Statistics for Undergrad University on Medical Admissions

If you are a high schooler looking to be pre-med in university, you may be wondering which universities have the best pre-med programs. Unfortunately, there is no one metric for how pre-med programs can be ranked. The strength of the program comes down to factors such as access to research, difficulty of classes, pre-med class preparation for MCAT, strength of pre-med advising office (even if the university even has one), clinical experience opportunities, student clubs, volunteering opportunities, and so much more.


For now, we will look at surrogate markers for the strength of pre-med programs at different universities. If you are applying to colleges soon, I highly recommend you check out the schools on these lists.
