I am a 23 year old male that just graduated from a state university in Iowa. I have a B.A. Biology, B.A. Psychology and a minor in Chemistry with roughly a 3.6-3.7 GPA. Prerequisite GPA primarily A's with a few scattered B's. I was involved in a lot of research in college and consequently did not find time to work in a clinical setting which makes me worry about my pending applications for accelerated second degree programs. I applied to a few programs but the University of Colorado Denver, Miami, and University of Pennsylvania are among my top choices. I am growing increasingly weary about my chances and because of this I have a few questions:
1. What do you think my chances are to the schools I mentioned?
2. Does anyone know any academically rigorous programs with relatively high acceptance rates that I could possibly apply to as a "safety school" in case I am rejected from my top choices? Please keep in mind that because of family situations I am limiting my search to accelerated programs and that the possibility of being involved in research is pretty important to me.
I thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my questions! Wish me luck... Also, sorry if there is an existing thread or I posted incorrectly as this is my first post on the site.
