    If you had to rank the following programs, what order would you put them in and why?

    University of New Mexico
    Beth Israel, New York/ Albert Einstein
    Madigan Army Medical Center/Univ of Washington
    Oregon Health Sciences

    These are kind of funny posts. What my ranking has to do with yours is pretty irrelevant. But you wanted advice so.....new york last, cause i hate big cities, unm first because i like the residents, oregon second cause I like the city, and madigan third because as bad as driving an hour to work at a military hospital might be, at least its not new york. he he he.

    i would rank madigan first - the residents are nice, strong program. nice area, despite having to drive an hour. i have a military background so that doesn't bother me.

    oregon- i didn't get an interview but also a nice part of the country.

    new york last - accreditation problems and again in the middle of the city...i didnt like their facilities.

    true what desperado says - our ranking is almost irrelevant to your ranking. however, it does allow for some feedback and some reassurances.

    i like these type of posts!

    good luck

    FF-
    Here's my input. Okay remember that my rank is the be-all-end-all... although I know absolutely nothing about those programs, haven't even looked at their website or at them on FREDIA...

    But I would put Oregon first and Madigon Second... why? Because its on the West Coast, and we all know West Coas' rap is the best. California knows how to party, cal-i-forne-ya, knows how to part-y.

    Would rank Madigan first. I rotated there and everything about the program is outstanding except the commute.
