    Ok, I am a student at a rural, but large state university. I was just wondering if anybody had any thoughts on how this might affect me applying to some top schools. Plus, since its a big school with a small town, clinical experience is hard to come by. I have a little, but more research experience. How concerned should I be?

    Research experience is important for the top schools, but clinical experience is an absolute necessity for ANY medical school. I would suggest trying to find somewhere to work or volunteer in a medical setting, maybe a local physician's office, nursing home, hospice, community hospital- that hands-on clinical experience is very important! As for the quality of your school, the MCAT is supposed to be the great equalizer...if your GPA and recommendations are excellent and your MCAT scores high, you should have a good chance of getting interviews.
