I'm new to the forums and I had a few questions regarding Wake Forest and the pre-med program. I hope to be accepted to the university for the fall 2009 term and I will hopefully pursue a degree in biology with a minor in neuroscience. Anyone have any information on it; I was having a lot of trouble finding any information from the school's website, but I might not be searching in the right places. If anyone currently attends Wake Forest and is pre-med or has gone through it I would greatly appreciate any advice/insight.
How is the medical school acceptance rate for undergraduates? How does it compare to the national acceptance rate?
I've heard that Wake Forest practices grade deflation- do medical schools know this and will they take that into account when looking at the application?
How is the pre-med advising?
How difficult was it to fulfill the pre-med requirements at Wake? Is the workload particularly intense relative to other undergraduate universities?
