So I was hoping some of the knowledgeable people on this forum could lend me some advice. I am a high school senior who has been accepted to Brown and Johns Hopkins and I am very interested in pursuing either an MD/PhD or a PhD in the future. I have had some lab experience the past 2 years, doing cancer research at a local university and a cancer center. My question is when selecting which university should the abundance of research be a key aspect if I plan on going into research? I know JHU is regarded as a medical powerhouse but I have also learned of the competitiveness and harsh grading whereas Brown is seen as somewhat more diverse, humanities-focused, and weaker in the Life Sciences. As of right now I am focusing on the undergraduate experience in deciding but everyone is continually insisting that I should go to Hopkins because the research opportunities there are abundant (plus they gave me a $10,000 research grant). Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated!!!
