Are you happy? Is there a sense of community at your school - among students, among faculty, in the institution as a whole? I'm fortunate to have these choices (a maybe on Yale, but a good chance), and I am trying to figure out where I would be happiest. I know happiness is subjective. I know med school is full of students and and faculty with their own interests in research, patient care, whatever. But at the end of the day, do you feel like you're a part of a place you believe in and care about? That's what I'm looking for, as it's served me well in the past. The Harvard revisit seemed to highlight some fragmentation among people - students seemed a little cliquish and isolated. I met a lot of folks I really liked, but current students seemed overly happy to find other people they thought were cool. A lot of current students seemed too preoccupied to spend much time with us, also. I don't know whether this was a function of a limited sample (ie, my short experience) or indicative. I couldn't go to the Yale or Stanford revisits (waitlist on the first, accepted too late on the second), so I'm desperate for input. I don't mean to irk anyone with the tone or subject of my post, I'm just really stuck and could use insight from people who are at these places.
