At this stage in the game this is purely speculation and driven by curiosity. I have interviewed at both schools, however, and am interested to hear which school others would choose, given the choice? Lets assume finances will turn out to be about equal (Stanford has amazing fin aid) and that the person deciding is interested in landing a prestigious residency but is unsure of future career plans. If possible, lets also neutralize location because people have their own biases for Nor Cal or So Cal, I want to hear about the schools (curriculum, clinical training, research, students, facilities etc. comparison).
