    Does anyone out there feel that your training would have been better at community program X, but for job security and fellowship opportunities, you ended up ranking university program Y higher?

    Anyone regret not ranking that community program higher, knowing full well that the only good thing about your #1 program was that it would look good on your CV?

    I went that route initially, ranking the programs with the most prestige first. My fiance and I talked it through and I realized what I was doing and finally ended up ranking what I felt fit me the best and where I thought I would get the best training and be happy. I've got a mix of about 50/50 with community and university in my top 10 for my Rank List.
