Safe/target schools for pre-med
I am learning that the most important thing for med school is a good mcat score and good college gpa. I have been assuming that I should go for top tier schools to increase my chances, but it hit me that my gap will get ruined if I only look at the name and ignore how well I will handle the rigorous academics of the schools. I am wondering what are some safe/ target schools for someone with a 31 ACT and a 3.9 unweighted gpa. I plan on doing a neuroscience major. Ideally, I would like to attend a school that is known for something or has some well known rankings. I was thinking of schools like Emory and Umich, but those have a a very hard workload that I may not be able to handle.
