I really like Brown University and am even considering applying here ED, but this is a concern I've had from the day one of thinking about this school: Brown's open curriculum and lack of minus grades are a few of the school's more "experimental" approaches. Do grad schools, especially medical schools, take Brown grads as seriously as applicants from more "traditional" colleges like Stanford, Princeton, Penn, Cornell, etc.? Would there be any advantage to going to a university with a more old-fashioned approach to education, like a different Ivy or a state school as far as grad-school admissions committees are concerned? If anybody has any success stories of Brownies going to Harvard or Johns Hopkins, or horror stories of 4.0 Brownies getting rejected across the board, please share.
edit: just to be clear, I know about PLME, I'm more interested in how non-PLME premeds do
