Volunteer hours:
30 freshman-junior year through mandatory school program
At least 70-100 through altar serving
80-100 hours from this summer's volunteering at a hospital

This year, I'm taking AP Biology, AP European History and Honors Spanish and Honors Religion (Mandatory for Catholic School) and also advanced Pre-Calculus and advanced Senior English (I might transfer up to honors.)

I've heard the Allied Health Sciences major itself is quite selective itself, and I know that my GPA would not make the cut. Is it better for me to major in something like Physiology + Neurobiology (which isn't as competitive to the best of my knowledge) and take a Pre-med?

How do I, as a student sound? Am I decently competitive enough for good pre-med/health science programs at semi-competitive colleges? (40-50% acceptance rate approx)

Submit your ACT instead of your SAT, rock the first semester of senior year and you'll be alrite for UConn type schools.

I also attended a Catholic prep, glad to see a fellow man of faith out there. Catholic schools sometimes get a tough grading rep, so that won't hurt.

Catholic prep is great. I go to a Jesuit uni with a lot of them. Cool guys and well rounded - smart, athletic, etc.
