Hunter is an incredible school. I believe that Hunter really prepared me for graduate school. The science classes in Hunter are very rigorous and intense teaching students how to think in many different ways. Students definitely have to work hard but it does pay off. High recommend Hunter as an undergraduate program especially if youre going into the medical field.
