    You are deffenetely on the right track. GPA-wise, you will have 2 years to go so I would not worry about that. You need to have some research experience and you are set. Take Bio and Chem classes first so you will have some background for research. Good Luck!

    Research is not necessary to apply to medical school. It does seem you are on the right track, as long as you pick up the grades. You have at least two more years until you apply, so be sure to focus on your prereq science courses and then study like you've never studied before for the MCAT in about two Aprils. Don't forget to have other ECs besides the EMT job(s). Get involved at school with clubs of interest, etc. A lot of med schools really look for students who are leaders. What kind of internships are you interested in/looking for? Good luck.
