Of these two schools, which one would you or did you pick? What do you feel are the positives and negatives of each?

I picked neither howard, meharry, or morehouse. See, I believe that any school that prides itself in being "historically of ____ race" is racist. These schools discriminate against non-black applicants. I find that appalling! Thankfully, their MCAT, GPA, Board scores, and Sue Rates speak for themselves, so I hope this institutional racism pockmark upon medical education will soon be eradicated faster than a wart on my leg! I can say this, of course, as an african-american female former EMT, PA, and now medical student.

Hope it helps

I doubt it since Meharry has been around for over 125 years. Oh yeah and by the way, Meharry does accept lower MCAT's than most places. But if your a "real" medical student, not just one on studentdoctor.net, you'll know that MCAT scores mean nothing as an indicator of preformance on boards. As i've said before, and you can see for yourself, we are down the street from Vanderbilt students who have an average entering MCAT of 30, however 4th year Meharry students have higher placement rates into their 1st choice residency positions than Vandy students. And yes they are competitive residencies such as; neurosurgery, diagnostic radiology, urology, orthopedics, and general surgery. I guess I should also mention that they are places like Johns Hopkins, Cornell and other Ivy's. So I don't now about Howard, but as a Meharry Student, I can tell you from personal experience that Meharry prepares its students well. Just because you were unable to fill one of the 60 seats that Meharry receives 5000 applications every year for shouldn't make you this upset. But then again, as an african american female you must be very happy at the historically white medical school that you attend now. I can say this of course as a caucasion female.

Okay anyway to answer the OP's question, i asked the same question of an older cousin of mine when i was applying to med school and she said that the general consensus was that Meharry is putting out better physicians than Howard.

Wow! Le_Donald, I understand what you are saying, but you sound a bit angry about the whole thing. Most schools have a higher percentage of Caucasians. I do not think the intention of creating HBCU was to be racist, but to create opportunities that will help level the playing field if that makes sense.

I hope you know you are responding to a 5-year old thread.
