I am wondering what people think about these two schools... where would you go and why? Thank for any opinions in advance.
I am going to make a simple point. Downstate costs 18,800. Tufts cost near 40,000. Do you receive twice the education at tufts, probally not.
I'm at Tufts as well, and found my class to be very diverse in personalities. There are many down to earth kids who make for great classmates and friends. As with many med schools it is like high school all over again with the cool kids, sporty kids, loners, gunners, and clowns. A random student's opinion I suspect would fall along the same lines as if you asked person X in your yearbook what they tought of XHS class of 2002. Cash and cirriculum being a more comparable stat it is no secret the cost is high but the resources are pretty good. Anywhere you go be ready to be back in high school only this time around hopefully you get a chance to be the person you wanted to be... unless you wanted to be jewish and are not, I'm not sure what the rules are about that.
