First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Secondly, what are your news years resolutions? Mine are: Score a 1700 on the SAT, take the ACT early senior year. Finish up junior year with a strong GPA, and get as close to a 4.0 first semester of senior year, and apply to college. Get into the universities I want: Penn State-Upark Maryland-Upark Ohio State-Columbus Rutgers:NB University of Kentucky amongst others... Do more volunteer work and get a job. This way I have work experience, volunteer work, a good class rank, a high GPA, and a high SAT/ACT score. Possibly shadow some doctor's as well... My goal? Get into University of Kentucky pre med program. It is a lot of work but as long as I can get into these schools, I will be happy and will finally get to start the journey to becoming an M.D. --- Post your goals/dreams/aspirations for this new year of 2009!
