    Hi. So far I have applied and been accepted to Georgetown and American's Post Bacc program. I have started but not quite completed the applications for JHU and Goucher. Two questions:

    1. Please rank these four programs. (Between the DC schools I am leaning toward Georgetown and between the Baltimore schools I am leaning toward Goucher).

    2. Do you think it is too late for me to apply to JHU and Goucher?

    Thank you for your help and suggestions!

    Of course, this is all subjective:

    1. Goucher > JHU > Georgetown > American.

    From what I've read here on SDN the last two might be switched around simply because of how horrible the Georgetown program appears to be organized. American might not have the name Georgetown does, but they do have a decent matriculation rate to medical school. I would look into this matter a bit further, if I were you.

    2. This all depends on how strong of an applicant you are. Objectively, however, you will have to on average be a stroner applicant applying this late in the game than if you were to have applied earlier on.
