I'm trying to decide which would be a better shot for me to apply early decision and was wondering if you guys could help me out. I'm a biochem major, currently 3.4 gpa had 2 years of research at NIH (wet lab) and 1-year research at USDA regarding data analytics. I don't have a pharmacist's recommendation, but I will be receiving strong letters of recommendation from both labs. I took the PCAT this July and I got composite 96 (90 bio, 99 chem, 67 reading, 92 math). As for leadership, I founded a chapter of a national organization in my sophomore year and had it grow throughout the years consistently. We're planning to have a conference of 500 people in our university this winter, and I'm the committee chair. If I apply to U of M, do you guys think I have a solid shot at getting in? If not, I'd rather apply early to UMB... If you have any pieces of advice or any other school suggestions please let me know. I don't know who to ask or what to do at this point. Thanks in advance!
