I have been lucky enough to be accepted at both UCSF/SFSU and SMU, but I'm having a hard time deciding between the two schools. UCSF has a better ranking and is cheeper, but SMU has more clinical hours. I would be living at home either way so the difference in cost of living doesn't really matter. Did anyone on here attend either school? Anyone have any advice for me? Thanks!!

If you live in Oakland, I'd go with SMU. I just don't see how attending a school that's split between 3 different campuses (UCSF/SFSU) could be manageable regardless of whether you have a car or use public transit, I feel like it would take too much time/energy away from school and study.

If you're in SF though, UCSF is the best choice.
