Hi there. I have heard many different opinions on this, and I was wondering yours:

Is it better to go to an easier pre med school, get a killer GPA, and then apply to a great med school? Or is it better to go to a top pre med and top medical school? Thank you!

    It's best to go to a college that will give you a great GPA and an opportunity to stand out and be known by your professors so that you can get great LOR, plus do extremely well on the MCAT. Medical schools in the US all have to meet the same standards and so getting into the top med schools is not as critical; any med school will be fine.
