    Everyone knows that unless you go to a top 25 school you will never get into medical school.

    I can sum up that link: it matters a little but if you do well at any 4yr university and well on the MCAT you will get into medical school

    Getting a 4.0 at UC Berkley looks better than getting a 4.0 at Northern East Bumphuck State University but a 4.0 is a 4.0.
