Any school is good as long as it is what you're looking for. In my day, it was much different to get into medicine

Any colleges can help you get the pre-med requirements. The high GPA & MCAT are the most important factors for med school applications. You will need to study hard.

Sheila’s Answer

Hello Mallorie: Based on experience and observations with my son and his friends who are now medical doctors in their respective disciplines they applied to "all" the colleges they were interested in (some as few as two (2) colleges). For them, there was no right or wrong college. I know that they focused on courses that would help them get into medical school.

Best of Luck to You!

Ruth’s Answer

Agree with answers above re: find a college that fits. Although, it doesn't hurt to know that at least a few of its recent grads have gone to the medical school(s) you are interested in.
