Anyone have any thoughts about which is a stronger academic program between Ohio State and Cincy? They seemed very similar to me. Any thoughts? ....and SocialistMD if you say it's about the right "fit" and how you feel about a program, you will make me mad :mad:

It's about the right "fit" and how you feel about a program.

I don't really know much about OSU, but I do know that both programs/ schools are considered equal as far as academic reputation. Both are quite strong academically. I know you don't want to hear it ( ;) ), but the "vibe" you get from the program really is important. Also think about where you'd rather live.

I interviwed at both OSU and Cinci and I liked both programs a lot, but I'd have to say that Cinci is stronger academically. That's the feel I got, at least.

I interviewed at both as well, but I would disagree. OSU seems to emphasize their academics more than Cincy. Also, not sure if NIH research dollars should be a factor, but OSU certainly garners more than it's counterpart. They are certainly both top 50 Academic centers in the country though. You wouldn't hurt yourself attending either (that's my professional opinion :) as a 4th year :confused:

Actually, Cinci is 15th in NIH funding, OSU is 27th. Both are outstanding programs though and I'm sure most people would be happy to be at either place.

Hmmm, I got my numbers from USNews rankings of top medical schools/research...are your numbers reflecting just the surgery department? Thanks for the clarification.
