    I am going to be a junior biology major this upcoming fall at penn state and i was starting to look into medical schools. I didn't know which schools to begin looking into, figuring it would be useless to waste time looking at schools I could never get into. I have a GPA of a little over 3.7 and have a decent amount of extracurriculars (I plan on getting more involved with organizations and research this school year). I would like to go to medical school somewhere in the northeast (preferably a city, like New York City or Boston). Any suggestions on which I should look into (please suggest more than just city schools though)?

    Posing this question is pretty useless without an MCAT score. Advice would vary greatly depending on that. It's one thing if you get a 39, another if you get a 33, another if you get a 29, and completely different if you get a 23.

    Geez way to be a douche. This is why everyone hates SDN. Sure he could've looked at the MSAR, but I don't see what's so hard about just taking 30 seconds to answer his question.
