Hi, I need to make a decision by Saturday night and could use some advice. Thank you to anyone who has information.

Albany
Pros:
-NBME exams
-20 min from airport (easier to get there and fly home)
-home hospital (don’t have to worry about moving around)
-140 students
-seems like faculty is more organized
-10k cheaper than Drexel

Cons:
-Not true p/f, top 15% honors
-no direct flight from LA
-full day of travel

Drexel (west reading campus)
Pros:
-true p/f
-home hospital in reading

Cons:
-far from airport (I’m from LA)
-middle of no where
-300 class size but 40 on reading campus
-administration seems disorganized

I was really disappointed to get the west reading campus. I would like to go home every couple of months and it would be a huge pain to get to the airport from reading.

Does Albany have a teaching hospital?

Albany. Having a home teaching hospital is a big plus, and the travel to LA will be a little easier. It may not be a direct flight, but the Albany airport is very easy to deal with—never long lines, and cheap longterm parking.

Thank you so much!
 
Albany for the teaching hospital (and its associated residency programs), stability in one location, and cost.
