Whilst I loved Maimonides, I am concerned about it being a primary track program. Can you shed some light on the differences between a categorical and a primary track program? (i plan on pursuing a fellowship afterwards)

HEEELLLPPP!

Maimonides is a primary track program. So is a categorical track at university of Toledo or Texas tech uni better than a primary one?

I think you should decide based on what you want in the future. Its not to say that you absolutely can not do fellowship after primary but the 3 years of training are focused towards becoming a general pediatrics (you'll still get exposure to specialties because even gen peds needs that). On the contrary, a categorical program allows more leeway for specialization. Both will make you a wonderful pediatrician, one is just more equipped towards specialization (you can still do gen peds if you choose categorical). So give it some consideration based on your personal goals.

I really appreciate the advice. I do plan on doing a subspecialty in the future. However my concern is, that Maimonides (primary) has a far better reputation than University of Toledo (categorical). SHould that factor in to my decision?

in my opinion, it definitely should. Especially if you choose to do a fellowship in the tri-state area. If I were in your shoes, I would look into their graduate placement statistics and/or speak to a current resident or graduate about their options.

Default The Brooklyn Hospital

If I were you I would put TBH in the bottom of the list. I haven't been to Richmond so I don't know which one is worse but THB really deserves to be in the bottom of the list.
During the hospital tour I Learned They only have 12 in-patient beds!. the Hem/Onc service is only Hem with zero ONcology exposure(same for Lincoln but at least they realized their deficiencies and set you up with some awesome rotations outside at Memorial Slogan, Cornell and Montefiore), You don't do anything in the NICU (the resident giving the tour said you only do ABGs!). pretty week program. No research whatever.

Personally I'm not going to rank them.
