    I think most bs/md programs' minimum requirements is 1400 and top 10% of your class. I think you have good EC's so make sure your academics is also up to par. Some also require SAT II's. But you might want to check individual program's requirements to make sure.

    Well In my essay I wrote about this, but the reason my GPA is not as good as it should be is because I lost my house in Hurricane Irene and I was pretty much homeless for a semester, I also had tuberculosis and missed a month of school my freshman year, so it was difficult to find myself in the top 10% of my class... especially because the lowest gpa in my schools top 10 % is about a 97-98 all this will be expressed through my application and interviews
