Did you have the option to do all of your rotations in Madison? Also, how do you think their rotations fare against MCW?I graduated from UW, part of me would still like to get a refund. The education is adequate, the clinical experience in Madison is superb. However, they farmed us out to rural areas (under the bs guise of a "statewide campus") where the clinical experience was horrendous. Add to this the housing (which is not always provided) was lame, some locations during 3rd year has students sharing bedrooms, some locations 4th year had students living in a hospital room in "a quiet area of the hospital". In the end, I was adequately prepared for intern year, though this largely was due to 4th year electives done in Madison. I'm fairly certain I could have gotten an identical education almost anywhere and saved myself from having primary care and public health jammed down my throat, and saved myself from being outside of Madison in three superstar cities for 24 weeks of 3rd year. So it's up to you, generally I'd say go with the cheapest school but in this case buyer beware.
