If it were up to me, I would choose Chicago.
1) Pre-Med anywhere is competetive, but did u ever see Cornell pre-meds (ooouch). Their are rumours that they ripped others notes to get an advantage in grade. Chicago has no rumours like that, but note to you, pre-medicine in competive everywhere, and you need a location where people work together, not kill each other-> I though Chicago students did that when I visited.
2) Location....Medical Experience..... Chicago has about 5 med schools. Ithaca has none. BTW, Cornell Medi school is in NYC if you are interested. If you want to volunteer or have research experience, Chicago is your best bet.
3) Chicago offers a much varied educationm then Cornell, what medical schools look for. Plus classes are smaller, Cornell I believe has one of the biggest pre-med programs in the country. Pre-med you need alot of attention from professors, Chicago professors are overall there for you better than Cornell professors.
4) If you are looking for a party life as a pre-med forget it! Anywhere you go, you have to study your ass of... Both schools have excellent percentage f pre-meds who go to American Med schools. Best of luck!
