GW and we'll go through it together.
Think 10 or 20 years down the line and the experiences you'll have gained being in DC (both clinical and social experiences). Yes East Lansing and the students are nice, supportive, etc., but what's not to say GW students aren't as well. It's what you make of it and want out of it. At least with GW your options for speciality can be better groomed early, as opposed to the primary care focus emphasized at CHM.

I'd take the DC area over East Lansing anytime. You might not have time to do a whole lot, but just the mental impact that knowing you live in a fish bowl can have is worth the second thought...Just the idea that I can get on a train/my car, and in three hours be in NY, NJ, Boston, is peace enough for me...Now, if MSU were in Detroit, that would be a totally different kettle of fish all together, but it isnt
Of course, again, that's just me.
