I turned 18 this September, and I'm a senior at Ball State University, graduating in May.
This past year, I maintained a 3.96 GPA over 43 hours of classes, along with a Honors Research Fellowship (Molecular Electronics) last year, a chemistry research program, and a Senior Honors Project. I presented my Fellowship Research at a research conference in Indianapolis.
I will graduate with an honors diploma wth Majors in Physics and Pre-Med with minors in French and Mathematics, and maybe Chemistry, if I can fit in Biochemistry independent study.
GRE General: 640 or 650 Verbal (Can't remember), 800 Quantitative. Took computerized so don't know Analytical yet, but I felt very good about it.
I'm an eagle scout, graduated from High School at age 15 and will graduate from College 3 years after that time, and I am an excellent pianist.
I just got my physics GRE score, 750, 68%. How good/bad is that?
The other thing is that I didn't really shape up until a year ago, and my cumulative GPA is 3.58 now and will be able to be brought up to 3.66 before I graduate.
How will this all look?
The Schools I've applied to are:
HST MEMP through Harvard SEAS
UPenn Biophysics and Molecular Biology
Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Biophysics and Computational Biology)
I turned in all applications last Monday- 11/26/07, which was 3-7 weeks early for all programs. I hear that it's better for you to be early.
I have some safe schools with later deadlines if I am rejected from all of the above.
