Okay, so I guess I'll make my first post on the pre-allo forum, as opposed to lurking =) Now, this may or may not have been answered, so here goes nothing: My friend is going to be a junior next year with a BCPM GPA of a 4.0 and an overall GPA of 4.0, majoring in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and a minor in Political Science: Int'l Relations. He will be taking the MCAT next year as well, and judging from his previous scores, I am assuming that he scores a 30, if not better. He goes to UMass, which def. doesn't have a huge prestige factor, so how will this affect his chances of going to a Top 10 Medical School? According to him, these kinds of med schools dont give interviews to graduates of huge state schools, so I don't know what to tell him... EC's - EMT B, Volunteering, the usuals..I suppose...those will be kept up..
