    Clearly your class rank is excellent, but you would need to significantly up your SAT score for a good program. Your math score needs to be very strong but for a program like Brown's or Northwestern's they want a very high overall score. For programs below those a 2100 would put you in the running, but math would have to be at least 740 with a strong mathII score as well.

    That sort of thing won't get you into an undergraduate (bachelor's level) program. And it's what you do IN college that can determine your eligibility for medical school.

    However, that sort community service and involvement will help get you into a good university that looks at those sorts of things. But in the end, it's your grades and MCAT score that determines whether you get into medical school.

    Look into your university's pre-med program (you can be pre-med with any major, but biology, chemistry or biochemistry is preferred).
