Considerations When Choosing a College

As a Black medical school applicant you should never choose to attend an undergraduate institution solely because you believe it will enhance your chances for getting into medical school.

Attend a college you will be proud to attend regardless of whether you go to medical school or not.

One factor to keep in mind is that if you attend a HBCU then odds are these schools will appear higher on the list since the rankings are based on total number of applicants without a breakdown of percentage of Black medical school applicants who actually matriculate to medical school. 

This is just a thought to keep in the back of your head.

Overall, if you excel academically it should not matter where you attend undergrad while on your journey to becoming a doctor.
