I've already tried searching, but I couldn't find a thread that answered my question. That AND the annoying waiting time for searches. lol 1. Does the name of the school matter when you apply to specialties? Is it similar to how predents apply to dental school? Most of the time, the name of the college doesn't matter that much as long as you have a solid gpa, DAT scores, shadowing, extracurricular, etc.... 2. Is it harder to reach into the top 5% at a more "competitive" school? Is it harder to reach into the top 5% where there is only 40 versus about 200+? 3. Is a GPR necessary to get into specialties? Thanks in advance!
