Let's just say you were accepted to every med school in America, full-ride and everything. Which one would you pick? I think I would pick Harvard. Just so I could say, "Yeah, I go to this little school up in the northeast. Yeah, you might have heard of it, I'm not sure. It's called HAAAHHVAAHHHD!!!" What about you?

In the land of dreams, I'd like to hear my name being mentioned in the same breath as Harvard...oh, what a sound it would be!;)

However, I really would pick MSSM in NYC. That's my real dream school:love: :love:

If i could go anywhere I'd pick Geffen. Best medical school in Southern California.

Yup, exactly, Harvard. Just so you could drop the "H-bomb," as the OP already mentioned. :)

Yeah I've had a lot of studying to do lately. Hey, I guess that's what I get for going to Harvard med school, right?" It would be so immature, but yet so fun.

whenever I think of the best medical school/complex in the country, I think of Hopkins and not Harvard...just a weird quirk i guess. that said, I'd probably pick Yale or Umich! :D

It's interesting to me that people are always wishing they went to Harvard so that they could casually drop the H-bomb in conversation :)

The students I know who went to Harvard are pretty low-key about the fact that they studied there.

As a grad from another ivy league school, I can tell you that there are stupid and smart, rich and poor, etc. at all schools, including Harvard. Not everyone at these schools are amazing....when it comes down to it, they are people just like everyone else.

Hopkins has always been my dream, but I didn't get an interview there.

Columbia/Cornell will be next.

Yeah, and of course if I was actually at Harvard I would never do that because it would make me the biggest loser in the world. But since I'm not at Harvard, it's fun for me to think about.

I would say Weill Cornell is my top choice with Harvard being a close second.

As someone earlier mentioned, the med anthro program at Harvard really grabbed my attention, although I didn't want to return to Cambridge and felt Cornell would provide a similar caliber education with an attractive change of scenery.

quick clarification: the med school at harvard isn't next to the undergrad campus in cambridge, it's in the longwood part of boston.

still, doesn't negate the change of scenary argument too much (boston or nyc).

hopkins for sure.
soon to be overtaken by columbia. but perhaps that's the rejection talking?

(though i didn't apply or interview at any cali school and i'm sure the weather could make up for a lot. i've spent too much time living through boston winters to deal with harvard. not to mention some of the other negatives....which i'm sure the name might also compensate for, come to think of it!)
