Campus selection

Recommended Posts

I am debating between Hamilton or Waterloo for my campus selection in rankings. Are there any clear advantages to either? Is there a difference in matching rates or in exposure to different specialties? Any other factors I should consider?

Only major factors are

1. Mac spends BUTT TON of our tuition on VC that barely works

2. Some specialities are under represented. That being said, good friends of mine just did their electives elsewhere (like most ppl do) and matched well. There's no real dif in matching.

I would rank Hamilton first. You get a more traditional med school experience, comparable to other med students, you get access to all the specialists in Hamilton and you don't have to deal with an absolutely horrible VC system. I would estimate more than half the time we had any sort of lecture, group meeting, tutorial, talk, the regional campus students would be cut out of the lecture in some form or another. In my humble opinion, if you are going to do distance learning, why are you paying 27000 a year? 

Matching is likely broadly similar, people match to competitive specialties from regional campuses. I don't think its a huge detriment to your career going to a regional campus, but unless you have a regional attachment to that campus, I wouldn't rank it first.
