Sorry to jump on the x school vs y school thread bandwagon, but I am struggling with this decision a bit and would like some input from some helpful SDNers Both schools are offering me small scholarships that cover about a quarter of total costs. The scholarship to Northwestern is slightly bigger, but cost of living definitely makes up for it. Plus I'm not too terribly worried about cost differences. I feel like Pitt is a slightly better program and UPMC is an awesome hospital system. I just can't get over how much more I loved downtown Chicago than Pittsburgh. Should that be enough of a factor to sway me to Northwestern? Any input would be nice, thanks guys!
