Anyone unhappy at MGH, BWH, BIDMC?

I

    I am looking to do an intern year (prelim) at MGH, BWH or BIDMC.

    Do you know anyone who is unhappy at these programs and perhaps why? I can also go for transitional/so called 'cush' prelims. I am considering learning medicine well and so I am trying to get some advice. What may be the benefit, in your opinion, of doing an intern year at these programs? Thanks!!!

      all of the prelims I know from BWH seem very happy (as do the categorical residents), but it is by no means a cush prelim year. Also, most of the prelims seem to come from Harvard Med, so you might have a better shot elsewhere if you're not graduating from HMS.

        Thanks, that's the impression I got too. BWH seemed to have the happiest. BIDMC also too. MGH seems to be the big question mark...
