  • Will it help or hurt in college admissions?

    I have centered my summer activities but not my HS classes around medicine. I also volunteer at the hospital and shadow doctors. But I do other clubs and play sports and am pretty well rounded in grades and have high Sats but consider my self a math/science type of person. I was wondering whether being to focused on medcine (want to be a doc for as long as I can remember) in high school will hurt my chances in college applications? Thanks in advance.
