Having trouble making my rank list and would appreciate opinions on the following programs:

-Penn
-UCSF
-Hopkins
-Partners

I liked all of these places after interviewing and felt that they were all very similar and so I'm having a lot of difficulty determining my rank order...

Thanks in advance for any advice you all have!

Honestly, all 4 are fantastic, and you will get great training and be well-positioned for fellowships coming out of any of them. There are some slight differences in subspecialty style and exposure among those 4, so if you have an idea of what you ultimately want to do with your career, it might help to investigate that a bit further. Also, if you want to do a specific kind of research (if that is your thing), then you can identify any unique research mentors and and use that in your decision process.

Really though, do you want to live in Baltimore, San Francisco, Boston, or Philadelphia? Your answer to that question should probably hold the most weight. It did for me.
