Hello everyone. I have been debating this issue for quite some time now. I really liked both schools when I visited, as they had friendly, down-to-earth students and excellent opportunities for research/clinical work. I am originally from the NE, so while Pitt would be closer to home for me, Cali would be a new experience, having lived in the east coast all my life. I am strongly interested in academic medicine at this time. Thank you very much!
