Default Metropolitan - NYMC? How to rank?

I really don't know how or if I should rank this hospital. As any NY program the place has a lot of scutwork, violence, bad environment and very high cost of living. The interview process was the worst and the hospital seems to be falling apart. But they have a very strong fellowship placement. In fact in this year they matched everyone in very good places. For example: the chief went to Beth Israel - NY. So my question is:

Anyone had a different impression from Metropolitan NYMC? Am I wrong?

I will probably rank them, but I went to other places in OH, MA where the environment and the hospital were much better, but the fellowship placements not so great. So I don't know whether should I rank Metropolitan NYMC high just because of fellowships placements. Also I would like to scape from NYC. Although the city is great, I don't think it's a good place to live and work. IMHO, the violence, the high cost of living, scutwork and the nurses make NYC one of the worst places to match.

p.s. fellowship is very important to me.

Well it depends on how many interviews you had? In my opinion, the ranking process should be done on preference base. It seems to me that you are not really ready to deal with the scut work or violence or nurses in NYC. That will in turn effect ur LORs from PD and Attendings from the program. So Ohio might be a better choice.

Another way to look at is how many people fellowship matched. I would not look at the percentages when it comes to fellowships because of the limit number of spots.

But if fellowship is really important to you, then the bigger name helps.
