    Hello, I am writing for advice regarding medical school. In the next day I have to make a decision between attending tufts or downstate and am finding it extremely difficult to make up my mind. Ill try to outline the factors that are weighing into my decision and hopefully you guys could give me some advice.
    Ideally I would like to stay in NY but would not mind living in Boston. I will be paying all the tuition myself so cost to some extent is a factor. More importantly though is being competitive going into residency. I am leaning towards neurosurgery but that might very well change. Regardless I would like to be in a position coming out of medical school to get into any residency I would desire. I am also considering doing my residency in California and that yet is another factor because I don't know if tufts has a huge advantage against downstate out west. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks
    Joe

    I would choose Tufts. Granted its more expensive, Boston is a great city. And more importantly, you stated that you may want to go into a competitive speciality. Names of schools mean alot when it comes to that. Going to Tufts may carry more weight. Plus it may give u a chance to rotate through some Harvard affiliated hopsitals. I hope that helps. Best of luck.
