Help choosing a school for BME

<p>Which programs do you guys think are the best? (I am also considering med school after college.)</p>


<p>Thanks alot.</p>

<p>RPI/Maryland/BU. hands down.</p>

<p>Thanks for the input! I'm really wondering how much weight to put behind the U.S. news rankings. Also, when applying for med school, would a med school prefer a more selective school like Lehigh or Bucknell as opposed to say Case, or are there other more important factors(aside from academic performance)? And any more advice on which schools have the best biomed program would be great too. Thanks!</p>

<p>I don't think it's such a smart idea to go aim for med school from BME, even though med schools prefer BMEs. It's just that its very hard to maintain such a strong GPA while in engineering.</p>

<p>Aside from that, I agree with milton.</p>

<p>Stevens doesn't have a BME major,
Med school is all about the GPA, MCAT, and EC's, whether at no-name state or MIT,
The USNWR rankings are a good starting point, but don't put a lot of weight on them,<br>
Case, BU, and RPI have great BME programs, but it's mostly what u make of the program that makes it worthwhile,
And be careful in mixing Engineering and pre-med.....</p>

<p>It's relatively new, but Stevens does have a BME major:

<p>They also claim an 85% admit rate to medical school but I don't know if that percentage excludes students who were discouraged from applying in the first place.</p>

<p>Thanks again for the advice.</p>
