Wondering about what college might best prepare you for medical school?

Read comments from a colleague in Rhode Island:

 "Many of my Dr. clients will tell you that a good, small liberal arts college is the best bet because of the support and professor access. Larger universities often grade science courses on a curve, have TA's teaching, and there are a very limited number of A's and B's. The kids with C's and below are not getting into med school. Once Organic Chem hits, a lot of students get left by the wayside. An important stat to know is NOT just what percentage are accepted to med school, but what percentage of students who start as pre-med finish the program. If you have a large weed out factor along the way, it's not hard to post a high acceptance rate."
