    I liked both schools a lot, but felt like I would be happier at Nova. I'm pretty sure I don't want to specialize, but am worried that as a Nova grad I might have more trouble getting a good associate position than if I were a Michigan grad.

    What do you guys think? I know patients don't care where you go to school but I'm concerned about how Nova is viewed throughout the country since it's fairly new.

    I appreciate any thoughts on this :)

    Michigan has much more of an old tradition feel and is very well organized. Probably more well respected. Nova is much newer. Ann Arbor is a pretty neat town - very good population, little crime, very cold and lots of snow. Nova is in sunny FL, probably more fun extracurriculars to do around there. What does the total cost of each work out to be. I've visited both schools actually....

    I go to Michigan and I would go to the cheaper school. If you have any Michigan questions feel free to pm me.
