Hi everyone! I have been fortunate enough to garner acceptances to both Brown and Mt. Sinai, and now face the difficult task of deciding between the two. I was hoping that the SDN community might be able to help me distinguish between these programs, because right now the greatest deciding factor seems to be all about location (Providence vs. NYC). More than anything I want to attend a school with an emphasis on collaboration and student wellness, which both Sinai and Brown seem to have in spades. I think I could be very happy at both schools, which is why I'm having a hard time picking one (definitely a good problem to have). I guess my question is this: what besides location really distinguishes the culture and opportunities available at each school? What are the big differences in day-to-day life? And because I know location is actually a really big factor in this decision, what do people value about their own medical school locations? Clinical opportunities? Entertainment? Solitude? I guess I am trying to weigh the fear of being overwhelmed in NYC against the fear of being bored in Providence. Interests include urban/minority health disparities, EM, global health, and healthy food access issues. Any advice is appreciated!
