Will The Fact That I Attend a Regional Campus Hurt Me?

I attend a regional campus of a large public university located in the east coast. I decided to attend the regional campus rather than the main campus due to financial reasons and because I feel more comfortable in a smaller school setting. I was set to transfer to the main campus in my junior year but eventually decided against it because I am able to complete my degree without transfering to the main campus. How will attending and completing my degree in a regional campus affect my chances of gaining admittance into medical school? Will it affect my chances to a large degree? Any input will be appreciated. Thank you.

I've generally heard that if the college you're graduating from is not well known, then it is crucial to make a good showing on the MCAT (the great equalizer).
