I need advice on choosing between these two schools. UAB is my in-state school and I have a scholarship of $10,000 dollars per year at the school. However, I recently was accepted off of the waitlist to Georgetown SOM. I really love the new 1.5 year curriculum, extra elective rotations, opportunities to work with public policy, and the Washington D.C. area in general. Also, it seems that Georgetown's match list is more impressive than UAB's in regard to specialties. Does UAB have enough name recognition to get me to a top residency program outside of the south in specialties outside of primary care or is it worth the extra ~$150k for the name recognition and pros I listed out of Georgetown? All opinions welcome!
