I would possibly consider Stony Brook University if you had not already looked at it yet. It’s about an hour outside of New York City in Stony Brook, New York (which is also known as one of the best places to live in New York). The acceptance rate is 48% with their SAT range around 1300-1490, but it is also test optional. Their GPA is around 3.64 putting you right around the GPA mark. They do have your pharmaceutical degree and it’s also recognized as one of the top 75 medical schools in the country as well as the 6th best liberal arts school in the country. Because you are involved in so many extracurriculars, those will definitely boost your application. Hope this helps. Good luck!
