I want to stay in the Northeast (negotiable) and have applied to:
UMinnesota Twin Cities
If I were you I would add:
The Philly schools
I understand schools like Harvard, Yale and Johns Hopkins are a reach but I figured since my MCAT was in their range I would give it a shot.
I am looking for advice at other great schools that are within my target range. Also I appreciate comments on my chances at the schools on my list.
I would be willing to go to a less prestigious school if they offered me money. Is this a common occurrence? And if so, which schools participate in such deals.
Thank you for your time.
Rutgers and TCMC will be donations.Thank you all for the replies. I should have stated I am a Massachusetts resident and UMass is my target school.
I am adding Penn State, Cooper Medical School, Geisinger Commonwealth, SUNY Upstate, Rutgers RWJ.
What do you think about these?
In the bold, yes, as I have yet to see any evidence that these schools reward reinvention.Thank you. By donations you mean my application money is essentially a donation with no chance of acceptance?
Also, I see you recommend to add Duke and Columbia - two schools which I believed to be in the same class with Harvard and Yale. Can you touch on why they are any different?
I had UMN because I have a medium strength family connection to the state of MN, but I have no problem forgetting about it if it is unrealistic.
