<p>Great letters of recommendation, great essays</p>

<p>You have a great chance- Your EC's are your strongest application part by far. 2350 is awesome and though the GPA is a bit low, it's certainly nothing to quarrel over. I'd give you a solid chance of getting into to at least Stony Brook (which I'm assuming is the favorite of the three as you chose to conduct research in their laboratory).
Chance me back for some BA/MD programs and colleges?

<p>With your stats and ECs, you have a pretty good chance. What would you say is your primary EC? And what is the LICEF competition?</p>

<p>Great chances. Heck, you may want to apply to Brown PLME, Northwestern HPME, and BU's BA/MD program as well, if the deadlines allow(:</p>

<p>Thanks. I'll take a look.</p>

<p>good chances for all of them. one suggestion: delete your post. you put way too much identifying information such as the name of the doctor you shadowed and exact towns of centers and camps. it really isn't safe, so I highly recommend you at least edit your post to remove those details...</p>
