rutgers to save money. I think I want to be a pediatrician. However, I am not aware of the college processes and such. I have heard that if I want to be a pediatrician, i should do a premed major in college. And if I'm going to Rutgers, I should go to the school of environmental and biological sciences. I don't have many extracirriculars, not many really, and i regret it but i don't wish to complain because it is my liability. I have taken a few SATs and I'm taking SAT classes currently, and my first SAT was a 1640. Hopefully by the end it will be atleast an 1800.

About me: GPA in the 90's (school doesn't do 4.0 scale)
-extracirriculars: treasurer of my youth group, will move up 2 positions by senior year, will be a counselor at a camp this summer (getting paid, however last year I didn't get paid), definitly doing some volunteer work at a hospital this summer, thinking about doing winter track next year or spring track, and i don't know much else. i suck at sports. and i'm a mediocre student, maybe a little better.

But what can i do to get into Rutgers school of EaBS?
