I know this is a personal decision, but if u had to pick between the two, which would u pick and why? If money wasn't an issue I would easily pick USC because 1) I grow up in the area; 2) I like the new clinically-oriented curriculum; 3) plus I hear the clinical experience at county is kickass. UCSD is reputated as an excellent medical school, it's ranked ten spots higher than USC, but I also hear that the curriculum can be hellish. But it's cheap! any thoughts?
