Summer Programs For High School Students In Chicago

Carole Said:

Admission to the University of Chicago and to Medical School?

We Answered:

1. Right now it looks like you have mostly Bs. To get into Chicago, you will have to get mostly As. The good news is that you still have plenty of time to get your grades up.

2. Are you really serious in asking if going to one of the best universities in the world will hurt your chances of getting into a medical school? The answer is probably obvious to everyone but you -- and the answer is that it will HELP your chances.

3. As stated in #1 -- not if you only have a B average. You will need a 3.8+ unweighted GPA to get into Chicago. But you have time to improve.

4. Yes -- it is worth it -- especially if you want to go to a graduate school -- like Medical school.

5. While you can get into medical school with any degree, you do have to take the pre-med classes. It is always a good idea to do more than the bare minimum, so majoring in biology or chemistry would be a good idea.

Byron Said:

What are my chances at a top college or university?

We Answered:

You are a reasonable shot (something like 20-30% at Dartmouth - about 50-50 for the rest) at all the schools you mention. The best advice I can give you is since it is a bit of a crap shoot getting into highly selective schools you can increase your odds by applying to a few. If you did that, and applied to say 7-8 such schools, your odds of getting into at least one would go up to say something like 80-90%. Still not a dead set cert, so also apply to some good but less selective schools. For that check out:

The very best advice I can give you is to realize a good school is not a school that is highly selective - it is a school that fits your needs best - which may or may not be highly selective

Thanks
