Hi. I'm 24, and live and work in Chicago. I graduated in May of 05 from a Chicago Uni. I was originally premed, but changed majors (long, long story) and ended up with a BA in a social science. I have decided that I want to pursue medicine and am wondering which program might be best. I need to take all of the premed courses. I believe Northwestern and Loyola each have formal programs, while it is possible to do the prereqs informally at UIC and UChicago. Are admissions chances to the respective med schools increased with attendance at any of these, either through linkage or otherwise? Are any of these generally more respected? Does anyone have experience with any of these programs? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
