ok hi all I am a senior in high school from the Dallas area and wanting to pursue pre-med. The three colleges I am considering are SMU, UTD and UofH, which all have their pros and cons. I got into SMU as a presidents scholar so money is not an issue because they cover everything, but I am concerned that the premed program at SMU is not that great. UTD is giving me, as a national merit finalist a full ride and $4000 stipend per semester, but is really close to home and may not give me the full college experience. But has a more established premed program. I got into UofH into the 7 year medical program. But the program seems very intense and I don't have a full ride. It is tied in with 2 med schools McGovern and UTMB and you don't know which one you will go to. Also you still have to take the MCAT and score well and maintain a high GPA. They have a really high dropout rate.
Any advice?? Much appreciated.
