Kids at Pitt are super competitive? Where did you get that? All I've been hearing is that the student body is really supportive of each other (which is the impression I got when I visited), and that students at Pritzker are hardcore and competitive.attaboybambeeks said:u cant be chicago as a city. its amazing.
kids are pitt are super competitive. culture at a school is important for me.
Are you accepted to both of those schools? If so, you can't make a bad choice as far as the education you'd get at either school. Go to your second look weekends, see what your financial aid packages look like, and then you'll know which one to pick.RonBurgundy said:Which one did you like better/why?
My impression while visiting Pitt (and staying with a student and hanging out with a bunch of them) was that this wasn't the case at ALLattaboybambeeks said:
Crap. That was not my observation at all. In fact, they seemed less snotty than the people I saw at other (lower ranked) schools.attaboybambeeks said:
Yes. People at Pitt Med are normal, nice, non-competitive people. It is an excellent place to study medicine. I would not pick any school in the country over Pitt.mercaptovizadeh said:Crap.

I GO to Pitt. I think I can make statements about my class.IgweEmeka said:ok...you all go to an interview one day and all of a sudden are already making generalizations about how competitive or non-competitive the students are....u haven't spent a week with these so called non-competitive or competitive students to truly understand how they are. Just cause they smile at you and eveyone seems happy doesn't mean there is not some cutthroat competition going on...
There are 100+ students in most/all medical schools and i am sure you would find the competitive, non-competitive and middle students within the bunch. Make your decision on financial aid, future chance of practicing in surrounding area, rotations, family and friends in close proximity and other things that are more important. When u get to medical school, find your niche.
Yeah I am curious as well. I don't remember hearing anything about a new curriculum. As this is currently the place I will be attending next year, I would be very interested in learning this from someone. Thanks yall!!acepoint said:what this new u of chicago curriclum people are talking about? they didn't say anything about it on the interview day...
