Hey all- am just trying to figure out my schedule for next year, and wanted to get some advice on the NY programs. I am pretty sure that's where I want to end up, but don't know a lot about all of the different programs there. I know NYU and Columbia are "wicked competitive," but don't really have a good sense what that exactly means... i.e. what does it take to match at one of those programs (I was looking at the match lists from the last several years and can't really see any particular pattern). Also, would love to hear any input re: the strengths/weaknesses of these programs, and whether I should consider doing an away out there. Thanks for all the help!
