    Northwestern ($) vs. Vanderbilt ($)

    Really torn because both schools are strong. Full tuition at both so only cost difference is slightly higher COL in Chicago, but I believe that is negligible. Decently sure I will pursue a competitive specialty, if i am fortunate enough. (plastics, derm, ortho, ENT, etc.) Both are equal distance...

    UCSF vs Vanderbilt(scholarship)

    Hello everyone! I am having trouble deciding between these two great medical schools.

    Is my dream medical school worth an extra $80,000+?

    I fell head over heels in love with Vanderbilt's program, both during the interview and the second look weekend, but they came through with a really weak financial aid package for me. Now I'm more seriously considering UVA, which I don't love quite as much and isn't as well-ranked, but it's...

    Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt vs UTSW

    Hi SDN! I'm so thankful for a successful application cycle. I've been WL'd to my favorite school, Duke, but if I don't get off of that waitlist, then I'll be making this decision, most likely. I want to go into academic medicine, but am open to any speciality right now. COA at NW and Vandy would...
