JHU blew me away, but I've always loved NYC. Thoughts?

mm... JHU is just too good to pass up, in my opinion. I mean, correct me if I am wrong, but I've never heard extremely good things about clinical training in NYC. It seems there are too many good schools fighting for the best training grounds. You will never have that problem with JHU.

How was Baltimore? Could you live there?

cost would be similar (i'd get a car if i moved to baltimore). i'm not interested in one field in particular, though i'm less researchy and more into clinical stuff. most of my friends are in NYC, and my boyfriend will be there for at least a year.

nyc > bmore. but the cost of living in nyc is much higher. i think the tuition at jhu is sub 40 as well, im guessing columbia is around 45?

other than that id say use the 2nd look weekend. 4 yrs in nyc would be awesome imo. i have a very hard time believing the clinical training at columbia is anything less then excellent. but i dont know!

This is tough.

I would probably go with Hopkins, unless Columbia ended up a bit cheaper. NY is very expensive and you'd probably get more for your money in Bmore.

Definitely check out second looks. Good luck.
