SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I was curious... Is there such a thing as aiming "too low" when applying to medical schools? I've heard people say things like *not* to apply to only the lowest 20 schools (in terms of stats) if you have decent/average numbers, because those schools might think you are using them as a "safety" or something. I know, it sounds really stupid. My gut feels like this is bogus speculation on the part of neurotic premeds, but I was wondering what SDN thought. Personally, I have ~3.8//3.7//34 but I'm mostly looking at schools that have 3.6-3.7//3.5-3.6//29-33. I mean... Is there anything wrong with that or should I throw in some higher-stat schools?
