Was wanting to know how I stand so far if I'm wanting to go to an upper tier medical school such as UNC, Vandy, or Baylor. Just started sophomore year and am a kinesiology major. I'm hoping that major won't be frowned upon when applying. 4.0 gpa since starting college, but will be a slightly lower due to High School DE classes. 50 shadowing hours. Did an internship at a clinical trials company over the summer doing data entry and reporting adverse events that occurred in study patients. Starting hospital volunteering and volunteering in an underprivileged elementary school clinic taking temps and minor things like that. 30 hours so far of non clinical volunteering at a kids program. Hoping in the next few weeks to start doing research with a professor on the effects diet can have on colon cancer. Appreciate any advice on what I can do to improve.
