    MD What is "noise" versus being realistic (residency & career)?

    Hello, This is my first post, so feel free to redirect this thread or let me know if I need to change anything! When I was first accepted, I was incredibly overjoyed at the opportunity: I am the first in my family to attend a grad school of any kind, and this is a huge opportunity--not just...

    Mayo Clinic Medical School - Arizona

    Does anyone know how the new Mayo medical school in AZ will stand up against other MD programs across the country? I assume it will take a while for it to gain any sort of prestige, but just wondering if it would be worth applying to for admission in 2019. Thanks for any help!

    Big name school or local?

    Be straight: Specializing and Gunners

    Everyday I sit in class and I can't help and see the wheels spinning on the gunners who live to one-up their classmates each day. I decided to make an account and ask this because its been on my mind. I intend on specializing and I am somewhat certain I am in the top 20%. I overheard some of my...

    UNC v. Texas A&M

    I've narrowed it down to two schools, but could use some advice on what may or may not be better based on the experience of others. I loved both schools and they were my top choices after interviewing! That's why it is such a hard choice...I'll list what I see as pro's and con's to both schools...

    Compilation of Dental School Rankings

    It seems to be a fairly popular topic here on the Pre-Dental forums of SDN, and it was of interest to me when I started researching dental schools, so I decided to gather as many sites with rankings as I could find that looked objective and reasonably credible, and then consolidate the data...

    Miami Vs Mayo-Florida Neurology

    Hey everyone. I need some advice from people who know more than I. This thread is really more about program styles than these schools specifically. I interviewed at both and REALLY like both programs, people were great at both programs. I'm going to rank these as my top 2 but I can't put one in...

    Podiatric College Appeal Index

    UPDATE: I've added the 4-year graduation rate into the equations, updated cost figures, and made two separate overall indexes—a quality index which is independent of cost and an appeal index which is dependent of cost. I've been trying to find an objective comparison of the podiatric colleges...

    How Are SDN School Rankings Determined?

    Hey guys, I was browsing the SDN School Rankings page at: http://schools.studentdoctor.net/ My question is: how are the rankings (1-5) determined? 1 is the best, and 5 is the worst, but there are no indications of how this tier ranking is determined. It must be different from US News because...
