    So I've been accepted to both Georgetown and UMDNJ-NJMS and I'm having a little trouble deciding where to go.

    Georgetown
    Pro: better reputation
    Con: Another 4 years in DC (I'm finishing my undergrad at Georgetown now)

    NJMS
    Pro: Cheaper (although cost isnt really an issue), Close to NYC (i live in NJ but right across the bridge), slight preference for being here
    Con: not the same reputation as Georgetown

    As of now I'm leaning towards Georgetown. To be honest, and at the risk of sounding like an dingus, I don't REALLY want to go to either school. I really wanted to be in NYC for med school, but it looks like that isn't going to work out.

    Anyway, I just wanted some advice, thoughts, comments.

    Thanks.

      I dont think the GTown rep is all that great. Whatever it has in terms of rep over NJMS is certainly not worth the (hundred)thousands more you'll pay to go to GT and live in the city.
