I will be applying in June and was thinking about what schools to apply to. I really have no idea. I would like to stay in a big city, with lots of people and things to do. A good program in oncology and lots of research opportunities are also plus. Is there a list of top ranked schools or some kind of filter to select the med school you want. I live in California and therefore will apply to all the California schools. I will also apply to Harvard and John Hopkins just for the chance that maybe I'll get in. I have an avergage GPA and above average MCAT. I have 1.5 years of research and 1 year of hospital work. Where else do you suggest I apply?
