    let's say you have stellar stats, EC, recs, and everything else, which school would you choose to attend, and why? :)

    School:
    St. George University
    Reason:
    Leave other people more chances to get into Harvard.

    My dream school?
    Any school with a 99:1 Female to male ratio.
    Anyone want to practice physical exams?

    :)

    Seriously, I have some preferred schools, but I'm still at the point of "any school that will take me."

    How much are we allowed to dream with this?

    First of all, they all lead to the same end...I used to specify "preferences," but right now, I just feel so honored to have been accepted.

    Having said that...in a perfect, utopian and Neverending Story-esque world (ah, the sounds of Erasure now drift through my head!!!), I'd choose....

    Yale Med, except with the entire school lifted up and plunked down into NY City!!!! :D ;)

    I agree, Yale, except I think it might lose something if it were put in a huge city.

    UPenn is my first choice. They rock the party at Pediatrics and Surgery, my two favorite things in the whole world....besides women.

    this is turning into the dream mate thread...

    "she's gotta have a firm stomach and a tight ass. If she doesn't love to learn and give great head she's not good enough. Oh yeah, she also has to be a great artist, love me even if I'm a janitor and enjoy sitting around watching basketball and football. And umm.. that cooking and cleaning bit" :D

    Probably WashU

    Reason: I'm an undergrad here, and i love it. All t he profs are great, they care about you. It's good for research.

    but.... this really shouldn't mean much.. i haven't looked into schools yet. Oh, and i'll add to that, hopkins, duke.

    GWU. DC isn't where my home is at the moment, but certainly where my heart is. It was also my undergrad school, and I like their curriculum.

    Is there anyone else who doesn't care what med school they go to just as long as they go to one? :D :D :D . At this point, I'd take any med school who will accept me.

    Well, since we're all dreaming... Stanford or Harvard would be my top choices... but really, any one that would accept me could certainly win a place in my heart.

  24. Although it is rare to find a UCLA Bruin whose first choice is not UCLA.... I have to say my dream school is UCSF... but since I just got rejected from them last week.... UCLA is numero uno!

    In my wildest dreams it would probably be UCSF... I visited it and loved it. San Fran is beautiful in general. Aaaah Dreams!

    My dream school is a school that teaches their students to learn and accept other forms of medicine, like Howard or GW in D.C.

    UCSF is definitely at the top of my list. I could live in the Bay Area for the rest of my life and die happy. :)

    UCSF here, too. As someone else already said, I can live here in Bay area for the rest of my life and die happy. UCSF has a great hospital and the whole city is like, well, like a dream. there is no sense of hostility here, like in other big cities. plus all the different cultures and their yummy foods...the major reason

    Yale is my dream school. Love New Haven and the med school. Not crazy about the coed bathrooms and showers though.

    Mayo!!!!

    I just came back from an interview there, and I was very, very impressed. It was my first choice before going there, and afterwards there is no doubt in my mind!
