    Got a choice to make, and I know its gotta come from within, but any wisdom from you guys?

    For residency im interested in surgery, probably neuro...any school have a slight edge?

    I'm considering MD/JD too, but I don't think UMich has a specific program set in place.
    I don't know about UChicago though.

    UMich v. Pritzker?

    Pritzker would win... if it had a knife.

    Prestige is similar

    I think the major issue is Location. Do you like a college town that's frickin' cold or a big city that's frickin' cold? :)

    Jesting aside, Michigan has a better hospital system but Pritzker has a much more diverse patient population due to hyde park. Both schools are pass/no pass and are research powerhouses. *shrug* Close call.

    I think that if you have to make a thread to compare schools, then you are probably basing your decision on a coin flip. Why leave it up to that... choose sports teams...

    who do you like better the Michigan Wolverines or Da Bears?


    If you don't care for sports... choose who have the better looking uniforms/colors.

    Wait until Friday when UMich makes scholarship decisions. I'd go with UMich over Pritzker though, but that's just me. As others have said, it mostly comes down to if you prefer a big city over the quintessential college town...

    I think NickNaylor did, but he got a huge scholarship from Chicago. Ask him what he would have done if he didn't get that scholarship?

    Some undergrads at the University of Chicago recently created a website where nerds at this institution can hook up for casual sex. Which may or may not appeal to you but it is something worth considering as you weigh the pros and cons of each school. Personally, I would probably choose Michigan unless Pritzker has a better financial aid package.

    There really is no decision here. Pritzker.
