<p>I am an African American high school junior in MD. I am currently enrolled in the full IB Diploma (aka 6 really hard classes in 11th and 12th grade). I screwed up freshman and sophmore year but took most honors and pre-IB classes. </p>

<p>Freshman year 2.28
Sophmore year 2.71
Started to realize the importance of school.
If I were to bust my behind and get a 3.71+ junior and senior year. With a 31 or 32 ACT score, 450 volunteer hours at a hospital, and 5 clubs 11th and 12th grade, great recs, and great essay. (Probably going to travel to Africa next summer and help the sick and poor in case that helps). Do i have a chance to getting into Penn. By the way I plan on going to Med School and doing PreMed at Penn. I know my stats are low but will the turn around count for anything.</p>
