You are not 100% out of the running for "bottom of the barrel" BS/MD, but far from a lock either. Think NEOMED tier programs. PSU BS/MD gets Harvard admits all the time. With your stats, I do not recommend sacrificing your UG experience by going to low tier schools.Please be honest--do you think I can make it into even one of the lower tier bs/md programs?
Here are my stats:
South Asian Female in TX
Rank: I think I went up a little more, but at the moment I'm 10% (out of a class of about 1400, it's bad)
SAT: 2110, will be taking my ACT very soon
UW GPA: 3.69 (I KNOW IT'S LOW...would colleges consider any senior year grades? I'm sure it will tip over 3.7 by then...)
W GPA: 4.15ish
- UT San Antonio's FAME program
- U South Alabama
- UAB EMSAP
- St. Bonaventure/GW
- SUNY (DO)
- PSU-Jefferson (this is a bit of a reach I'm sure; Jefferson is a great med school)
- UMKC (lol this is pretty much off the list)
As you can see, many of these schools are out of my league, but I'm just applying because why not. Anyway, there are a lot of schools here, so please if you could either narrow down or add to it somehow, I would really appreciate it.
- IVIES: Vandy and Dartmouth
- Boston College
- Boston University
- Case Western?
- U Chicago
- Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, UT, UT Dallas, U Houston
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. I'm really really insecure about my stats and I feel totally exposed having this out there. Be as honest as you possibly can, but also give me some suggestions.
Since I think you're going to get in multiple TX schools as safeties, I'm going to focus on slight reaches/high matches: JHU, WashU, Notre Dame, Cornell, UVA, Berkeley, USC (Cali). Keep in mind these will be low yield for you but getting into one or two is not out of the question.Thank you so so much that is exactly what I needed. Please go ahead if you have more suggestions.

Avoid BS/MD IMHO.
