    Brown probably has the best IM program in the world. I'm not saying that because I'm biased too, because I'm not. Seriously though, they do have a nice hospital. Don't know too much about the med school itself, but it seems to have a decent rep as a mid-tier school. I'd say go for this post-bacc. If they offer you a spot, then great. Your state school would probably be preferable to save money, but one expensive admit is better then none.

    fyi...

    brown will finally be opening their school to outside undergrads. i'm pretty sure this new admissions procedure will begin next year (or at least very soon). so don't feel "forced" to do the brown post-bacc because it's not a requirment anymore.

    i know brown's ED is one of the busiest in the country and has a solid program. the med school curriculum is somewhat traditional (weird considering brown's full of "innovative" liberal wankies) but not very stressful. i have a friend that went through the PLME program and said that they do pretty well in the match. hope this helps!
