    I was a Pell Grant recipient. I didn't know that was a thing until I came here. When I was in college I just thought it was a state grant sponsored by our senator, Senator Pell.

    The current Pell grant thresholds mean that Pell grant recipients approximate college students from the lower half of the family income range.

    Most highly selective colleges skew toward students from high income families. However, the extent that they do so varies. For example, JHU has 12% of undergraduates on Pell grants, but 50% not receiving any financial aid grants at all (probably needs a top 2-5% income family to afford that).

    University of Washington. It's in a city, with a liberal, diverse culture. I've heard they have an excellent pre-med program, as well as a medical school. Hope this helps :)
