    OUWB pros: close to home, newer facilities, less competitive, students seem happier and more social, almost a 100% matching, already found housing cons: in-state (I've always lived in Michigan so I feel like I won't grow as much), newer school so not as established, attendance is mandatory...

    Now that GT is P/F for its preclinical years, how would one go about comparing/deciding between GT and Wake Forest? GT's newly-retired grading system seemed to be its biggest downfall in old threads. Any input is welcome. Thanks!
