Does graduating cum laude vs. magna cum laude from undergrad make a difference for later on in medical school? I am currently an undergrad student and have recently been accepted to NSUCOM... I am borderline gpa for magna cum laude and would need to write a thesis on my research, which would require a lot of extra hours in the lab, since my research experiment did not turn out as planned... I was wondering whether or not i should put in the effort to graduate magna cum laude... would this benefit me for applying for summer positions during med school or for my rotations? or does it really make no difference?? any advice would be appreciated!!
