Best colleges for premed
What are some good colleges for premed? Obviously the ivys, and Stanford, MIT, JHU etc., but what about some of the lesser known schools that are still as good for getting into Med school. Schools along the lines of UNC chapel hill, Case western...
Earn karma by helping others:
CMU, MSU, where I live a community college called Delta even has a good program for premed. My advice is take a test online for careers and then see if medicine/ medical pops up for you and then see what schools they suggest.
I know that Duke, Georgetown, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, John Hopkins, and Rice all have really good pre-med programs.
You want to look at schools that have grade inflation, smaller class sizes(= better recommendation letters), affiliations with med schools, and good scholarships. Taking these factors into consideration, your best bets would be some premed-heavy liberal arts colleges like Rhodes College or Amherst College, or Bowdin college all of which boast an impressive 70%+ overall med school acceptance rate. Although IVYs are obviously great, I would still stay away from MIT and JHU. They are notorious for grade deflation and weed out hundreds of premeds every year.
