I plan on applying to Howard U’s 6 year bs/md program later this year (graduating in 2022; almost there!). I’ve been able to speak to current students in the program and I’m sure that I want to take that path to medicine. I was pretty satisfied with my SAT score until I looked at some of the threads here and really started to question if it was sufficient for such a program. My score breakdown: 780 math, 690 english. 99th percentile overall and in math, 96th percentile reading.
As for my application, I will only have one summer of research, and one summer at some sort of medical camp. The former at Harvard and the latter at Stanford. I also attend an well-known boarding school where I have many leadership positions, none of which are related to medicine.
Honest thoughts on the SAT score?
