Benefits of a London med school?
Do people think there is any great benefit on studying medicine in London, as opposed to any other good uni (eg Bristol, Birmingham, etc)? Once you have qualified, does where you studied make any further impact on your future career?
I have been accepted to Birmingham GEP, and have withdrawn my applications to Liverpool and Warwick, but I'm not sure about whether or not to go for the interview (if I'm invited) at Kings College London. I really loved Birmingham when I went to see it, but I'm sure I will like Kings as well. Birmingham is closer to home for me, and will be a lot cheaper to live in than London, but I don't want to dismiss KCL because I'm sure London would be amazing to live and study in.
What do people think about the potential benefits of studying in London?Birmingham GEC 2007

Shouldn't do (hopefully) because the GMC ensure that all medical schools are of a high standard anyway. Really depends what course suits you, the lifestyle you're seeking, what location you prefer etc. Incidently, I did my MSc at King's, and most my friends there were med students. They all seemed to love it, and the teaching hospitals (Guy's and St. Thomas') are some of the best in the world. London is good fun too. But I chose against London for medicine to be by the sea, and because London just sucks every penny outta your wallet!
