I would just offer additionally another really great resource for students interested in forensics. This website from the American Academy of Forensic Science: https://www.aafs.org/careers-forensic-science/find-school
LinkedIn is also great way to reach out to forensic pathologist for mentorship and advice. I have always found it to be helpful in that way. Either by searching for professionals or joining one of their message boards and posting questions there.
I studied Forensic Science at Arcadia University and what was important to me during my school search was location, cost, accreditation (what schools are recognized by laboratories) and the curriculum. I knew what I ultimately wanted to focus on after graduation, and I wanted to ensure that the program would prepare me for the real world. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
