I am looking at what medical school to go to. Most schools go by the traditional 2 years of classes with 2 years of clerkship. Research seems like something that is done on the side. On the other hand Duke's 3rd year (I'm on their waitlist not accepted) consists of an entire year for research. Does this give the students an enormous advantage, their already great reputation notwithstanding? The school that I am most likely to go to currently is the U of Minnesota.
