If you dont have much preference either way go with Emory half price. I wouldn't take WashU at sticker with such a good scholarship at a peer school. They are both strong regional schools located in decent markets, I think they will both give you about the same portability. But the facilities at WashU are nicer than Emory but that shouldn't be a deal breaker.

I think I am going to have a similar dilemma in my own situation, so I'll chime in with my thoughts. WashU is extremely valuable if you want to practice in the midwest, especially for the STL and Chicago markets. I think Emory is a tiny bit more portable, but I don't think it's significant, and obviously it's a better bet for the southern part of the US. Both campuses are beautiful, and it is my understanding that the professors and facilities are comparable and excellent. It really comes down to what your preference is. I think you should visit each and try to get a feel for them as best you can.

Bump? Bump?? Bump??? What kind of a reply do you expect to get?
Both schools are pretty similar with a slight advantage to WUSTL in terms of name recognition and facilities. Faculty is probably the same. Is that difference worth 60k? Probably not.

I got ~$85,000 from Wash U and about $60,000 from Emory. They're both regional schools but I'd rather live in warmer weather so I'm leaning pretty heavily in the direction of Emory. As far as your position, if you don't have a preference as to where you'll end up and you'll get a scholly from Emory I'd probably go Emory to save money.
