I'm considering Vanderbilt and Emory and I'm not sure which I'd rather apply to.

Does anybody know how many funded MD/PhD students per year they take? Also, I wonder if anybody knows if they pay interview expenses?

I could e-mail them directly, but I'm leaving the country Thursday and my access to e-mail may be limited. Also I'm not sure how good my asking them if they pay for interview expenses would look. Hopefully none of the adcoms are reading this :)

Neuro I did research at Vandy and it was awesome. They have a ton of money that is poured into the research programs. I later did research at Mayo, and my PI at Mayo was working closely with someone from Vandy and he made the same comment about $$$ at Vanderbilt (lots of it for research). I will try to see if I can dig up more specifics about them...
