WTF WTF. Does anyone have the real deal on some of these schools ie Northwestern, Yale, etc. First off, how is a medical school non-competive. These students spend their undergrad having to withhold such high standards and competing with all the other pre-meds and suddenly everyone just gets along like Bert and Ernie? If anything the competition is more stiff because of residency matching. And I don't think P/F makes it so much easier. Isn't there some secret ranking that you don't find out about till it comes time to apply to residency programs? Also, everyone keeps saying a school just felt right to them. Can anyone explain how they got this feeling. I have been looking at school websites (which are bs anyway) to try and get a "feel" for a school. Truth is, your not gonna get a feel for a school unless your on campus for at least a few weeks. Now if this feel acounts for price, location, and curriculum then its somewhat founded. But if it comes from walking around campus for a couple hours and seeing a few students I say this 'feel' lacks any scientific basis at best. Its an analgous situation to meeting a hot girl for the first time. Sure her looks(aka reputation, US News ranking) entice you, and who knows the first few hours could be good clean fun. But after a week you find out the girl is whack, but you have already invested all the time and money. IF anyone can clear up these two issues i would be much obliged.
