Has anyone ever gone with their gut feelings when deciding between schools and ended up feeling like they got burned? Oppositely, are there people who decided to go to a more prestigious school instead of a place they had a great feeling about, and later regretted it? I am totally torn right now between 2 schools, and the easy decision would be to go to the more well-known one, but I am almost possessed with this idiotic idea that I would be SO much happier at a different school (my friends think I have lost my mind). I don't know how I can make such an important decision based on less than a day's worth of impressions (I'll be going to 2nd looks at both places, but I get the feeling that they'll only confirm how I feel about both). Any thoughts out there, o wise people of the student doctor network?? Ultimately do you have to trust your instincts or is this the time to play it smart and hedge your bets for your future?
