I have been accepted at a couple schools, and the one I want to go to is Howard U. I've heard it does not have the reputation of being a "good" school, but I really liked it and the tuition is cheap. (The other school I got into is also a "lower-tier" school). I am not an URM either and I don't know how I will fit in. Anyway, my question is, what do I need to do during med school (besides work my butt off to get honors and high board scores) to stand out for when I apply for a non-primary care residency? HU's pass rates is in the 80% range (LOW!). Any suggestions on what I should plan on doing in med school to ensure I give myself the best chance at getting a good residency would be appreciated!
