*MED SCHOOL ADVICE WANTED*
Hi! I am a senior in high school and am curious as to what it would take for me to get into JHU Med. I know I am thinking way too far into the future, but I just want a little insight into the intensity and rigor that comes with applying to top med schools. These questions probably apply to any med school across the board, I am aware that acception into ANY med school is a great achievement.
Any who, I was thinking that it would be a good choice to major in Biochemistry. I have talked to some med students and they have told me that majoring in biochem will help immensely on the MCAT. In addition I have a great passion for History and have even considered majoring in History and just completing my pre-med reqs along the way. Although, med schools like variety in their applicants, I know that it will be difficult to do well on the MCAT without a good foundation in the sciences.
Do med-schools like students who have studies abroad? What GPA am i looking at with these top med schools in mind? What MCAT score? What are some of you guys' experiences with applying to top med schools such as JHU or Harvard? How are the interviews?
I know I shouldn't be too obsessed with getting into such prestigious schools but I always find that pushing myself above and beyond helps me do well!
Thanks for your help!!!
