Hey guys, I know that these kind of threads can be a little vague, but I've searched through the forum archives and there's really only one other thread that compares these schools and it's from 2003. This is a difficult decision for me. I'm from Pittsburgh but most of the people that I would want to be close to are from Philly. I enjoy the clinical aspect of medicine much more than research, but Pitt has such a fantastic reputation that it might not even matter that they're a "research school," plus it's a lot cheaper. Thoughts?
