    Hey! I was wondering if medical schools cared about what college you went to for your undergrad. Does it affect their decision? Thanks! :)

    Yes. It wouldn't make any sense to compare two applicants equally if one took all prereqs at a community college level while the other took them at a university.

    Yes I'm sure they do but I think the grades you got at the school mean more than the school you went to. At least that's what I'm hoping! They definitely do look at what school you're coming from though.
