    Hi, I'm most likely going to be attending a state university (Massachusetts) for biology (pre-med). It's not a U of Mass. Do you think because it's not a large/well known college that it's going to keep me from being accepted into a medical school?

    I can't afford to go to a school which requires me to dorm.

    Anyone please help.

      I asked a similar question and you'll get a really good answer from the people who posted on the thread. I'm in the same boat as you!

        Once you leave the top 10 or 20 universties for undergrad - the ranking really does not matter. Completely different matter if you were comparing Yale to a state school..

        What really matters is how well you do overall, your science GPA, and your MCAT.
