Pre-med at Princeton v. Other Ivies + Stanford v. Med Scholars Programs
Taken that Princeton does not have a medical school, does it place a high percentage of students in medical school? For medical school, an undergrad needs to attain the highest GPA he/she possibly can. Does Princeton's grade-deflation policy make this harder? Overall, is it better to go into a Med Scholars program such as that of Rice/Baylor or Northwestern or is it better to go to an Ivy League School (or Stanford)? Would those who are intelligent enough to get into a Med Scholars program be intelligent enough to get into med school anyway?
There's so much debate about these factors, which causes a lot of pressure among applicants. Any thoughts? Comments from current Ivy League students and Med Scholars students are greatly appreciated.
