How did most people decide what schools to apply to? I know you should apply to a range, reach, middle, safety. I asked one first year, and she said that she chose based purely on reputation and location. What say ye? What correlation is there between med schools and residencies? (i have a feeling that it's not as simple as the higher ranked the med school is on usnews, the better residency you'll get into) Other factors to consider? Thanks!
