I'm a potential biology major and I have a hard time deciding between Wesleyan and Haverford. I can't say for sure I will apply to medical school but I do want to leave this option open. My other possible majors would be international development, economics or math.
I know that Haverford has a very strong biology program and its quite prestigious among medical schools. It also has the advantage of sharing resources with nearby Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore, and even has access to the research facilities at UPenn. The thing with Haverford is that it is super tiny (300+ freshmen) and doesn't have a lot of international students (Im one).
I know that Wesleyan has the most funding for research among liberal art schools, but does that mean undergrads get more opportunities to do research since there're also grad students at Wes. Does Wes have a strong biology program and is it reputable among medical schools?
