Hi there! I went to UCSD and am now in an osteopathic medical school program. I feel like most UCs will really prepare you for any field you plan to pursue. UCSD had great bio majors and an enormous amount of research opportunities. I know UCLA, UCR, and UCDavis also do as well. I would suggest looking at which UCs that you get accepted into have the best research opportunities and best science classes. Those will prepare you well to get into medical school and ace the MCAT. Even if you go to a school that is not known for pumping out pre-med students, dont let that stop you from pursuing your dream. You can graduate with any major, take MCAT prep classes to ace it, and still go to a great medical school.

Side note: if you have not applied to any schools yet, you can check to see if the school has a bridged BS to MD program. I know UCSD used to have something called medscholars where the undergrad student just had to maintain a certain GPA and then they were automatically accepted into the medical school without taking the MCAT.

My alma mater, UC Santa Cruz, has an excellent pre-med program. This isn't my field, but a good friend from college went through the program and then med school and is a very successful and well respected Osteopath with a thriving practice in Marin County, CA. UCSC is beautiful, welcoming, diverse, and great in the sciences!
