    NIH OxCam--Does GRE vs MCAT matter?

    The NIH OxCam page states that GRE OR MCAT is required--but is there any preference? I will not be able to take the MCAT in time for the application so I will have to take the GRE, and so I'm curious if this is looked down upon at all. I will be applying track 3 (i.e., doing the full PhD at...

    St. Elizabeth's Boston vs Mount Auburn

    IMG on J1. Interested in GI/Cards/HemOnc. Any thoughts on St. Elizabeth's Boston vs Mount Auburn/Harvard Cambridge? Mount Auburn is Harvard-affiliated and has placed its residents into good fellowships, but no fellowships in-house. St. E's has in-house Cards and HemOnc, but I hear stories...
