    Pros

    Very nice housing at Rice University and keeps the students well knitted and interactive

    Cons

    Had very little leeway as to what project you want to carry out during the summer, most students winded up doing wet lab work and not necessarily clinic stuff

    Pros

    Medical Insurance is free, dental and vision are dirt cheap. Research facilities are top notch.

    Cons

    Some of the research infrastructure is archaic and run by people who should have retired long ago. Research protocols are entered and edited using Lotus Notes - unbelievable.
