Preventive medicine residency choices
I am in the process of applying to Preventive Medicine Programs for next year and have been accepted into several programs but I'm having a tough time choosing between three great residencies- University of North Carolina, UCSD, and Johns Hopkins (interviewed at and awaiting response). I've made a list of pro's and cons for each program:

University of California San Diego:
Pros- Located in Southern California. The American Journal of Prev. Med is Headquartered there. Have there own division of Prev. Med
Cons- Not well connected to CDC. Associated with San Diego State School of Public Health
University of North Carolina
Pros-great school of public health. Program Director is well known. Closer to policy centers in DC and the CDC.
Cons- small program (only 3 residents). Headquartered within the Division of Social Medicine
Johns Hopkins (if accepted)
Pros- great school of public health. Opportunity to do international work. Great reputation, program director is incoming ACPM president.
Cons- only pay residents 22,000 per year- would have to take out loans. If want to do research outside of the set practicum rotations I have to secure funding in order to do so.
I was hoping to get your input on these programs and if you had any personal experience with any.
