    I now have two choices of medical schools (Outside UK) and I'm not sure which one will suit me better.

    One uses Problem based learning (PBL), with fewer lectures but more small group teaching in tutorials.

    The other one uses integrated system based learning, which emphasizes on early clinical contact, but it also has PBL elements.

    I really like the second one, because it seems that I can have a firm basis of medicine in my first two years. I spoke to the professor and he said as I promote to year 3/4 there will be a lot of PBLs and tutorials.

    The second one gave me a very bad impression in my interviews, they only asked very general question and they were slightly rude. But for the first one I really enjoyed it and I just love the uni. But the first one is better in terms of reputation. Which one should I choose?

    Personally I would go with the one that has being running their current curriculum the longest - in theory they will have less problems, as will have already ironed them out.

    Without knowing which two Overseas schools you are talking about makes it difficult to say any more than that.
