It is a patently false and ridiculous statement by the economics professor. There is no stigma from being part of a branch campus. I would imagine that your transcripts wont even indicate which campus you went to.

Just do your best and see how it goes.

Most starting pre-meds get filtered out due to poor GPA / poor MCAT. Solve this and you're ahead of 80%+ of the crowd.

Transcripts will not indicate campus, BUT AMCAS asks you to specify it.

Don't give it a second thought! I went to a state-supported university branch campus for all 4 years and I've had a great response from schools so far. PM if you want to talk further.

As long as your degree is from an accredited 4 year college or university you can get in (provided you have the stats and ECs)

Why do you think an economics professor would have any idea what it takes to get into medical school? He's sending students off to finance and law, not medicine (for the most part).
