i agree.....cheaper should be a top priority. if i'm not mistake, that $20k over 4 years will make it's tutition identical to U of MD. Therefore, I would try to base your decision on location...
do you like california better or baltimore? i dunno where loma linda is located, but baltimore is an OK city (however, the crime rate is kinda scary ). where do you want to practice? i would lean towards loma linda if you want to move back to california....the opportunities to network in california won't be available if you're in B'more.
congrats & best of luck to you. if you decide to turn down U of MD, let Meehan know that jackbauer! is patiently awaiting his offer
Haven't heard back from UCLA? I'm still hoping to see you there next year. IMO, go to Maryland. That school, their philosophy, everything about it is just awesome. If I hadn't been accepted to UCLA, I prob would have gone to MD. Good luck man, hope to see you in Westwood!
