Provided you have the choice, by what criteria do you all choose your school? How did you research this? I'm applying this Spring and want to start researching schools this winter. I have the usual books, but really want something describing the INTANGIBLES of the medical schools -- i.e. culture, atmosphere, competitiveness, quality of professors, types of students, etc. I'd also love to find a summary all medical schools' residency match rates -- does that exist? Do any such books exist? I know there are a ton for undergraduate institutions, but I've yet to find one for medical schools. Thanks all, good luck to everyone currently applying.
