I was looking for some opinions on deciding which school to attend. Of two choices, both are integrated programs with a ton of clinical experience. One school seems to be a more "student friendly" program (giving days off after call, etc). The downside is I would have a 30 - 50 min commute depending on clinical site.
The other program, I have been told uses students as staff, has a lot of call and may require clinical time even during academic breaks. This program is within 5-15 min commute and I should qualify for in-state tuition and save about $7000. My question is: Which is more important...a short commute and cheaper tuition or a more student/family friendly program?
If I were to decide just based on the information you provided, I, personally, would choose the one further away.
What does your heart and/or gut tell you?
Like many things in life, you get what you pay for...
BTW, my commute to school is a 45 minute drive one way (82 miles roundtrip) , M-TR.
