I cant decide between Ohio State and UIC. I was accepted into both and now dont know what to do. With UIC I have the advantage of being in Chicago but at OSU i just really liked the atmosphere. I go to University of Illinois- Champaign right now and thats another reason i like UIC bc I will know people in the city and everything. Im originally from IL but my parents moved to Cleveland 2 years ago so i really dont know anyone at all in OH. What factors do you guys look at when trying to decide on a school? And which do you think is better in your mind? Also where do most dental students live in the Ohio State area? Thanks so much! :confused:

Dont let the fact that you now people or dont know people in a certain area dictate where u will go to school. You will meet new people, and will not have a great deal of time to socialize while in dental school. Pick whichever school made you feel more comfortable and which environment you would like to spend the next 4 years, and perhaps even open a practice later. good luck

Which school would be cheaper?

Exactly...go to the less expensive school. You will thank yourself in 4 years.
