I just applied to UCD, and Galway for the 6 year program. I was wondering if anyone is in the 6 year program, or is anyone planning to apply.
Is it difficult to get into the 6 year program. I am an older student, and high school grades were okay, but not great. I am currently in my first year of college and have a 4.0 in Bio, Chem, Calculus, Psyc, etc. Will they look at my college GPA, or will my high school transcripts come back to bite me? What can I add to the application or my essay to spark their interest in me and give me a chance?
I also was wondering what is the average number of schools people usually apply to? I have 4-5 schools I am looking into, and I am worried that it may not be enough.
