Here comes my contribution to this string of school A vs. school B threads....(had to include the necessary qualifier) So I have narrowed down my current acceptances to these two schools, and just can't decide between them. I was also told by UMich that I am "toward the top of the top 1/3 of the waitlist" meaning I have a pretty good chance at getting in there if their waitlist is as active as it has been in the past. I am also on the waitlist at WashU, and I would definitely take UMich or WashU over Pitt or NU. But I need to decide on either Pitt or NU for now, assuming I don't get off a waitlist. I am not crazy about the idea of living in downtown Chicago like everyone else seems to be. I think I would prefer a more moderately sized (and moderately priced) city like Pittsburgh. The weather at both places sucks, so that's not an issue. But I think I could live either place for 4 years and be ok. I had equally positive impressions of each school during my interviews, perhaps a slight edge to NU. So does anyone have any opinions about these schools? Or is anyone else facing the same choice? I'm not sure what specialty I want to go into, so I want to go to the place that would have the best overall reputation, giving me the best chance at landing my residency of choice. I've also heard some negative rumors about the clinical training at NU, and I've heard great things about the clinical training at Pitt. The main positive thing I hear about NU is the location. As you can see, I'm very split here. Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated!
