    I am tearing my hair out trying to decide where to go this year for med. school. u chicago and u mich are both fantastic schools. I just wanted to know from anyone who goes there, both the good and bad points. I'm from the east coast so it's far away from home for me and I'm having trouble deciding. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Do a search on my name or Michigan, and you'll find my opinions......I think of typed pages on the topic :) (sorry I'm tired)

    I think this place is great though. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Definitely no regrets.

    U of C is not in a great area to live in
    can you get umich in-state tuition? DEbt is an important issue.
    If you want to do research or enter a VERY competitive specialty UofC might be a better option.
    Other than that you're splitting hairs

    That's so not true!!! I'm interested in a VERY VERY competitive specialty (plastics) and UofM is much more well known in the field, which is going to mean a hell of a lot when I need letters to vouch for me. Although I didn't know this when I was making my decision (between Michigan and U of C as a matter of fact) I'm glad I feel lucky I chose Michigan for this very reason.
