I would go with StV over UMDNJ, if it's the UMDNJ in Newark and on probation. I don't see any advantages of UMDNJ over StV, except perhaps being a university based program, but it's rep is pretty lowly so I wouldn't be swayed by that. Robert Wood Johnson, though, I would pick over StV.

Definitely St. Vinny's over UMDNJ.... just my opinion. Can't beat St. Vinny's location in the city, some pretty nice people there, etc.

Good luck with the decision!

There are no good anesthesiology programs in either NJ, NY, or Pennsylvania. The latter two states' programs are too unstable. As for NJ...programs just suck. This is fact.

What exactly is the "etc"...I'd love to hear that, huh?

columbia used to be until all this merger crap happened...upenn is hardly a well-respected program. you see, ivy association really mean little when it comes to the quality of the individual program. e.g., mgh has VERY average program, but you probably think it would be excellent. it's very complicated, more than I could get into here, so don't worry about it and go to upenn...they try to get a job.
