The impression im getting so far is that rcsi will look after you a little better but ucd have better facilities.
rcsi have smaller classes but vincents would suit me better in terms of commute.
rcsi seem to do more with the usmle in the way of supporting students but im not sure if I'll even end up sitting the test so its probably not the best point to make the decision on.
The other difference is the fee although if I think that there is a defo advantage to studying in surgeons it won't bother me too much.
Its probably irrelevant in reality but I wasn't exactly over the moon to hear that rcsi are hawking irish medical degrees over in bahrain without the correct amount of clinical experience.
