I got into UPenn, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia and DukeOct 07 2015PreMed and Medical
I got into UPenn, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia and Duke and chose WashU. Why? The medical research here is better than the others, the teaching is better, I have real Professors (not TA's), kids are really happy here, food is great, dorms are the best in the country and the campus is gorgeous! Also, I got a great financial aid package. Work hard and take the most challenging classes in HS. Stick to one EC and do it at a grand level.
