So I was walking out of work today after recieving the news that I had been waitlisted at Columbia, I was in the subway and my phone rang with an anonymous number... yada, yada, yada

Johns Hopkins is calling candidates to inform them that they are accepted :D :D :D

Conglats. Although Harvard is considered the top med school, JH is regarded as the best hospital in the world. better than Columbia for sure.

I heard that many JHU students are unhappy because of competition and long hours, but i am sure it is worth it.

Actually, little untold truth is that JHU is the best medical school as well. Harvard relies far too much on its legacy. I hope you go to JHU. It is the best medical school. Period. And congratulations. This is a very, very impressive prize you've bagged.

I am...
I am trying to time my med school apps with my fiances' Clinical psych PhD apps. One of my criteria is that we must be able to live together ie. same geographic location... I will not know where I can matriculate until she knows where she is going. (Clinical psych PhD's are more competitive than med schools becaus ethey only admit 6-10 students to a class).

I loved CCLCM and I have not yet ruled it out. I will see you at the revisit.

The debate about "the best medical school" is not even worth having. There are so many categories of greatness to excel in that there is definitely no objective basis to measure it, and probably not even a subjective one. Some might say that the clinical prowess of the doctors produced is most important (it is a school after all), but some would argue that the volume and importance of the research published is the most important criterion. (Personally, I think that indicates a strong graduate school and faculty, and not much about the education, training, and students). Anyway, "best medical school" means different things to different people.

EDIT: The debate is worth having, but not only will there be no conclusion, but probably not even the most general consensus.
