I had many hours of community service at twoMar 28 2016Biology
I had many hours of community service at two departments within a hospital and nursing home. I had chemistry and Biology recommendations. SAT was about 1600. GPA 3.3.

If you get in, study, study, study. if you think you know everything for the exams, no you dont, study some more. Freshmen year look for research and Ta positions. Try to get in the important classes because depending on the time they give you, you might not get the class you need, therefore you would be a YEAR behind. Its a Year behind because some classes are available in Fall ONLY or Spring ONLY. (ex miss class for fall only can't take in until the following fall)
