Sorry if this has been done before.

My first choice is Dartmouth, because in my opinion, it's in the most beautiful area in the country, it's Ivy, and I love the rural northeast life. I want to practice here, so it's also where I want to go to school.

Who's up?

I wanna go to the HOPE school in Poland. It's a private school, I love the freezing cold temperature, I love Polish people. and it's got the highest literacy rate in the world.

or I could go to Louisville :) public cheap school, i love the basketball and football, i love kentuckians (i'm serious) and it's got one of the lowest literacy rates.... lol


(hope y'all caught the sarcasm)

Dude, my Girl is in her 4th year of Medical School in Poland and she really has to bust her ass to get a good US residency. The whole LCME accreditation thing is a big deal (in the eyes of the match). You should seriously consider the + / - of going international. I agree that there are excellent international programs but you will definitely face bias in the match. I know someone is reading this and freaking out right now. But the simple fact is being an international student, even if you are a US citizen puts you at an initial disadvantage in graduate medical education. So I would say if you can go to a US school, do it, do it all night long !!!!
