Hi guys,

I know this discussion has been posted on many other forums, but I was just wondering if people could give me their opinion about this subject.

In terms of cost both schools are about the same, so that can?t really be used as a factor. Currently I live in LA, so if I choose USC I won?t have to deal with the hassle of moving. But the thing is that I want to specialize, I am 95% sure. I have no idea how good/bad USC students perform on the boards. I know Penn?s average is usually very high.

I am totally lost and have a few more days to make a decision. Please help! Thanks.

gee from your signature it looks like you already made the decision.


if you plan to do research, Upenn is quiet superior in that area.

Are you basing your decision on the fact that you are so lazy that your NBDE I scores will fall directly in line with your peers?

I'm constantly amazed at how SDNers believe that it is completely unfathomable for students to do better (or worse!) than the averages schools put out.

So, you?re saying it is possible? I would appreciate it if you would stop spreading half-truths on here itsgavinc. :horns:
