top tier school vs. second tier school for med school prep
Greetings college-bound kids and parents: I'm a new user, a dad with a high school senior, and just looking for any tips / advice anyone has in two areas.
1. Is it better to visit ten colleges first, then narrow the list down to a final five or six to apply to, or better to apply to all ten first, then only visit those that accept my daughter to help with the final selection?
2. For a daughter with top grades (including six AP) and ACT scores and interest in medicine, is it better for her to attend a top tier undergrad and perhaps a second tier medical school, or better to attend a lower cost, second tier undergrad and put the money saved toward a top tier med school?
Any help would be appreciated
