    Dear Cutekatieg,
    Thanks for your question. Of course you have to look at both schools and decide which one is a better fit for you. If they are equal, the answer is easy. Assuming Tulane is a better fit, then how much more are you willing to pay to go there? And where is that money coming from? If you are like many medical students who rely on loans, then having to repay that kind of money with future earnings is no small thing.
    It seems to me this is a personal decision with a strong economic component. I know what I would do, but that may not be right for you.
    With best wishes,

    Thanks for your advice. I’ll be taking out loans to pay for all of med school. If you dont mind me asking, what would you do?

    I just graduated from Yale in May and had between a 3.3 and 3.4. I retook the MCAT in August only to make the same score I had made last August: 26S. I went up in the two science sections (bio and physical sciences) but went down from an 11 to a 9 in my strongest section, which was verbal. So overall, my score stayed the same yet the sections I worked hardest on, I improved in. I’ve applied to 15 schools, some being state schools and others being private schools. I dont know if I should retake it in January, or even if schools would consider January scores since I’m applying for admission for the fall of 2007. Do you have any advice and what do you think my chances of acceptance are? Thank you for your time.

    –Katie
