top undergraduate biology programs near VA?

Which colleges have a strong biology program near virginia? they can be in PA also but that would be out of state for me. I want to go to UVA but i don't think I will get into there. I have a 3.4 GPA, I got a 1710 on my SAT and I'm retaking them in october ( I'm taking classes this summer so I'm expecting

maybe 200-300 points more nest time). I'm also in a couple of

clubs and I do community service. I was in band for 2 years in high school ( 6 years total including elementary/middle school). no school sports.

I want to do something in the medical field but I'm not sure exactly what I want to do. I was thinking about a dentist or a pharmacist or maybe a pediatrician.

I've looked at these college: John Hopkins, JMU, VCU , UVA, W&M, PennState, Mary Washington, Vtech, drexel, villanova

which ones out of these have a good biology program? are there any others?

thanks.

Update:

i'll be a senior this year
