    I am thinking Downstate because of the money.
    MSSM has a good rep
    AECOM great int'l opportunities
    BU excellent clinical skills, good area

    please help by sharing your opinion

    Thanks

    are you actually thinking of doing something international? cause if you werent then i think you could eliminate that off your list...

    mssm has a good reputation but i dont think it blows away any of the other schools out of water...which is prolly why id pick downstate....because of what you mentioned...

    the money.

    its a quality school and you can get a good medical education there. if you do well then you can be competitive for any residency you want to do...

    so yeah...best bang for your buck.

    there is no question about this. Downstate is the answer. Save your money, come out of a strong program and have little debt. Your residency will define you.

    Do you really want to live in Brooklyn for that long? Go with MSSM, it's got the best of everything of all the schools you've got to choose from. Good luck.
