Now I know you are tired of getting asked this and telling people why you think they should choose this school over that one, but I would really appreciate some honest, well thought out advice regarding my admission offers.

So, waddaya think?

Hmm...interesting, the votes are swayed towards GW ....hmm....I'll have to do some more research, because personally, I was leaning towards GW myself.

Which is exactly why I posted the poll in the first place! No one ever tells you these things when you interview!

The backdrop of DC, the nation's capital, and GW Medical Center's prime location, nestled amongst the White House and World Health Organizations makes GW my top choice of the two.

True, true...but atleast you won't have to worry about papercuts during your clinical rotations.

This is a tough decision!

Brickhouse, are you going to both second look weekends? Probably a good idea!

No they don't - which is another reason why I'm inclined to choose GW.

This thread is hilarious! I love when SDN makes me laugh at work.

:clap:

Brickhouse, have you already been accepted to both schools? If so, maybe you should tell GW that GW has accepted you also but that you want to go to GW and that you'll go if GW can beat GW's financial aid package.

What if you really called and asked that? Do you think they might revoke your acceptance on grounds of insanity?:laugh:

GW's residency matches just can't compare though ...

GW last year matched 5 people to derm, 9 to optho, 7 to ortho while GW only matched 1 in each!

I guess though you should end up picking the one in the state you hope to practice in for residency.

:p

Um, I've heard GW's admissions office doesn't respond well to those types of inquiries. Better stick with GW, go with your gut feeling not the finances.

Gee, guys, your input has been just invaluable to me. I have a lot of thinking to do.

It's a tough decision, but I'm so grateful to live in a country where at least I get to make these kinds of choices, I mean, isn't that what it's all about?

GW...only because I like blue better than red...

Unfortunately, I believe their second look weekends overlap.

I clicked the second GW and suprisingly it is the clear majority. There must be some psychological basis for a statistically significant difference in choosing between to equal options.

Exmike haven't you been reading the thread? Clearly they're not equal, there is quite a debate about which is better. ;)

I think the choice is obvious. GW is a much better school, way cheaper, better location, AND had a better interview lunch. GW hands down! (I hear the girls are better looking there, too!)
