Agree that Stanford isn't all that good for neurosurg except for non-clinical academia. Maybe this was just me, but I was under the impression that Penn > MGH.
As someone who matched in neurosurgery and interviewed at all three places, I would argue that Stanford not only is an academic powerhouse but that its clinical volume is on par with East Coast programs but doesn't compare to UCSF. However, there's no way Penn is better than MGH, either clinically or academically; Jefferson is much stronger than Penn clinically.
