Going to a 'good' pre-med program comes with the huge risk of getting weeded out by the intense competition. So, go to the cheapest school and do well in cali. I'm also indian, in a BS/MD program.

Which pre-med program(s) are you talking about? No UC offers a specific "pre-med" major, but the typical pre-med's course of study can vary widely from biology to psychology to chemical engineering. As such, your chances of admissions depends on what you apply for, so I can't give you a definite answer. Your stats are fine though.

Thanks for the message.
I was planning to get to a biology or biochemistry major which gears to Medicine.
