Hey...I'm trying to decide between Brown's PLME and Case Western's equivalent (The PreProfessional Scholars Program in Medicine (7 or 8 years)). Could anyone give any fresh insights between these 2 schools? I just visited both of them, and am now torn between the two because I liked both. For the record, I'm 99% sure I want to be a doctor. Although Case has a reputation for not having the happiest students and Brown having very happy students, I'm pretty sure I can have fun at any place, and during my visit I met people I knew I'd get along with well. I KNOW Brown does have the better name, and better undergraduate resources and experiences, but Case's Med School is just a LOT better I think,with M.D./M.B.A.and M.D./J.D. programs, more NIH research funds allocated, a Primary Care Track, AND they gave me a nice scholarship. But, why have Case's med school ratings slipped over the past few years? Is it because Cleveland Clinic might open their own med school? Or are there other reasons? On the other hand, Brown's ranking has gone up, although I haven't read very much positives about its med school on these discussion boards. In addition, Brown's matches seemed better than Case's, and Brown has a great new president, Ruth Simmons, who seems to be taking the school in a good direction. Any thoughts on comparisons between the med schools? Case also has a core curriculum, Brown doesn't. But Case is in Cleveland, and Brown is in Providence...Help? Thanks, and I appreciate any comments.
