Hi, I've read a few threads about comparing these two schools but still can't make up my mind. Which one would you guys choose? I go to a public city college in NYC and don't NEED to desperately be in the city - with that said: stony brook is 70 mins away from manhatan whereas einstein is 45 mins away - not much of a difference. Money isn't much of a factor. Not driving in Einstein eliminates some cost so thats fine. Einstein has great internal medicine residency placement but stony brook seems to have better surgical residencies. I am aspiring to do residency in surgery - either cardiothoracic or plastics... not sure which - and residency placement is quite important for me. I want to get a residency spot in manhattan after med school and REALLY can't decide between the two schools. Please help. Thank you for any response and opinion in advance.
