Chance a youngen

<p>Yes. I'm young. </p>

<p>And I want to become a biomedical engineer. </p>

<p>So here's the stats:</p>

<p>PSAT: 173 (wasn't prepared ): . freaked out. got low score)
SAT (this is the score I usually get on my practice tests from BB): 2000s</p>

<p>Freshman:
GPA: uw-3.83 w- 4.33
Rank: 12 out of 388</p>

<p>Sophomore:
GPA: uw-3.92 w- 4.5
Rank 11 out of 388</p>

<p>I tried to take the maximum of AP's, honors, etc.</p>

<p>Here are the plans for junior & senior year:</p>

<p>junior (I signed up already): AP English Lit, AP Calc AB, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, APUSH, and french 2</p>

<p>senior: AP English Lang, AP Calc BC, AP Physics, AP Gov, Academic Decathlon, French 3 & 4, advanced photography</p>

<p>Volunteer hours: Definitely LACKING. I never kept tracked, I just do it. LOL</p>

<p>EC's:
-Academic Decathlon
-Green Club Treasurer (Moving to President next year!)
-French Club
-Photography Club</p>

<p>Awards (lacking):
-HOBY Leadership Runner Up</p>

<p>Internship:
I will be interning for a university the summer 2013 for Biomed. </p>

<p>Okay, so I really don't want tips like "Stop worrying" yadda yadda. I want to know what awards, EC's, internships, etc should I really get into. I really want to become a biomed and it's been my passion for pretty much all of my life.</p>

<p>thanks.</p>

<p>I don't generally comment on chances, but my biggest advice would be to continue to build your passion for science and engineering. It sounds like you've got a solid set of science and math courses planned for the future. At this point, just look for things that you find exciting and pursue them. If you think working in a lab would be an interesting experience, go for it; if you'd rather spend your time taking community college classes, or working with a robotics team (or something else), then do that. IMO the biggest thing you need to show on your application is that you have a passion for pursing science and engineering, and that you understand (to a very very basic level) what BME is all about.</p>

<p>thanks. Reading your location from the box, I see you are a John Hopkins '09. Can I ask how is the campus and everything?</p>
