GaState does offer solid premedical advising, look over this page:
GaTech also offers solid premedical advising
I would still consider GaTech, but major in a science there, not engineering as you will get more attention than the crowded engineering major, and have more time to work in a hospital and learn more about clinical medicine. I think its easier to get into medical school from GaTech, as medical schools today want much more math training. In fact math is now the number 1 major medical schools are looking for.
I do not think there is a way to have a “good time” in college, if you want to get into medical school. You have to pass physics, chemistry and biology, with labs, and three semesters of calculus, with top grades. Organic chemistry in particular weeds out premeds, you need an A in that subject.
Look at the MCAT exams right now to understand how difficult that entrance exam is going to be! . You could look at O.D. programs which are much easier than MD programs,
though, and lead to the same residencies today.
Ask about Georgia State’s record for getting premeds into medical schools. I believe GaState success rate is
lower than GaTech. GaTech has fewer premeds but they get into medical school at a higher percentage, due to their stronger analytical and math skills. They get higher scores on the MCAT.
You can also look at going to PA schools, you will need to pass the GRE exam instead of the MCAT exam for that path, but its very very competitive to get into PA schools. Many student try three times and work in low level hospital jobs for more than two years before succeeding at getting into the top PA programs. Of course there are lower ranked
programs that may be easier for admission.
