Exactly my predicament. I've been going to these chats hoping they would give me some hope with this supposed new focus but they're not doing it. Externships/Clinics at Columbia dwarf Chicago. But I've heard nothing but good things about UChi's professors and mixed things about Columbia.
This is so true. I'm sort of weighing opportunities vs. experience and education. I'm big on experience and education. I'm a huge nerd and am looking at perhaps teaching someday. So, I want to go to a school with a top notch educational experience. But I also want a kickin' PI job with an international focus when I graduate so...I don't know.
Not to try and dissuade you from Chicago, but NYU is the best T6 for PI.
