HLS. Talking to current Stanford students was the most valuable part of the process for me. I'll break down what helped me make my decision for future people deciding
-quarter system seems like it sucks a big one (at least at S I can't comment about uchicago and others). Seems very stressful and I think I'd be able to perform better with fewer classes to focus on. This was probably the biggest complaint from S students.
my ultimate take away however was that they are very much peers and it really is based on personal preference
Good luck! The quarter system definitely has a lot of drawbacks. It has advantages too, but summer jobs and OCI get hit pretty hard and are pretty high on the importance scale. Congrats on making a reasoned, thoughtful choice about what fits you!
