Howdy from Texas yall.
I'm graduating in the fall with my *ahem* BA in Theatre. It was last year I really decided to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor and I will be applying to UPenn Pre-Health Program around one year after graduation. Here are my specs, let me know what you think.
1. 3.55 GPA & BA in Theatre; Minor in Psychology
2. 1160 SAT (This is low yes?)
3. Over one year's volunteering work at Texas Children's Hospital
4. 6 months research work for a TCH resident
What else do I need to focus on? Would you make any recommendations as far as volunteering or trying to boost my application? Should I take the GRE to defer my low SAT score? I think my GPA is good but not AS competitive as it should be. I know I want to go to UPenn no question. At present, my interest is pediatric oncology and I really like the program there.
Thanks for the help!
