Princeton or UPenn for premed

<p>Which should i go to. I know princeton has grade deflation in its NON-science courses which could affect my GPA and Med schools apparently care alot about GPA, MCAT, extracuricular. Penn has hospitals and research. But who would pass up the oppurtunity to go to princeton. Any advice?</p>

<p>If you are paying the same for both schools, Princeton is the way to go.</p>

<p>Son had same decision 5 years ago Pton vs. Penn’s M&T program. Financial aid package was better at Penn, but not by much. Son went to pton and when there they updated his financial aid package and made it better than Penn’s and every year after that.</p>

<p>As far as experience, best 4 years of his life. Loved it. Work is hard, and there is grade deflation in every course. Big time. Life changing experiences for him. And made many friends for life. The call it the princeton connection for a reason.</p>

<p>Go and take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. He is the one of 3 friends that opted for med school. The rest and there are alot have gone on to do some very interesting things…And he was an econ major- calculus track. hellinic studies certificate…did his pre-med stuff there and at other schools during the summers. He tried to take as many classes as he could in so many subjects that you can only take at pton from some very interesting professors. </p>

<p>Enjoy! And congrats on both schools. And he did deliberate on his choices for a while, so take your time.</p>
