What are the chances of me getting into the following medical schools:

<li>Cornell U

<li>Duke U</li>
<li>Johns Hopkins U</li>
<li>Princeton U</li>
<li>Stanford U</li>
<li>U Pennsylvania</li>
<li>U Washington</li>
<li>Washington U St. L.</li>
<li>Yale U</li>

<p>I'm a sophomore in high school right now, and I know I'm really smart (not being cocky), and I decided that I want to be successful in life, and I want to major in pre med.</p>

<p>I did pretty bad freshman year, I don't have the GPA. But I know I did pretty bad, due to family issues, being lazy, depressed, ETC...</p>

<p>I think my GPA right now is like a 3.25, I'm not sure. It's the forth marking period and I did okay, I could have done much better if I wanted to.</p>

<p>Next year I'm taking:
AP statistics
Chem honors
Pre calc honors
English 3
Spanish 3</p>

<p>And I'm very determined. So I know I'm going to do my best.</p>

<p>Senior year I plan on taking:
AP physics
AP Calc
AP computer science
english 4
and an elective</p>

<p>and I'm planning on doing A LOT of volunteer work, like this summer I'm volunteering for the EMT and to volunteer at hospitals. I started a bit of volunteer work already, but I plan on so much more.</p>

<p>and I'm also going to do sports and ECs.</p>

<p>ALSO my uncle went to Cornell and my great grandfather.</p>

<p>Ok WAIT. You're a sophomore in HIGH SCHOOL and you're thinking about an event 6 years in the future?</p>

<p>I hate to be a downer, but if your GPA is a 3.25 now, you won't be able to get up to a 3.9 UW which those universities require.</p>

<p>Do some awesome lab research/EC's/journal publishing to get their attention.</p>

<p>But seriously, CHILL, you have 4 entire years of college to think about what you want to do!</p>

<p>3.25 GPA?
Quit. Just quit now.</p>

<p>No, don't quit. If you do REALLY well from now on, and you do well on tests, do ECs (good ones) you stand a chance. Colleges like to see improvement. You won't be a shoe in, but then again, nobody really is.</p>

<li>pre med is not a major.</li>
<li>why are you asking about medical schools if youre still in high school?</li>
<li>at least post your stats?</li>
<li>a 3.25 is definitely way too low to go to even a mid tier university like nyu or boston
have you considered publics?
as for advice, id definitely tell you to raise your gpa, and score at least 2000 on your sat to have a chance at colleges that would give you a chance to get into those medical schools. also important are extra curriculars that show you have a 'genuine interest' in medicine. good luck! raise those grades!
chance back?

<p>Just to make sure you understand completely: Medical school comes after undergrad. Moreover, Princeton doesn't even have a medical school.</p>

ALSO my uncle went to Cornell and my great grandfather.


<p>This won't help.</p>
