    Not sure where else to post this. I don't think there's an alumni section, but I'm struggling right now to decide between 3 schools - SUNY Upstate, SUNY Downstate, and Georgetown.

    I've read a lot of negative things about SUNY Upstate from recent graduates on SDN saying that the clinical training is seriously lacking - that most don't know how to draw blood, and do an LP, and are very behind their peers when they enter residency.

    SUNY Downstate - everyone says that the clincials are amazing. I just don't know how I'd feel about living in Brooklyn. I'm from Denver, Colorado and this would be quite an adjustment for me.

    Georgetown - I thought Georgetown was great. It's just rediculously expensive.

    Anyone know of an alumni that could confirm or rebute the following information? (Especially SUNY Upstate - I have to make a decision very soon). Please PM me!

    Moving to Pre-Allo as this is a pre-med issue. Allopathic medical students read and reply to threads in Pre-Allo and can do so with this thread.
