Hi everyone, I was accepted to four schools (one is out of the running - Touro CA - as I would have had to submitted by deposit already) and having a terrible time deciding where to go. Here are the details: LECOM (Erie) Pros: I really liked the people, love PBL, and it's not too expensive. My hubby can enroll in a grad program nearby. Can get a 3 bed townhome for under $1000. Cons: Two extra months of winter? NSU Pros: Awesome school, "college" feel, get to wear scrubs everyday. Location, location, location! Family within a few hours drive. Cons: Freaking expensive, no way in h*ll we'll afford a house, let alone a decent apartment. Grad school will also cost hubby lots more $$$. Kids hate Florida. (They are weird.) Texas Tech (Foster School of Medicine - El Paso) Pros: (Don't flame me!) It's an MD school. Least expensive (instate tuition of ~ $12K a year) Brand new facilities which are totally state of the art. Class of 40 for first year. Modified PBL. Can eat/drink in classrooms (at least for now.) Cons: In the middle of NO WHERE. Hot, dry desert. It's sister city, Juarez, is murder central. El Paso Times proudly reports that crime (mostly rapes and car robbery) is down, and only one category, "Murder, is up." One of the highest TB rates in nation. Have to start early to learn Spanish. (Pro?) So... I am interested in everyone's perspective. What would you do? Why? Other factors I am not considering? HEEEELLLLLLPPP MEEE!!!
