I have to decide between Northwestern & the Dartmouth/Brown program before Tuesday (4 days)--please let me know what you think! I was on 4 waitlists (no acceptances, had started next year's app) until two days ago, and got a call from Dartmouth/Brown on Tuesday and from Northwestern today. I guess I'd just stopped believing in it happening, and now I have no idea what to do on that. Northwestern's got the advantage of being in one place (I don't much like all the shuffling around you do for clinical placements at Dartmouth, whether it's just the one big switch to Brown for the D/B program or the many little switches they do in the normal program) and also of all of the things that you'd see in a city and not elsewhere. Free clinics to work at; can learn medical Spanish like I'd wanted to. A really large class (175, including ~50 HPME kids) compared to Dartmouth's (75 total, 15 of whom are in the Dartmouth/Brown program). Dartmouth has the advantage of being a really friendly and laid back atmosphere (e.g. can bike to work), is 2.5 hours (and Brown is closer!) to Boston, where I have friends and where my boyfriend might try to transfer. As you can see, it does start to be the professional vs the personal. Please, please let me know if you have any feedback that will help me in making this decision.
