Well, every person and every rotation is different. I am sorry to hear about these bad experiences, they are quite troublesome to say the least. I feel however that I must present the other side as well....bchang74 said:Here's my two cents about the issue:
I have both a personal experience with Rush (I rotated for 4 weeks during my MSIV year) and a semi-personal experience with Rush (my brother in law is currently a MSIV there)...
Summing up my brother in law's Rush experience: unsympathetic/uncaring faculty especially during MSIII and MSIV years, arbitrary grading scales especially during MSIII and MSIV years, scutmonkey (especially to OB/GYN residents).
I agree, MCW is stronger in research than Rush in terms of research dollars and variety of opportunity.duffmckagan said:MCW has more research opportunities than Rush. In recent years, Rush has been dead last in NIH funding, while MCW ranks 44th. Rush does get a fair amount of private research funding, but so does MCW. (i have done research for over a year at Rush)
The city is expensive. If you want to live near Rush you can find a good 2 br apartment for around 1000 bucks, give or take a few hondo, depending on what you need/want.17shakespeare said:I'm headed to Rush also. If you guys find anything for housing, could you post it here? The places in the city I've seen are really expensive. Thanks guys.
