Good programs that get a large number of applicants:


Johns Hopkins
University of North Carolina
University of Michigan
University of Illinois Chicago
Boston Medical Center
University of Kentucky
University of Washington
UCSF

This is by no means a complete list...just my personal experience.

Probably more like at least a 3.3+ with other goodies on your application. Grades really only get you so far. Once you reach a decent GPA is much more about other things you've done (ie: leadership, community service, etc).
