I'd like to bump this as well, albeit a bit late for the OP; I'm wondering how these two schools compare academically as well, particularly in pre-med.
I assume Amherst is more known among the public, but I've heard that its science facilities are lackluster compared to that of its peers. As far as Pomona, I've heard pre-med is phenomenal, but are med acceptees going on to TOP med schools?
I read an "after Pomona" thing a while ago on the school's site, and many were going to med school, but very few to "prestigious" schools. Can anyone comment on the difference in how med schools view Amherst and Pomona?
