I am currently trying to decide between these two schools. UWSOM is my state school and I have been given a full four years tuition scholarship. However, I have also been given a four-year scholarship to Stanford. With this scholarship, I would only have to pay $5,000/year to go to Stanford. I really like both schools and was wondering if anybody had any ideas on how to decide between the two. Stanford is more prestigious and is in California, but my long-term significant other (5 years) and sibling will both be going to UWSOM this fall. I also want to become a surgeon. Pros/Cons of both schools? Thoughts, advice?
