Medical School Choice (2010-2011 Cycle): Location, Location, Location
April has arrived and many of you have received one or more acceptances to medical school. Congratulations! (For those of you still on the waitlist or waiting to hear from schools, check out the multiple waitlist posting or shoot us an e-mail for personalized help).
There are multiple factors that should guide choosing which medical school to attend. Location is paramount. You will be living in this place for at least the next four years. Do you like the city/town? Do you have family, friends, or other social supports there? How’s the weather? Is there anything to do outside of medicine? Does the location support your extracurricular and community service goals? Can you afford to live there?
As my father always says when we discuss real estate, “Location, location, location.” It’s just as important when deciding on a medical school. Choose wisely.
