Peterock said:I would go to the easiest college possible if your heart is set on medical school. Of the schools you listed, CMU is definitely going to be the hardest day in and day out. How hard you worked or how much you have learned is ABSOLUTELY MEANINGLESS TO ADCOMS! It is a mindless process that rewards big numbers. Adcoms to not bother to weigh gpa's by school and major appropriately so heed my words and go to a school where you KNOW you can get straight A's.
I also know a lot of athletes who felt like their commitment to a sport nearly eliminated their shot at med school. The time crunch was brutal (nothing like high school so don't think you can compare it). If you'd like to stick w/ your sport, I'd also recommend you go to a less competitive school.
