For all who are in med school or have already graduated, please shed some light on a rather fortunate dilemma. I was offered a full ride to NYU, which is my top choice at the moment. However, I got waitlisted at Yale and apparently have a decent chance to get accepted. I loved Yale and its research opportunities. Going to Yale would mean a $15,000-difference in loans per year. I live in NYC and would not mind living in New Haven for a while. I'm really interested in research and hope, as of now, to get a very competitive residency. For those of you who have gone through this process, what would you suggest? Both schools are excellent and am very thankful that I can even wonder about this. Please note that my family is very low income, and I have financially helped them out for quite a few years. Thanks in advance.
