Best CUNY for Science?

I'm looking to transfer to one of the CUNY senior colleges, and am wondering which one has the best opportunities for the sciences (especially lab facilities). I will be majoring in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry, and perhaps a Biology minor (since I plan on taking related Bio courses like Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Cell Biology). I'm looking at Hunter, City College, and Queens College, but would appreciate any advice as to which one would be the best experience for a science major, especially their Chemistry departments.

    From what I've heard, between those 3 you can't go wrong. But I've also heard City is a bit better for sciences. Are you looking at going to grad school?

    Yeah, I'm looking at applying to physician scientist (MD/PhD) programs. I also noticed that Lehman has some courses that I'm interested in, but Lehman doesn't seem as "known" as City and Hunter in science.
