Urgent! Need help on medical MS program selection

Postby sailingfish » Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:31 pm

Got the admissions from Wayne state univ. and Columiba univ.Both are accreditated.
Wayne is one of the oldest in medical physics which foucses intensively on radiation therapy. Program takes 20-24 months.

Columbia's program is new and just got accreditation in 2009. Program takes 16months.
Tuition is similar.

Which one is better, any suggestion ? Need to reply to the school by tomorrow.

Thanks a lot!!!!

having graduated from one of those programs recently, I can help you. is it too late? But you'll need to be more specific in regards to the types of questions you will have...

I have never heard about Wayne Univ, so I would choose Columbia with good world reputation.

No!

Never, ever let the so-called reputation of a school influence your decision. It is meaningless. So-called "better" schools are really only better at hiring high-profile faculty members. They are better only at marketing themselves.
