Hey, I'm getting ready to start applying (after I slaughter myself for 2 more weeks of MCAT prep). I'm trying to come up with a list of schools and was wondering in particular about anyone who has gotten out of the "Florida Trap" (or knows of anyone doing so)? I go to the UF and got a 3.97 GPA over the past few years. For many reasons, I don't think I want to stay in Florida but have heard that a lot of the schools north of Florida (i.e. all of them) look at Florida as somewhat of a degree factory and don't take us too seriously. My MCAT practice tests are hovering around 38 and I would love to go to one of the great schools outside of Florida, but feel somewhat disadvantaged because of my undergrad school. Dream schools would be something like: Vandy, Duke, Emory, Mayo etc. Anyone have any perspective on this issue? Thanks!
