Any thoughts on midwestern programs - OSU, Indiana, Case, Cinci, and Kresge? From what I saw, all of them seemed to have solid comprehensive training (all have some association with a VA and free-standing peds hospital), very friendly faculty and residents, and I believe all subspecialties are covered in the department. Location aside, I am trying to figure out if there were any nuances that I missed. As far as my goals, I would like to pursue a fellowship (most likely in retina, but not completely sure at this point) and would be interested in academic medicine afterwards.

I suspect Detroit going bankrupt has negatively impacted the quality of life there even if the program itself is not impacted.
