SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey all. Know this issue has been hashed over many times before by others in past years, but really wanted to put it out there again in light of MCWs recent curriculum change and other things. Ive been fortunate enough to be accepted by both and am honestly pretty torn between the two. MCWs new curriculum is systems based which I really like, and seems to have a strong clinical focus and patient exposure from day one, which is also attractive to me. Really like this cause I dont want to feel like what I learn in the classroom/lecture is compartmentalized from the clinical setting, etc. Madisons curriculum seems more traditional with no real significant clinical exposure till rotations 3rd year (could be wrong on this). The basic P/F grading system first year seems great but Im a little nervous about the curve-dictated A, B, C system beginning second year. Would really like to know what UWs curriculum is like for students day-in and day-out. Madison is significantly cheaper than MCW and to add to that, they have offered me a scholarship. Ultimately, just want to go to the school that will make me the better doctor, but finances are always a consideration as well. Would really appreciate some feedback on this especially from current students at both schools.
