    University of Virginia VS University of Pittsburgh undergrad

    Hi all, this is my first post. I was fortunate enough to be accepted to both schools and wanted to hear what you guys thought of these schools for my undergrad. I am from Virginia, but Pitt would be cheaper, but the cost won't affect the decision. I applied as a bio major and I'm set on...

    Pitt vs Tufts

    Anyone have opinions on these two schools? I loved both schools but Tufts is very close to home. Is there any validity in going to Tufts for a good support network? I don't know anyone in Pittsburgh but recognize that it is a higher ranked school. Thanks!

    Einstein vs Pitt

    I'm curious to get opinions on these two schools, especially since Einstein doesn't have a second look weekend. I've listed a few pros and cons below, but ultimately I feel like I'm leaning towards Pitt because of reputation, but want to make sure I consider other factors: Einstein: pros: 1...

    UPitt (OOS) vs. TX-Houston (OOS)

    School 1: Pittsburgh OOS Pros: I really liked the special needs clinic, and the ranking is much higher than Houston. Also, I received a 60k scholarship to Pitt, making it much more affordable. I got to meet more people at Pittsburgh, and generally liked most everyone I met. Cons: I am...

    [Interview] Pitt vs. Tufts

    Hi guys. I put my deposit down for Tufts in December. I recently just interviewed at my state school which is my number 1. However, I just received an invite to Pitt. I realize that, although I love Tufts and the school is gorgeous, it's class size is a turn off for me. Pitt's class size is...

    UNC (OOS) vs. Pitt (IS)

    Hey everyone. I was blessed to be accepted into 5 dental schools. UNC, Columbia, Pitt, Temple and Rutgers. I initially made a decision to choose UNC based on 3 major factors that I was considering (Cost, Name and Weather and location). However, after more research on ADEA book and on this...

    I've been accepted to all three (haven't heard anything from financial aid yet). Would be thankful for any input anyone might have because right now I'm really not leaning one way or the other.

    Pitt v Emory

    Grateful to have been accepted to two of my top choices, both of which are great fits. I don't think I can go wrong with either. Nonetheless, a decision needs to be made. No financial aid packages yet, so waiting to make a final decision until then. Unfortunately, I cannot attend Pitt's second...

    Waitlisted at Pitt. What to do now?

    So I am really grateful I got multiple acceptances this year. However, after interviewing at pitt, I fell in love with the school. I know I want to be there for the next four years. They put my on waitlist yesterday. I am guess I either didn't interview well, or they didn't believe I would...

    Pitt vs BU

    Sooo I was just accepted off of Pitt's waitlist, and have already committed to BU and I can't decide which school to attend. I think I want a more academic career (a good school for research is a priority for me). I also don't think I want to specialize into a hyper-competitive specialty (I...

    Is this a good opportunity to take advantage of or not?

    I've always been really skeptical of programs by my schools (not this school in particular, just any school I am in, I distrust the programs irrationally) as a result, I've looked at this thing called the Pitt Summer Edge program and it seems like something that would really aid me in trying to...

    Pitt vs. Stony Brook (In-State)

    Hello! I'm assuming I won't get need-based grants from either school because I didn't get any for undergrad, and my family income is upper-middle class (150-200k combined). I have a sibling going to college, though, so I don't know how much that would affect this. I'm interested in a...
