Pre-Med Success @ Wash U, Pomona or Amherst

I was wondering which school out of Wash U, Pomona or Amherst has the most succes getting their undergrads into med school. I've heard that while Wash U has a great med school their pre med classes are major grade deflators and make it extremely difficult for its students to be accepted. Any Opinions would be great.</p>

<p>Undergraduates from all three institutions enjoy near-perfect success in medical school admission, and you’re not going to have an easy time at any of the three.</p>

<p>per this website: [National</a> Trends in Grade Inflation, American Colleges and Universities](<a href=“]National”></p>

<p>WashU ave. gpa is 3.4, while both Amherst and Pomona are 3.5</p>

<p>That is close enough that I think the more important consideration is the degree to which the school provides the sorts of research participation and pre-med advising that are likely to end in a successful placement into a med school.</p>

<p>My hunch is they’re all about identical.</p>

<p>Other strong pre-med programs at Duke, Hopkins, Holy Cross, and Tufts.</p>
