    I wanna pick a couple more schools to apply to before I submit my application. I'm a VA resident so I have everything in VA covered. I am looking at more genourous med schools to apply to, or those that are a little easier to get into because my MCAT score isn't to high.

    Can anyone suggest schools which don't put very much weight on the MCAT?

    Thanks

    i always wondered... what's georgetown's reputation ? i 've heard tons about undergrad, but hardly hear anything about the med school itself. I know all med schools are great, but i can't seem to find rankings or anything on it :confused:

    Georgetown used to be in the top tier, so they definitely have a good reputation...although I heard lately they are having money problems :confused:

    I wouldn't say Pitt or Georgetown are part of the "easier" schools to get into...

    G-Town's money problems are "fixed" in that it shouldn't prevent anyone from going there. Basically they sold their hospital to a for-profit company but retain control over it, more or less. It is basically just a financial arrangement -- to help the hospital get more patients and be more efficient and get reimbursed better. I'd go there if they'd just take me off the damned waitlist.
