Brown's PLME program is a 8 year program too. I was accepted in it, but instead I opted for USC because of a huge scholarship. It's also closer to my home in Palos Verdes Estates, so I can wake up every morning staring at the ocean and smelling the sea breeze instead of waking up to nothing but snow in Rhode Island. It was 75 degrees today in CA. Wonder how cold it was at Northwestern in Evanston? Obviously you're misinformed also. The average MCAT score of a USC med school student is a point per section higher than Northwestern and Brown, and the tuition is significantly lower. So I'm kicking it at USC with our beautiful So Cal weather, gorgeous women, and my two awesome German cars. Not to discredit Northwestern or Brown. My little bro just got accepted by Brown PLME program early decision and is awaiting Northwestern and USC. He'll probably make them all, and it will be a hard decision. In the end, he'll probably also choose to go to USC for free and be closer to home instead of paying $40,000 a year to be on the East Coast.
