I know nursing has a lower acceptance rate, but does that make it harder to get into? I'm interested in psychiatry but I'm not set on it. I am also planning on applying early decision.

    I got in and I had a higher GPA but a lower SAT score and didn't take the ACT, I had a couple of B's on a full IB schedule. You sound like a great candidate, especially in-state! Good luck
