Cornell versus Yale
Hello i'm an IMG, and i got accepted to Yale and Cornell for a clinical elective. I wanted some advice in deciding which one is better. My main issues being, Yale maybe an ivy but its no. 72 in primary care, as opposed to Cornell which ranks no 58. and of course New York Presbytarian Hospital has a great reputation! Also ive heard that Yale issues a very generic LOR, as opposed to Cornell which might give students better LORS,of course based on performance. As in according to general trend Yale is a bit lax with the LORS. However i don't know how true this statement maybe. Along with, yale is a whole $1000 more pricier than Cornell, and only only offers a total of a 3 week elective as opposed to Cornell which offers a full month, allowing more time to build a rapport with the supervisor. However my elective in Yale is with the professor of the internal medicine department, whereas in Cornell its merely with an Assistant Professor, so of course that counts too. BUT at the end of the day IF im just getting a generic LOR from Yale, does it really matter?
Could someone please help me out, i only applied to these two places, so unfortunately its too late to apply to Harvard or a better place.
Also if someone could link me up with somebody whose already been to Yale, it would be great, since i wanted information on housing etc and general feedback.
Thank you so very much=)
