I am confused about weather I should rank:

University of Illinois-Urbana Champigan higher or
West Suburban Hospital higher

As I have heard that UOI-UC is a university only by it's name but it's basically a community program. I am from Chicago so I want to give preference to the place as well but I also want to end up in a better hospital thinking about the future.

need some input-
Thanks

It is better to rank higher university hospitals, university affiliated, and community in that order. The importa thing is who issue your degree/tittle, it is better for you if it comes forma U, even if the hospital/program is more primary care/community oriented than an academic center.

@firstaid
I have an interview at Urbana Champagne IM in 2weeks. I will like to know how the interview runs if you don't mind telling.

As per your question, I guess you have already answered it. I'm from Chicago too but it's definitely 3rd on my list just because of its location.
