They are all big reaches. Especially if you are considering MD and DDS programs.


You have fair chances at some of the programs listed above. Since you are still a junior try to improve your SAT score. Or just submit the ACT. There is a thread going on for 2020 BS/MD applicants on college confidential that you may want to follow (or have your parents do) or post your queries.

Do you want to become a doctor or dentist? DDS and MD are very different professions

What programs did you get into?

I decided to stick with strictly Medicine and I am happy with the results.
