Hello All, I was wondering if you could lend some advice on the importante of your med school's reputation in the match process. Some over on Pre-Allo content individual performance heavily outweighs school rep (to the point of being a non-factor). My decision process is this: Case (scholarship) vs. Harvard. If interested, you can read more about my specific situation here: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=384123 However, many 4th years have posted that school rep is very important. I ran across this on the IM forums (a specialty that I am interested in): "I ran into this dude on my interview trail from HMS, openly stated that he is below average in his class and got below average Step 1, and still got interviews at everywhere he applies (places like Stanford, UCSF, JHU, HMS hospitals, etc). That just goes about saying how much advantange an elite med school carries you in this process." Academics/PP: I have no idea, but I could see myself liking the academic world Thanks for reading!
