I’d say go where you want to *stay and live* That way, when you do your preceptorship and avenue you can easily be hired at that specific hospital once you grad. I’m not sure about the length of the other program, but if acceleration is a factor then definitely consider the trade off. As a Vancouver resident, the housing prices here are ridiculous which will only add to your student loans (if you are taking one out) and burden you once you grad. Honestly, write out a pros and cons list and see where your heart stands at the end of it. Congrats and best of luck!
