I was hoping I could ask someone with a more informed perspective to chance me on some of the BS/MD programs I intend on applying to. I hope my post fits within the guidelines - I have never used College Confidential before.
SAT: 1550 (Superscored) - 1530 (Single)
GPA: 4.0 (Unweighted), 4.85 (Weighted)
I attend a boarding school in North Carolina named NCSSM. They don't do ranking but I think that its a pretty prestigious school (not to toot my own horn).
Race, Gender: White, male
Calculus BC - 5
AP Physics 1 - 5
World History - 4
American History - 4
AP Physics 2 - 4
(I plan on taking these APs next year):
Math 2 - 800
I didn't get the opportunity to take the Physics or Chemistry subject tests because of schools shutting down and what not.
Summer Research (~350 hrs) - I did some research at a local university on pharmacology over the summer. It will continue into this coming school year and I expect to finish with about (500 hrs)
11th Grade School-Sponsored Research (~70 hrs) - I worked at another local university doing some biophysics research. I presented a project and abstract at my school's research fair.
Volunteering at Hospital (~50 hrs) - I volunteered at a couple local hospitals during 9th and 10th grade for a total of around 50 hours
Volunteering at Therapy Program (~100 hrs) - All throughout high school I volunteered at a therapy program for children with special needs
School Scientific Journal Editor - I am a physics editor for my school's scientific journal that publishes the students' research results.
Swimming - I was on the NCSSM swim team for the 2019-2020 school year
(I've done some math competitions throughout my time in high school and got top 10 in state once. I also think that I will qualify for the National Merit Semifinalist as my score is above the expected cutoff by quite a bit for my state. I have lastly held a few leadership positions throughout the years. I was the president and founder of my previous school's chess club)
BS/MDs of Interest:
Guaranteed Admission Program - Virginia Commonwealth University
Guaranteed Admissions Program - University of Pittsburgh
Rochester Early Medical Scholars (REMS)
Connections Dual Admissions (BS/MD) Program - University of Cincinnati
NJMS Accelerated BS/MD Program
Do you guys think I have a shot at any of these? Maybe I should shoot for something lower? I'm quite intimidated by the requirements for BS/MDs but I know I want to be a doctor no matter what.
