Other Importance of school

  1. Pre-Medical

    I'm soon to be an FMG in Sweden, with the intention of obtaining a residency in the US after graduation. My biggest concern at the moment is which medical school I should go to. I'm trying to pick between Karolinska Institute and Lund University. The reason I want to go to Lund is because I would enjoy my time as a student there (social aspects) (more so than Karolinska). And the reason I'm even considering Karolinska is because it's a well-known medical institute in the world (I think it's ranked 10th or something).

    Do you think I'd have a significant higher chance of obtaining a residency in the US just because I've graduated from Karolinska instead of Lund (given that my USMLE scores would be the same)?

    Appreciate any answers.
