    Congrats TylerB and Texasrn!! Still waiting to hear back from them, but I'm assuming since I haven't heard anything from them and if they require a response by 12/21, then that's a rejection letter for me

    Marco which program did you like the best? Can you tell me where you are from?
  11. by   marco346
    Hey tenshiblue, I only know about what I was told by faculty and current students about either schools. From what I heard they each had their own perks. Memorial had the most perk financially where it was the cheapest of the schools and u only pay tuition for the first year. Furthermore, ur health insurance is free. Then when u start clinical after the 1st year, u get a stipend of $100/week. Which goes a long way when ure not working. Also it the students r the ones that ran the OR at memorial, so u get plenty of experiences. Although they mostly do "bread and butter" cases from what I could gather from the students. U get sent out on rotations to outside hospitals for other experiences. As for st Raphael, I can't recall everything bout what they told me but I didn't hate it either. It's not as cheap n u pay all year round. Furthermore, u don't get n e stipend. However, the students I met there were raving about the program. I don't remember hearing too many negative comments. I do remember too much else about actual clinical experience, if u had to compete with other students or even residents for cases. I'm hoping someone else could chime in. Or maybe if u heard more about the school, u could fill me in. In n e case, I hope I've been able to help.
