    Sophomore year is a little early to chance given a lot of what you have done is projected.

    Definitely take another ACT or an SAT since 33 will be low for Hopkins.

    All the top schools will want some sort of community service and apart from your work at Ochsner there isn’t much in your CV that demonstrates community involvement. Work on that aspect.

    In your future courses, there is no mention of AP Physics or any sort of Physics. Swap out APES for Physics as most top level schools prefer Physics, especially for a Biology major contemplating premed.

    As I rising Junior, you seem to have a lot going for you. I think the internships are going to help you a lot. As for your interest in John's Hopkins, I believe their SAT scores are on the higher side for selective universities, so make sure you try to get those scores as high as you can. I am not going to try to chance you because I believe you have a good shot at any selective school but its all about what admissions officers want. What I will say is that on the Common App there are only 10 spots for ec's. For me, that's a small amount where I can't really include all my summer programs and ec's. Idk if its difficult for other people, you may not have a problem.
