The new site is all but complete. Expect changes soon!

Back to the story. I went on three interviews in September: EVMS on 9/9, VCU on 9/15, and Drexel on 9/22. By my third interview, I’d come to the realization that medical schools are not easily ranked. While there is some variance, every one of the country’s 125 schools has to adhere to the LCME’s standards, which are understandably quite rigorous; as a result, any U.S. medical school graduate is capable of being a great doctor. However, not every school approaches the standard curriculum the same way, and not every school places the same emphases on the same topics. Furthermore, each school seems to have its own personality and character as expressed through their students.

I took some detailed notes of each school after coming home from the interview, but I’ll spare you all the boredom; perhaps I’ll put them somewhere more static for the truly curious. Suffice to say that after those three interviews, and the two that came in October, I haven’t yet found a school that receives high marks in every category. Every one of them has many characteristics I like and a few that I don’t like. In the end, if I’m fortunate enough to have a choice, I know I’m going to have a difficult time making a decision.

…Okay, so I’m being slightly coy in that last paragraph. I do, in fact, have a choice. But I’ll get into that a bit later. 😉
