From my last post I ended up choosing to go to Upenn, but I just got accepted to Columbia. I really like both schools but the only big difference that I could come up with for me personally would be Philly>NYC, and Penn is cheaper due to scholarship I got from them. Anyone chosen one over the other, please share your reason. Thanks!

totally different schools and training.
Columbia the students are taking basic science courses with the medical students. Teaching you to be better thinkers. More research opportunities....
