    I'm havin a dilemma here. I think these two schools are equal in most respects, except one name is significantly shorter than the other. Thoughts?

    This may be the extremely rare circumstance many applicants dream of: where you don't have to choose because you can attend both simultaneously!

    These polls are so annoying. Make this decision for yourself. Quit bragging. [I wonder if I should put a smiley so people know that I am joking, hmm.....surely SDN can figure it out.....]

    Play them against each other and see if you can't get a good deal on financial aid.

    I need help to choose between Harvard and Hopkins.

    On second thought, I was not accepted to either, so never mind.

    Thank you everyone for your serious input, I really appreciate it. As for those who told me to "stop bragging," I swear I'm not a gunner. I just needed to make sure I didn't need to retake the MCAT because I think I can get a 36 next time. Oh well, looks like it's gonna be NYMC for me! I just feel so bad for turning down an offer, ya know?

    Look at it like this: At least you'll make someone else happy. No second guessing-yourself!

    Seriously...its the same school...

    And yes, New York Medical College is much better, simply because it has a longer name

    choose the former, there's less words to mess up on w/poor spelling (should this be an issue)...and as your penmanship slowly evolves into being worse than a kindergardener's crayon-drawn masterpiece, it'll be easier to write:D:D

    What kind of medical school makes you say 7 syllables for their name? Talk about pretentious.

    I voted NYMC by the way.
