At this point, I think the argument over whether the US News top Med School Rankings have any real meaning has been beaten to the point that everyone has decided one way or another whether to put any stock in the rankings. That said, this poll is just as simple as it sounds: regardless of your belief in whether or not the US News rankings are meaningful, realistically, will the "prestige" of going to a higher-ranked med school factor into your decision if you are lucky enough to get to choose between multiple offers? Secondarily, do you believe that the US News Rankings are meaningful? Please elaborate on your responses below. In particular, I'm interested in knowing whether the size of the difference in ranking would affect whether you would take the Rankings into account when you make your decision; i.e., if you were indifferent towards a school ranked five spots above a school that you loved in your interview, would you care about the rankings? What if the difference was 20 spots? What if the school you were indifferent about was in the top 20 and the school you loved was unranked?
