If you are a pre-med currently attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison, or one living in Madison, you are likely thinking about going to the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. Here are some stats:
- Number of applicants — 5,045
- Number of matriculants — 175
- In-state and out-of-state matriculants — 75.4% / 25.6%
- Average GPA of students — 3.76

Definitely do-able, you just need to right assistance. Madison is the second largest city in Wisconsin and there’s plenty to do. For a cheap slice of pizza, Ian’s pizza has been around for a long time in the area. Or you could visit some of the many landmarks, from the historic government buildings or the observational tower right nearby where you can see the entire city from a bird’s eye view. Madison is a city you will enjoy.
