Programs that surprised you
Operative experience probably Northwell > NYU > Sinai = Einstein > Cornell = Columbia

Not sure where this is coming from. Cornell has 3 times the volume Columbia has. To drive it home, at the interview day they told us Columbia residents were going to start coming to the UES to operate (honestly a raw deal for Cornell imo). Pitched it as a reciprocal program with Cornell residents getting peds cases at Columbia

Also not clear to me if any of the Manhattan programs have better autonomy than Northwell, Einstein, RWJ, who benefit from isolated patient populations and not VIPs getting 3rd and 4th opinions. Just because you get crushed at NYU doesn't mean you get any autonomy at Langone. So hard with NYC programs to see the reality from what they parade on interview day

I'm a west coast resident with no skin in the game and I completely agree with this (with the potential exception of swapping Einstein and NYU). Northwell is a blue collar (barely) academic program where the focus is on OR. Doesn't make it a "top" program but the residents get their reps in (just like for pure operating Rush > Northwestern and Jefferson > Penn). It depends on what you're looking for. NYU, Cornell, Columbia are obviously bigger names with better research.
