prp25 Posted November 29, 2021 Share Posted November 29, 2021 School A 40K less (in state tuition) 29 months Starts/ends sooner - not working right now, so this is really nice In a city I already live in and love Warmer weather Better attrition More condensed city - short commutes for rotations possible (hate driving) School B 27 months 1 more month of elective experience Aligned with mission/values more Good clinical affiliations New area, exciting to try a new environment Allows for away rotations Have family support nearby (potential medical connections as well) Newer program (by 3 years though) Emphasis on early clinical exposure and leadership More name-brand in medicine Overall, I feel like School B sold themselves better and I left the interview so excited and impressed with everything about the school, could really see myself there. School A, knowing they are cheaper, probably didn’t feel the need to sell themselves so I don’t know much about the curriculum details. I don’t want to be distracted by shiny private school amenities and “good vibes” when practically, I know I’ll get the same degree at the end. My family likes the idea of being closer to extended family and the name of School B, but I know they are biased. Does it matter where you go to school in the end? Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
