    Yes Georgetown is in hot red oil. That's why they charge about $100 for their secondary; in an attempt to raise money off of poor innocent pre-meds. I read the minutes of one of their board meetings. Some guy suggested that they halt all MD/PhD scholarships so that only the "true and dedicated researchers" will attend their program. Smart move! That should give WashU a run for their money <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Schools/hospitals with current problems include (to one degree or another)...G'town, Sinai, Penn, Temple (somewhat), BI - Deaconess (Harvard)....can't think of any other current problems...but I'm sure someone can help.

    I have read that Stanford is in trouble and Hanhneman was in deep deep trouble in 1998. NYU also has some financial debt.

    Albany Medical Center is in trouble too. More than 20 MD positions, mostly in primary care, have been terminated two months ago.
