So with waitlists and acceptances and rejections in hand, I've been lucky and I'm pretty happy to have narrowed my choices down to the University of Chicago (Pritzker) and University of Michigan Medical Schools. Now I'm having a hard time deciding. Pritzker offered me a substantial scholarship that most people would say I'm stupid for even considering turning down, but the money isn't a super huge deal to me. (In the long run, it's not really THAT much, and I think where I spend the next 5+ years of my life shouldn't be dictated by finances alone). I'd have to pay full out-of-state tuiton @ Umich. I don't even know what to say about my preferences between the two schools - they're both awesome but really different. UMich is super student-focused and really cutting edge with streaming lecture videos and online notes and quizzes. It seems to me that Pritzker is the opposite - old school lecture style with lots of class hours. I liked UMich's approach better - I HATE lecture. Location wise Ann Arbor is a college town, Hyde Park is in a big metropolitan area - I'm not 100% sure what my preference is there. I heard Hyde Park isn't a great area so that's a point against Pritzker, I guess?? Even by rankings the schools (both medical and business) are close enough that it doesn't matter. I do want to get an MBA, and in that department it seems like U of C has the upper hand but UMich's Ross School of Business is nothing to sneeze at either. I honestly don't know what to do - I'm not even sure what criteria I should use to decide. Any and all advice is appreciated - especially from people who know stuff about the schools first-hand - and I hope everyone else got what they wanted/wanted what they got. If not, keep on truckin and best of luck!
