What should I do in high school to get into a top tier college and top tier medical school?
Answered

I am currently in 9th grade and I have made up my mind to get into a top tier medical school and an excellent college. Currently, I have straight A's in all my classes, I participate in chess, dance, entrepreneurship, medical and writing clubs. I also take 2 AP classes in my freshmen year with the rest of my classes being advanced. So, what else should I do to improve my chances of getting to a top tier medical school and college?

Hi @sheetalkiran! Looks like you're off to a great (and early start)!

Apart from the extracurriculars that you're currently participating in, you can try to get hands-on experience in the medical field by shadowing a doctor, working as a scribe, etc.

I know your application cycle is still a few years away, but if you're really eager, you should search for colleges offering BS/MD programs. Usually, these programs admit you to a certain college and give you guaranteed admission to a medical school (when you're graduating high school). This eliminates the need to got through the med school application process later on.

BS/MD programs are really difficult to get into, but that doesn't make them not worth applying for.

Hope this helps!
