    make the poll a little longer and ask us what car you should drive, what organic chem textbook you should use, and what to wear for a first date.

    How about you tell us where YOU want to go? do you mind the cold? USC and NU are a world apart in terms of weather and overall atmosphere (Evanston/Chicago vs. Los Angeles).

    there's a lot more to picking a school than how much scholarship money you're getting.

    i go to tcnj, so if you want to ask questions about the school specifically, i'd be happy to answer. i also applied to njms, so...ditto.

    I'd vote for Northwestern if you don't mind the cold/want to be closer to the Northeast for family reasons and USC's program if you hate snow or need to be closer to the West coast for whatever reason. However, I only applied to two of the schools you listed for med school and none of these schools for undergrad. I base my opinion on reputation and my own personal interest in being in a cool city like Chicago or LA over Hershey PA, Saint Louis MO, or New Brunswick NJ, with Northwestern taking a small preference in my mind due to friends' experiences in undegrad there versus knowing nothing about USC's undergrad or medical school climate.

    we're in ewing. it's even less cool than new brunswick. :laugh: tcnj has a great reputation and is ranked quite highly, despite the fact that almost no one outside of nj has heard of us :D

    Just to be picky - the PSU/Jefferson program is 6 years. 2 years at PSU, 4 years at Jeff.

    Again, just to be picky - the PSU/Jeff program doesn't send any of its kids to Hershey. You spend 2 years at State College, which PSU alumni seem to love with every ounce of being. (Seriously, the amount of pride that people take in being PSU alumni is scary at times. But I will admit that it's a great college town, and not a bad place to go to school.) Then they spend 4 years in Philadelphia, at Jefferson.

    I know some people who went to undergrad in New Brunswick, NJ. They liked it a lot - it was a good college town, and pretty close to NYC.
