Question: Med school and undergrad schools
- Wed Jul 21, 2004 5:37 am
Dear doctors and others,
I'm a student interested in medical school. My friend an I got into a debate about undergraduate schools. I believe that applicants from very competitive schools (harvard, mit, berkeley...) have an advantage when applying to medical schools. He believes that medicals don't give preference to rigorous schools such as mit. His argument is: berkeley students need a 3.
87 and princeton students need a 3.
62 to get into uc-davis medical school whose average gpa is 3.
55, thus medical school does not give preference to very rigorous colleges. He also thinks that "WSJ top feeder list" is useless and the reason why harvard, princeton, yale, and stanford top the list is because of grade inflation.
We need a professional opinion, what's your take? please help. :?:

I believe your results on your MCAT, along with a consistent high grade point average in undergrad will give you the biggest advantage no matter where you attend undergrad.
