10 Great Pre-Med Schools

What makes a great pre-med program?

Great pre-medical schools can be found around the country. What makes one great compared to another is often the quality of the education, their resources for premeds (think research and clinical opportunities) and also the ability for a student to perform well while maintaining a high GPA. Many schools publish their “pre-med acceptance rates”, however you should take this number with a grain of salt as it doesn’t often tell the whole story.Show 102550100 entriesSearch:

Should you look at published acceptance rates?

There are several reasons that you shouldn’t consider just the published acceptance rate in your decision to apply or enroll at a particular school. Many schools don’t tell the whole truth with these numbers. There maybe students who they do not support through the medical school admissions process because of their grades or MCAT and so the school won’t count these students in their numbers. Bottom line, you want to make sure to know the whole story (which is often difficult to get). That said, the list above has absolutely fabulous pre-med programs that can set you up for great success!
