Ro’s Answer

There are so many colleges to go to in the state of New York!
Just like the prior answers posted- it really does depend on what your interests are. I went to a SUNY and then post-grad at St. John's , and really enjoyed both because they had the majors I was interested in.
Right now you are interested in medicine, but not sure which specialization you want to pursue, so I recommend looking up some of the rankings for colleges with good medical programs (remember- you will have to eventually go to Med school after college - but some schools offer a joint college/med program). I do suggest that you go to a school that has a university hospital associated with it. (ex: SUNY StonyBrook, NYU, St. Johns, etc.) The reason for this is because you may be able to explore internship opportunities and have access to instructors that may actually practice medicine- this could be a good resource for future mentors and employment down the line.
NOTE: I am not in the medical profession, but both my schools had attached hospitals and the medical students benefited immensely from this.

Hi there!

It depends on what you are interested in. Some schools in NY, esp CUNY (city university of NY) are specialized.
John Jay - Criminal Justice
Hunter - really good for psych and social work
Brooklyn College - good education and communications programs

Private schools i know of :
St. John's - Physician Assistant, Chem/pharm, communications & business
The New School - Architecture, fashion, media
LIU - Nursing
