I am currently deciding between Emory and Washu in St. Louis for pre-med.
Which university is it easier to get a higher GPA in?
Which one has ample medical opportunities with close proximity (EMT or pediatric shadowing or etc.)?
Supposedly, WashU is more "presitigious." So, would I have a better chance of med school there?
I consider myself a pretty good academic student with a 34 and 4 on AP Bio and 5 on AP Chem and 800 on M2 SAT, 780 on Chem SAT, and 770 on Bio SAT M.
But, I do not want cutthroat competition. I heard WashU pre-med courses are rigorous? I might choose Emory then because its courses are less rigorous. In which school would professors know me better and write better letters of recc?
I heard Emory has 55% med school acceptance rate and WashU has like 70%, so Im confused? Would I have a better chance with WashU? Quick responses would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much guys.
