SAT Subject Test Scores for PLME?

<p>Does anyone know what kinds of scores are usually expected for admission to Brown's PLME? I know it's really selective so I want an idea of what kinds of scores have been accepted.</p>

<p>I just took the Physics Subject Test in June and didn't feel too hot about it, so I'm especially wondering about the scores needed for the required science test.</p>

<p>Daughter accepted with a 700 on chem Sat II (800 on Math Sat I and Sat II); after a certain level, I think its more about your essays and medical and research related ECs.</p>

<p>Son is a PLME. Had 750-800 on Bio, Chem, Math2 SATIIs and each section of the SAT.</p>

<p>Sister got (not exactly but I kind of remember) 700 Bio 800 Chem and Math</p>

<p>Just accepted into PLME class of 2013/2017. I had a 800 in math IIC and chemistry and a 780 in bio, but as eagerdad stated, your essays and medical related ecs are the most important aspects (they demonstrate your passion for medicine).</p>

<p>What type of ECs are recommended? I've worked in a lab over the summer and I'm hopefully going to continue that throughout the year.
What else can I do? What did you guys do?</p>

<p>Also, what SAT II subject tests should I even take? My Guidance counselor isn't helpful and neither is my brother. :[</p>

<p>And, lastly, am I required to take the ACT? Down here in NC, it's all about the SAT and I'm aiming for a 2300+</p>

<p>According to the PLME site, "PLME candidates are advised to include a science test as one of the two required SAT Subject Tests." ACT must include writing.</p>

<p>I was accepted to PLME '14/'18 and I'm glad to help.</p>

<p>ECs should obviously be medically related. Definitely shadow some doctors (its as easy as calling an office or a doctor you know and asking if you could shadow them, even for a day). This is really important in showing Brown that you know what medicine is actually like, they need to see that you have a mature and realistic sense of the career. Also try and take an EMT course. These are offered at many hospitals all over and it is not too difficult to become a certified EMT. This is the most realistic medical experience you can have and it will help you decide if a combined program and/or medical school is something you really want to pursue.Also focus on the "Liberal" aspect of the PLME. Do ECs that you are interested in. They want to see a well-rounded individual. Medicine can't be the only thing you care about. Prove you're a REAL person, not a machine.</p>

<p>ACT is not required but like jerzgrlmom said, if you submit it you must include the writing section.</p>

<p>As far as SAT II scores go, I'm not sure what the range PLME looks for, but I can share mine: </p>

<p>Chem 800
US History 740
Math II 710</p>

<p>If this was helpful I'm happy to address any other questions and concerns!</p>

<p>Thank you so much!
I'm definitely going to take the EMT course, and I got invited back to work in a lab for the entire year, so that will be good too!
You were extremely helpful, I believe I messaged you as well, do you mind responding to the questions in that? I'm sorry, I just have tons of questions. Thanks so much, good luck @ Brown.</p>
