I need research opportunities for pre-med because I want to go to a research intensive medical school. If I go to PSU, then I can try to get some internships at OHSU which is in Portland so they're both near each other. But I heard U of O is just a better school overall. Which school has more research opportunities? Which school has a higher acceptance rate of their pre-med students into med school? I found some info on the PSU website that some of their pre-med students got into some good med schools such as harvard and john hopkins, but I cannot find any information on the U of O website.
I will be transferring as a junior next fall to one of these schools. I have attended Portland Community College and was in the Early College High School program, where I go to PCC instead of high school for a couple years, and then at the end I get my associates degree along with a high school diploma, and I will have a junior standing at any Oregon public University. I will be 17 years old at the time when I transfer next fall, and I'm turning 18 in November. So when I start, I will still be 17, if that matters. I live in Portland right now. My GPA is decent, but I still want to get it up higher. It's a 3.4, but I'm hoping to have it be a 3.5 by the end of spring term. Hopefully I will start my junior year with a 3.5 GPA.
Which school should I transfer to, if I had to choose between PSU and U of O? PSU is close to OHSU and in a big city, Portland (so that could mean more opportunities? But idk). and U of O is just a better school in general, and I heard they have good research opportunities too, but I'm just not sure. Any advice?
