Hey all, Just thought i'd poll the audience. i really really honestly love both schools for different reasons. Pritzker pros: the faculty,etc have been so nice to me, i love the students, my 2 best friends are gonna be in chicago and we planned on living together, full ride, love the health disparities focus, love the service focus, love the fact that its chicago and there are many other med school students in chicago too, wanna do research with one of the faculty on breast cancer and she's leading in the field, don't start til september, 1 month long winter break, getting a sweet condo there cons: cold as crap, long hours of class, 18 tests in first 10 weeks, not so great Step 1 scores Baylor Pros: the schedule, out by noon, love the students, know 4 people going there next year, 2nd best cancer hospital(MD andersen) and i want to be an oncologist and ultimately do residency here, warm weather, more clinical training, laxness in time of taking Step 1, great Step 1 scores, ranked higher, cheap but not compared to a full ride Cons: can be muggy weather, no real summer after MS1, starts in july , have no idea about housing there, so last minute, would feel like i was betraying my friends, less money I know this is stupid asking ppl on an online forum to decide my life but i wanna get some opinions. the idea of graduating debt free is seductive and the staff at pritzker loves me and is always so nice and answering my calls and writing me emails and i actually love them. baylor was a little standoffish and i kinda didn't feel like they knew me as well as the ppl do at pritzker.
