I thought with medicine, it doesn't really matter which school you go to?

It doesn't. But some people like to engage in TSR circle-jerks about the fact they get offers from single-digit ranking medschools

PBL isn't too bad honestly, its a way to learn not a way to rank schools...

Oh and what is this ranking by the way? Bragging rights? Because thats all it comes down to really. And if you start bragging about what school you went to once you get into clinical years/fy years... well, good luck with that one!

Isn't the whole point of a ranking that it has to, you know, have some significance in terms of jobs, or interviews, or at least give you some bragging rights amongst your peers? None of which actually happen amongst medics.

Still, if you like, try casually and subtly bragging to your future non-London peers that you go to a London school and see how impressive it sounds. (Spoiler: it will make you look about as cool as McLovin).

You're not a **** but you sound a bit clueless - we are not investment bankers or STEM obsessives. Medical schools are above the ranking circlejerk.

There is a reason why people don't recommend listening to people who haven't actually been to medical school yet haha

They will learn or they will sink.

"I thought bath doesn't have a medical school because it is not in the Russell Group - thus it is one of the crappiest universities in human society's existence?"

Jokes. Bath has an amazing medical school! Would have applied there if I took the GAMSAT...
