When choosing which schools to apply to, or if you have some acceptances, which one to attend, do you consider safety as a factor? Maybe I'm a minority, but I think about these kinds of things for my wife. Plus, she's kind of obsessing over each little detail about my acceptances and beat me to the punch by finding out which cities are the safest. Personally, in terms of safety, I think it's more for her because I always felt like I'd spend most of time on the medical school campus and wouldn't really get in that much trouble. Also, my state's capital (Little Rock, AR) seems to consistently be in the top 15 most dangerous cities (AR seems to be the fifth most dangerous state) so I almost have this opinion that we'll be safer wherever we move. Of course, it's kind of unsettling to see St. Louis as the top or runner-up most dangerous city in the U.S.
