Drexel BS/MD vs Rutgers NB Honors College?
I'm having trouble deciding which school I should go to. I am 100% sure I want to go to med school. I like Rutgers more in terms of campus life, big school, closer to home, have family and friends there, etc. I would also be able to apply to the 7 year program with RWJMS if I choose Rutgers. Rutgers is also cheaper (~20k/yr) as oppose to Drexel (~35k/yr) and I would be going to the Honors College. However, the one thing about Drexel is that my chances of getting into medical school would probably be higher due to the BS/MD program. The only problem that I have with it is that the MCAT requirement (513) is kind of high to the point where if I got the same score at Rutgers, I could probably apply and get into another med school. Rutgers has always been a top choice and good fit. However, I am unsure about Drexel in other respects (campus life, academics, etc.) besides the BS/MD program. Anyone have any advice on which I should choose? Can anyone tell me about if the Drexel BS/MD program is worth it?3 replies
