edited August 2013 in SUNY at Buffalo
Hello, I just wanted some advice for which college I should go to for my undergrad. I am going to be a senior in high school in September. Please advise the pros and cons between the two or if you know of a college in western new york that would be better. Also, please advise which major would be best for MCAT preparation and medical school.

My overall GPA is a 92%
My SAT scores are 760 math 630 reading

thanks in advance!

    I would definatly go for UB if I were you. Its nationally ranked, its more selective, and its more well known. It'll be easier to get a job too because UB has more resources. Also, since UB is also a part of the SUNY system, u can go to any other sunny if they offer a program that UB doesn't.

    That is what i originally thought but with the average class size being 200, I am not sure how well i will learn in that kind of environment. The average class size at canisius is about 35

    Canisius has advantages in that it has very small class sizes and you can form relationships with your professors. Also, Canisius is literally right next to a hospital, so I doubt that there are any shortages in internships etc for pre med students.
