    Quite a coincidence that we have admission to the same set of colleges as OP with the exception of CWRU. Also planning to the premed track and whittled down the choices to Wisconsin-Madison and BU. OOS for both. If cost is not a criteria and willing to also foot the bill for med school, which of the two has better support for premed focused students (curriculum strength, support for med school apps, undergrad life etc.)?

    @silmaril could you please PM when you get a chance (don't have that option yet). I have a few specific questions regarding UW-Madison.

    Appreciate any responses

    @med2023: cross out BU and replace with another of your choices - it's known for grade deflation and is generally a killer for premeds.

    Haha my nephew plunked down his deposit for BU. Still waiting on UCSD for the miracle to get off the waitlist.
