Private schools are going to be too expensive for me, and I can afford going to a UC. Which one is the best for premed? I am a junior.
UCLA, UC Davis, UC Irvine, and UC San Diego all have top-notch medical schools/hospitals and (naturally) very good pre-med programs. All 4 are amazing options, but the most prestigious one is UCLA. Hope this helps!

I am not sure about the UC premed question, but I just wanted to say that if you cannot afford private school and your parents/family income for FASFA/CSS is relatively low or even if you just have good grades/are competitive private schools can often be cheaper/same cost as public schools. I thought I was going to end up at a public school but I got grant aid and merit scholarships from a private school (one with a 70% acceptance rate so not like a top 20 or anything like that) and it is cheaper than the public school. Obviously, I was somewhat lucky, however, it is still possible! Best of luck though!! The UCs are AMAZING schools and premed is great :)
