While we're at it, or U of Cincinnati?

Being an IMG, I really don't know how I'd choose since I'm not intimately familiar with any of these programs, except what I knew on my interview days and that wasn't enough. I need some sincere help.

My goal is to pursue a fellowship after IM (not sure what, equally attracted to everything except rheum) .My gut feelings were Iowa-Cinci-TJU, but a friend advised against guts and recommended brains. That's why I'm in a muddle.

Another factor is that my wife is applying next year, for IM too. If I were to match in Iowa, it'd be a must for her to match there too, since it is the only residency program in Iowa City.

If anyone can give me any input, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks

I don't know much about U of Iowa or U of Cinci, but I can tell you about Jefferson (I am an MS4 here). They have a strong clinical reputation in the area, and their fellowship match rates are extremely good. They have matched almost everyone in cards and GI that applied in the past couple years. Hope that helps.
