Chances for a Premed hopeful...I will chance you back!

<p>Hey guys, I'm a rising senior and was wondering If you could help evaluate my position for Pre Med.</p>

<p>Duke (I think number one choice as of right now…this may change)
Boston College
Notre Dame</p>

<p>Our school uses a 100 point scale.
It is a decent public school in upstate New York, but nothing exceptional...Typically, only a few go Ivy each year.</p>

<p>Currently, I am safely in the top 10 of my class (probably 5 or so out of 275)
I have around a 96/97 unweighted.</p>

<p>Our school only offers a handful of AP's, and I've taken every one that I have been able to. I have taken three so far (Physics, World, US), but will be taking four senior year (Macro, English, Biology, Calc). </p>

<p>I have done extremely well in all of my classes (at least a 90) except for AP Physics where I finished with a 75 (This is a notoriously hard class with an awful teacher...and this was not a terrible grade relative to my classmates...)</p>

<p>My SAT is decent...just about a 2100...and I'm hoping that this will at least get me considered by some of the good schools. I am also taking the ACT in the fall..and think I can do fairly well on that (again, hopefully good enough to maybe be considered).</p>

<p>I am a member of the Science Club, and Science Bowl. I am in the national honor society, as well as the math, science, and business honor societies ( I am also a year round varsity athlete (rowing).</p>

<p>However, I hope that I will really stand out to colleges due to some of my other activities...
I am a junior camp counselor for a couple of weeks every summer. I spend a lot of time volunteering at nursing homes around my area, and occasionally work at the local soup kitchen and public library. I am very active in my church community...volunteering is something that I really enjoy. </p>

<p>I know that I can get some great recommendations</p>

<p>I also have some unusual hobbies...
I am interested, and licensed in Ham Radio
Although I row, I am passionate about cycling. I love the sport and collect bicycle magazines. (I don't want to row in college, but I do hold a world distance record for my age group...)
Metal detecting.
I have invented these really cool bracelets and created the machinery used to make them...I guess my hope is that this will portray some sort of ingenuity...</p>

<p>In summary, I feel that I have decent grades...I am just hoping being well rounded will get me considered somewhere. </p>

<p>Please let me know how I stack up, and how I would do ED and RD!</p>

<p>I don't understand why you are going to Ivies for pre-med. Save the money for now, you can go to ivies later for med school. And the one school thats actually great in pre-med (in which you haven't listed) is John Hopkins. If I were to do pre-med, I would actually go for this school.</p>
