Hi everyone! This is my first time posting on SDN but I'm really in a bind and need help deciding on the following SMPs! Tufts, EVMS, CWRU-physiology, Drexel IMS, Georgetown. I don't qualify for the guaranteed interview from CWRU due to a much lower GPA than required.I live in FL so they would all be considered out of state. I'm mostly looking for which program would give me the best shot at getting into medical school after the program but I'm conflicted between going with name recognition... SMP Help please!!
