OK wtf, my post didn't get thru the first time, I'll re-write it... Similar, but so very different than the "Harvard vs. Hopkins" thread. here is what I'm considering: Reputation: About the same?? I know Temple has great clinical exposure, but CMS has decent hospitals to rotate thru in Chi Town. I'm interested in surgery btw. Tuition: Temple: $30,020 (in state) CMS: $36,740 Grading: Temple: H/HP/P/C/F Finch: Numerical Grading Location: Go to school in Philly's ghetto and live in downtown Philly vs. middle of nowhere years 1 & 2 but live in Chi town yrs 3 & 4. Teaching Facilities: CMS: Good, but isolated Temple: Not so good from what I saw, will be mega construction going on too. Any thoughts would be very welcome!
