I would choose Rush because Chicago's awesome. I'm from Illinois, though, so I may be biased. :)

Maybe you should pick the school that:

1) wasn't owned by 3 different companies over the last few years
2) Hasn't changed their name 4 times

This is a little misleading. And i'm not sure of why it would make a difference in this choice. Perhaps an evaluation of their curricula, facilities, and clerkship experiences may be of better help. Even a look at their residency matching perhaps and even a consideration of the overall atmosphere and location versus one's own personality and needs/expectations? How about differences in tuition? These are all factors that I would consider before the name or history of school affiliations. Maybe Rush would be better for a particular individual, maybe Drexel. A lot of it really involves personal values and impressions.

Also being from Illinois, and also loving Chicago, I would say choose Drexel so I might still have a shot to get into Rush :)

To be honest, I know nothing about Drexel, and Rush has a pretty good rep.

If you are concerned with reputation or ranking, they are in the same general league.

I say, go with whichever one is cheaper.
