REPOSTED FOR MORE HASHTAGS
I am a first generation female student enrolled at a competitive high school. I am class of 2021. So far, I have taken 5 AP Courses and received scores of 3-5 with mostly 4’s. I have also taken other rigorous advanced courses and have a 4.59/5.00 W-GPA and 3.91/4.00 UW-GPA. I don’t have a million EC’s but the ones I do have, I have leadership roles in and I have over 100 community service hours. Due to COVID, I was unable to get a face to face medical internship or hospital volunteer opportunity, but I have an interest in medicine.
I plan on applying to schools like Brown PLME, Boston University 7Year Med Scholarship, Wayne State Med-Direct, Duke Robertson Scholars, Howard University BS/MD, etc. (These are the most competitive programs) I am wondering what advice anyone can offer me about these schools and programs and other scholarships?
Also, is my schedule for next year competitive?
- English Literature and Composition AP
- Statistics AP
- JROTC (I am one of the three top cadets in my program)
- Environmental Science AP
- Comparative Government and Pol. AP
- Mentorship program at my school that helps to place students with professionals and allows them to conduct a research paper
- French Language and Culture AP (I have been taking French since middle school)
I am not the strongest in math, so I am avoiding calculus, but I took advanced Precalculus last year. I also am avoiding AP Biology because it is notoriously bad at my school and so is the entire Physics department. I took AP Chemistry last year and received an A. This is my last year of highschool so I do not want to mess up my GPA and I also want to just BREATHE. However, I am worried that maybe universities will not be impressed with my schedule because I have only taken Chemistry and Biology in high school and I have not taken Calculus or Physics. Please help!
