If I were doing it over again, I would decide based on, in approximate order,
1. Pass/Fail Grading
4. Amount of PBL (garbage learning format, at least what I've seen - good in theory, never well executed) and amount of mandatory stuff in general.
I suppose the match lists might be important, but I don't have a grasp on how much school affects residency placements and how much of that is self-selection.
Go where you think you'd be happy - of those choices, I'd probably go with Baylor based on location and reputation alone. I'd be tempted by UChicago though - Chicago is a very, very fun city when you're in your 20's. It's just too cold for my tastes.
