    Hi guys I was thinking about going to Einstein but I think SGU would be a greater option.

    Einstein:-

    Pros:-
    Well respected
    Tons of opportunity
    Immense research

    Cons:-
    Cold weather
    Expensive

    SGU:-

    Pros:-
    Warm weather and beach life
    Mangos.

    Cons:-
    Problems with residency but I want primary care so no big deal.

    I'm all honesty I want to enjoy the warm weather at SGU, live life like a vacation while in school and beaches. So many people go there for vacations why not put school in there too. Most importantly I like mangos which I think SGU has excellent quality of.

    Mangos are small here, but they make good smoothies.

    SGU for sure. As a mango enthusiast, I can honestly say Einstein's mangos are subpar. SGU's, on the other hand...

    SGU. If you go to Einstein I will kill you because obviously, you aren't one.

    SGU is by far the better option here, but I would really suggest considering either Ross because it's a better school or SJB because it's technically still a US medical school AND they've got beaches and mangos in the area. Also, SJB has had some accreditation problems, so they're more likely to give you a good scholarship! (Don't worry about the accreditation issue, though, since they got their accreditation reinstated by legal action, so they must be a great school! It was really just that the LCME is racist and greedy and wanted to close them down to make room for English-speaking medical schools in the continental U.S.)

    I was so upset when I first read this since I love Einstein and I volunteer at Monefiore quite frequently. But then I realized this was a joke! :thumbdown:meanie:

    I know this is a joke thread, but there are people who seriously ask this question. My ex-girlfriend had a friend who actually WANTED to go to a Caribbean med school over the US solely because of the weather, and if infuriated me that someone can be that misinformed.

    I was in a similar situation, deciding between Harvard and MCW. I ultimately chose MCW because who can resist Wisconsin cheese?!?!?!

    Pretty much the same issue as that presented in this thread: UCSD vs UMich -- better school or better chicks/weather/beaches/mangos.

    UCSD is no slouch, especially if you want to stay in CA.

    Haha, I agree. Hence the sarcastic statement. I'd pick UCSD WAAAAY over UMich, given the choice (and I'm not even from CA).

    Actually having worked with Cornell, Downstate, Einstein, SGU and Ross students, I would have to say SGU chicks are hotter and more "liberal" (and I don't mean a democrat).:)

    Good mangos and easy chicks, who can resist!

    Don't overlook hotness of med students when considering where to go. Remember these will be the people you will probably end up dating. Obviously Einstein and SGU are not in the same category academically. But for academically similar schools, go where hot girls are. Hot girls tend to go to warmer climates (ie LA, Florida). Remember a large amount of med school education is self directed and textbooks are the same everywhere.

    (SGU is better of crib schools, but not in the same category as US MD schools. )

    You do not "pick" UCSD.

    UCSD picks you.
