I'm a student going into my sophmore year of college, and after doing some soul searching this summer, I've decided I really want to persue a career in medicine. However, I'm worried it might be too late. I don't attend an Ivy League school, but I do attend a top 20 liberal arts college, where I have about a 3.2 GPA. It's not great, but I can do much better if I set my mind to it... I messed around a lot freshman year. I took a couple of biology and psychology classes that made me decide I'd like to change my major from art history to biopsychology. I also get better grades in sciences, so changing my major would probably help my GPA. In terms of extracurriculars, I was on the varsity crew team (I was recruited, but our team is mediocre) all of freshman year, but this spring I hurt my back so badly that I won't be able to continue rowing. I also am active as a student council rep and am in a political group on campus. I'm willing to work my ass off, take on community service and extracurriculars, and whatever I need to do to get into med school. But I only want to do it if I have a real shot of getting into a good school in the end. Do I have a chance in hell? What do I need to do to make myself more appealing to the admissions board? Thanks for any opinions and advice you might be able to offer.
