      I can't say much about the gen surg program, but I happen to know that Philly's cost of living really isn't THAT bad. Nowhere near NYC etc. You can buy or rent, and the pub trans is reasonable. Residents can live in nicer NJ suburbs and ride a train (24/7) that drops you off at the hospital in 10-18 minutes. Not bad IMO. I'm married and live in Philly too, so I wouldn't rule it out on that either. Just preference.

        thanks a lot for the info. I am married with no kids, but planning to have one when I am a resident. We have a place in Wayne and there is a high speed rail just down the hill. so I shld be good in terms of those aspects.

        How competitive is the program at Jefferson? It appears it is a really great program with a great reputation and case diversity that attracts top notch candidates.

        I am going to sch as an OOS in another state now and would love to return to Philly if possible. Jeff or Temple is my top choice now. I heard Penn is another world of its own so I am not holding my hope high with a mid 230s on the step haha:laugh:
