NYMC,Temple,Hahnemann,VCU/MCV - which to choose? Just got off three waitlists in less than a week. NYMC has clearly higher MCAT average and has beutiful, convenient, safe environment for 1st two years, and provides best prep for USMLE 1. But it is being continually bad-mouthed on this site. Temple is best known. Hahnemann has newest technology. VCU/MCV is part of big school, with good funding, and good facilities. All give only loans, no grants, all are private or out-of-state.
