Well Rachel you don't really study surgery in college. The path to becoming a surgeon looks like this. You attend college for 4 years, then 4 years of medical school and them you do what is called a surgery residency, where under the supervision of more experienced surgeons you become a surgeon, after you are already a doctor. So what you are really asking is what is a good pre-medical college. The answer is that you can get into medical school from most colleges as long as you have good grades and otherwise do well. You should pick a college where you are most comfortable. It is helpful if it has a strong science program because although you do not have to major in science to be admitted to medical school, you must take a number of science courses at the very least, and many individuals do choice to major in a science. ( Something related to biology, chemistry, physics, etc) This still should give you a very broad choice. Good luck!
