Vandy - I interviewed there, and I got a weird vibe. So, not sure what to say, maybe it was interview day.

UCIrvine - Its an ok place. A fried rotated there and I personally wouldnt recommend it. You dont really get to do much, and wont get to interact with the chair - Dr. Zachary.

Colorado - AWESOME, that is the only way to describe it. You should definitely consider it.

You might want to look into a research elective at Wake Forest. You would get a ton of writing done plus you can help out in the clinics as much or as little as you wish. And you get to know big wigs.

Plus if you like ultimate frisbee or meeting outgoing social people in general this is the place for you.
