    Have you gotten into both of these schools?

    Are you a New Yorker?

    What's the environment like at Stony Brook? I visited UConn back in September, and I was particularly disappointed with the complete lack of anything to do in the Farmington area. On top of that, the closest "city" isn't much of a city either. So while I was really impressed with the niceness of everyone I met at UConn, from the students right up to the dean himself, I didn't think I'd be happy living there.

    Stony Brook is a quiet beautiful town without much to do in the immediate area. There are a few rocky beaches nearby, etc. However, it's only an hour to an hour and 1/2 train ride to NYC and the long island railroad (LIRR) goes right by the Stony Brook campus.

    I don't know anything about Stony Brook but I think your state of residency could make a difference in which school I would recommend. UCONN has nice facilities but the area is definitely suburban, with no real city life unless you go 2 hours to Boston. However, everyone I met a UCONN really liked it and the administration seemed to care about the students. UCONN also has a small med school class (about 80) which is a plus or minus depending on the person.
