I must correct myself of using the word "BAD", but VCU is really obscure to everybody. I'm interested in its 8-year-medicine program and I saw the stats of the students accepted is not that high, like somewhat 1900-2100. Compared to other similar programs, like UMKC, VCU is a really easy program. Many of you said VCU has a good medicine department and I've checked that it is really accredited for medical school. But how come its acceptees' stats are so low? And if I come out to work, will the employers know what VCU is? I'm quite nervous about that. Because I'm new to US, I know nothing about reputation. And I don't want to spend extra money to be an out-of-state student.
PS. I live in VA. High School Junior.
Thank you very much.
