How is Iowa a "better" school than Creighton? I know schools are not ranked, but consider location, research and technology. Creighton is bordered by the ghetto of Omaha, which provides and excellent patient pool. Likewise, Iowa has an excellent patient pool. Creighton is dated. Dr. Ayers will state that it's the biggest disadvantage (when I interviewed few years ago). There are no sim labs. If you're a more technology incline person- Iowa wins hands down. IUSD and Creighton are well due for an update. IUSD is PBL...Creighton.
There is much to say. Omaha is family style city which makes living around the school pleasant whereas Iowa is a college city which is nice but a little different. Indiana is right downtown which I am sure you saw when you visited. Creighton is focused on small teams and a close knit environment. I also got into Creighton and Iowa and I was going between Creighton and Minnesota. I choose Minnesota for a few reasons but I really scoped out my choices. Creighton has a focus on getting the students what they need to succeed, a friend I know attends and is super happy. The Sim lab is newer than Iowa but not as new as Minnesota , but it makes it nice to use the equipment which trust me you will find very important after all the time we spend in sim lab. The clinic is great, the way the equipment works is efficient. If you plan to live in the Midwest Creighton sure has the name recognition that will help in making contacts and working with labs in the area. All three are good programs and Indiana is blah then Iowa is mediocre but Creighton in my opinion is a great school. I spent a good amount of time studying up on the school, I revisited before I made my final deposit just to make sure. Let me know how it goes, wherever you end up great work.
Depends on what you are looking for, what were your experiences when you were there? Do you want a larger city? Closer to family? Research? Depends on many things...Iowa has some problems though, you were there you saw them.
Exactly!What problems do Iowa supposedly have?? I toured there and thought it was the top notch school out of all of them that I saw...
PS just so you know when you ask people about what school you should choose, I don't know if you notice by some people will tell you wrong or misleading info about a school because they want to go there and are on the waitlist so they are hoping you don't choose it. I've noticed numerous times people saying how bad they want to go to a school and then a couple days later they tell people how it's a "Bad" school
