I may end up in either if these cities, and I can't go to revisit weekends unfortunately . So...does anyone have perspectives? I know Philly is supposed to be much better than the ****hole known as Baltimore (just quoting) but does the city REALLY matter when you're a busy med student? Philadelphia also has many more med students/grad schools/other schools/young people in general. As a med student, do philly-ites hang out with other people, or do people mostly just stick to their class? aka, should I consider this an important social factor or not?
