Hello everyone! I have been fortunate enough to get into a couple schools this cycle and have narrowed my choices down to these two.
I am born and raised in Michigan and currently go to OU for undergrad. I am pretty unsure about my long term career plans and would like to keep my options open...
I'm incredibly torn between both schools and was wondering if people can provide some insight into these institutions. I'm going to compile a list of pros and cons for both programs taking into consideration the information that I can find online and from you guys. Any input is very much...
I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to both Rush and Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and would love some help making my decision! I do not have a specific specialty in mind yet, but would love to go into academic medicine.

I've been lurking this site for a long time but didn't want to post until I was certain that I had been admitted somewhere. During the application process, I really just wanted to make sure I was admitted somewhere, without much mind to tier, prestige of a school, etc. And I have– I...

Here's my situation:
I've been accepted to two schools.
SLU gave my my financial aid package already.
Rush hasn't given me a financial aid package because apparently I didn't include something in the FAFSA that I needed to (parents w2 apparently). So I probably won't know what the package is for...
I was wondering if there was anyone out there that applied to these 1 year masters programs and still pursued dentistry. I recently took my dat (literally yesterday) and did pretty bad, don't ask, I did horrible :oops:
My initial step is to apply to these, programs, but I have a...
I was just accepted to Rush this morning and I realized I wanted to hear some personal experience from somebody within the program before I make any decisions.
