    Summary of Application Experience

    in the end, i chose arizona because of cost (although a couple other schools were cheaper because of scholarship offers), spanish, weather, proximity to family, laid-back and friendly environment, and because it just felt like a happy place to spend four years on my interview day. definitely not the highest ranked school i was accepted to (it's actually one of the lowest, i think), but i learned through the interviewing process that that doesn't mean a whole lot. i think choosing the school at which you personally can be the most successful is the most important, and if your debt will exceed $500,000 post-residency (here's looking at you georgetown and boston), cross them off of your list if you're given a cheaper option.

    hopefully i still agree with that in four years...
