After a couple months of intense research, I am very happy to have three solid picks for UK schools. In fact, I'm extremely excited about the faculty at Imperial. Depending on how I like London and the area when I visit, it may end up being my first choice of all medical schools (including US). If any forum member attends one of the following schools, please speak up with your experiences: Imperial Liverpool Bristol GKT It's hard for me to seriously consider Irish schools now that I've learned more about British ones. I think the emphasis on research in the above four schools makes them particularly appealing. I really wanted to keep a Scottish uni on the list, but they were the weakest links in the fields I'm experienced and interested in. So, if alls well that ends well, I will be applying next fall for 2007 matriculation (4 and 5 year programs) while taking a post-bacc program in the philadelphia area. =) Very exciting!
