the only one i'm really familiar w/ is NYMC, but i can say a few things about it.
1. you can rotate in NYC if you want, which is very cool.
2. west. med. center is a really good hospital in an awesome area to live, so if you get a residency there, it's pretty good.
3. they have pretty nice cheap housing.
also, isn't creighton in omaha or something? Forget that.
well, i liked the required research project part of penn state's curriculum (i figured it would be something that would be positive when going for residency...also, i forget what percentage are actually published, but it was over 50% i think), and also everyone was really nice there....i liked the area, even though i'm from L.A......it was nice to be somewhere peaceful and not trafficky for a change but what is your first choice, without anyone else's input?
I like the NY Med for the Proximity to NY city and for their high board scores and match list. Since my boyfriend is moving with me I won't be able to live on campus which will make cost of living high.
Penn State would be nice for low cost of living and how nice and friendly all the people are. There is also a ton of early patient exposure and the research project would be a great experience.
Creighton is a good school but I don't see myself surviving Nebraska winters.
Right now Penn State and NY Med are tied and I'm looking for reasons to pick one over the other.
Originally posted by Jet915 Creighton all the way...........I might be a little biased though. I did interview at NYMC and totally liked Creighton alot more. So unless you have to be near a big city, I'd choose Creighton.
Doesnt matter to me if the OP comes or not. OP, if you have questions, send them my way. BTW, I dont think the winters in Omaha are any worse then in Pennysylvania or New York. But if Omaha is too small of a town for you, then New York is probably the best bet although Valhalla is really small.
