    Hey, let's face it. In the end, any medical school experience will (hopefully) end in an MD. Has anyone considered any frivolous reason for choosing a particular medical school (i.e. near the slopes or beach)? :D

    I'm looking at two schools that are otherwise about the same. Just wondering if this was the deciding factor for anyone else?

    As a FL resident, I'd much rather be in the warm sun than the cold northeast, where I applied to (mostly). However, I'll go to the best school I get into, unless I get into UF and then I'll really have to think about it cuz it's closer to home AND cheaper.

    Let's go surfing :p

    Being in a big city was an important consideration for me and I have been able to take advantage of some of the diversions so yup you will be there for several years as an adult and if the schools are in the same level of value for you educationally go for the one with the best evirons.

    I have a family and it is important for me to be reasonably near a grandma for my wife and I to rely on. I have been accepted to a school that is not especially highly ranked, but is near my mother and am considering withdrawing from all except the highest ranked schools that are still considering me. I would not do this if I did not really like the school, however.

    Intuition - feeling like it's where you're meant to be.

    I don't know what I'm going to do, but residential life is important to me. I haven't had a roomate since 1996 and have just gotten used to being on my own. I enjoy having my own space and privacy and apparently the schools I've gotten into all have rooms which you have to share - or you share a suite with others.

    nothing short of harvard or stanford could possibly pull me away from NYC.
