    Edinburgh has a better reputation for medicine. It is ranked higher in the UK and the world and also has a long very reputable history. It was the best medical school in the world in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Glasgow is PBL whereas Edinburgh is mixed so that might play a role in your choice as well.

    Overall though i would choose Edinburgh without a doubt mostly because Edinburgh is famous around the world for medicine (edinburgh grads founded 5 out of the 7 Ivy League medical schools and have discovered diseases like Bell's palsy, Addison's disease etc)

    Check the dates next time you reply to a thread, this one was asked 2 cycles ago.

    Also everything you said except for the course type is irrelevant for someone who is going to practice in the UK which will be almost everyone.
