    I chose prestige/ranking but my real choice was not listed

    I am big on curriculum (early clinical exposure, incorporation of PBL, traditional lecture, etc.).

    Mostly it's based on whether they accept me. ;)

    I voted for friendly atmosphere, but I think that the curriculum and what the school considers important (research or clinical training, etc.) is very important too.

    Just a suggestion, but this poll should have more choices and you should be able to vote for multiple things! I can't say that there is one factor that head and shoulders outweighs the rest... but there is a small cluster of factors that heads my list.

    Friendly atmosphere is a huge plus....we all have a little gunner in us, but it isn't nice to be surrounded by hardcore gunners for your whole med school experience.
