I've been reading similar threads on making this decision as well, and I'd like to add my advice, even though it looks like you've decided almost for UConn. I'm at UConn for undergrad, state resident, and will most likely go to UConn for DSchool. Throughout my experience here, and my contacts with students and faculty at Farmington, I have a few things to add:
1. The curriculum is obviously challenging, but you'll learn a lot. It's not that the material is hard, from what I've heard, it's just that it's a large volume: "like drinking from a fire hydrant" is what I was told. It's ok though because it's P/F and the students help each other pass. Even during my undergrad experience, I can say honestly that UConn students want to see each other succeed. I was told ~5-10% of the class (2-4 people) fails each exam, and usually it's different people each time. They are given an opportunity to retake the exam (or portion of the exam) if they fail, and usually most pass the 2nd time.
2. The professors at UConn are wonderful. There are ~40 in your class, so each professor will get to know you very well. This is awesome when/if you chose to specialize, since you'll have people who know you very well to write your recs, etc. They will include much more detail about your character and your strengths in your recs.
3. You'll have ample opportunities (funded) to do research during the summers if you chose, also something to consider compared to the other schools if you want to specialize.
4. UConn and Hartford Hospital are officially merging. So, there's a brand new patient pool. Also, I know the clinics are always packed and it takes patients a long time to get appointments in Farmington as it is.
5. UCONN BASKETBALL!!!!! Need I say more?
Best of luck with your decision, and I hope to see you in the UConn SDM c/o 2013!!! (Hopefully you'll get a chance to make it to the open house in Jan to get a second look at the school!)
