Anyone else dealing with parents and other family members (or significant others/friends) who are constantly expressing disapproval about where you decided to go to medical school? I couldn't be happier with where I'm headed in the fall, but getting complaints from my mom and getting called an idiot by my brother every time I say the name of where I'm headed is dampening my spirits somewhat. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to change their minds, but I would like to know if any other people are facing the same BS. I would hope though that most families are actually happy for their kids and supportive of their choices etc. The reasons for the disagreement, just as an aside, are the alleged safety of the area and its standing in the US News rankings. While I didn't get into many schools in amazing areas, the one that I'm deciding to go to definitely will require me to be more careful than I am used to (but part of that is just city life in general)... something that I've repeatedly acknowledged and planned for.
