    I was just wondering what everyone's reasoning is for attending or choosing the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

    If I decide to attend, it will be strictly because of the tuition, and the fact that my wife and I have a house here and both of our families are here.

    I guess I should answer my own question since there hasn't been much of a response.

    1. It's a good primary care school
    2. International opportunities to Latin America
    3. Cheap tuition
    4. Diverse patient population at surrounding hospitals
    5. Diverse Student body
    6. Early clinical experience
    7. New facilities
    8. Cheap area to live
    9. Research interest in queer/latino populations
    10. Option to do a MD/MPH
    11. Problem based learning

    I think these are most of them. I was just wondering what were other people's thoughts.
