    AZCOM vs KCU

    Hello!! I am grateful to be accepted into 2 schools with amazing programs but I need help deciding between the two. Here's what I'm thinking and considering between the two schools: KCU + good research + much much cheaper than KCU (~100k cheaper) + good test scores + 100% match rate for the...

    AZCOM (Midwestern-AZ) vs RVUCOM-CO (Rocky Vista)

    Hi everybody! I'm having some trouble deciding between these two schools for the coming Fall. Some background: I'm originally from southern California and would ideally like to return there for residency. Both schools have similar solid board scores and match lists AZCOM/Midwestern Pros...

    I know this thread has been done before but I wanted to start another one up since the DO landscape seems to be rapidly changing year by year. I have been lucky enough to earn an acceptance from each branch of Midwestern and I wanted current and former students' takes on the pros and cons of...

    Midwestern Glendale Vs Western Pomona

    I have been trying to find a comparison of these two schools. I know Western has made some changes and have made massive improvements to the curriculum and board scores. AZCOM has had a dip in their board scores lately has a better location by far. Tuition is outrageous at AZCOM but living is...

    AZ Midwestern University MABS 2019-2020

    Hello Everyone, Has anyone here received an acceptance yet? I have my interview next week and I'm feeling nervous. I applied MD/DO and I didn't receive any interviews probably due to my low science GPA (3.2) but I'm really liking what I've seen about this program. Any advice for the...

    Seeking Advice for AZCOM vs. PCOM-GA [please help!]

    Hello there! I've been extremely fortunate to have been accepted to a number of DO schools. I have narrowed these down to just AZCOM and PCOM-GA based off location, curriculum, and other preferences. However, now I'm facing an increasing struggle to decide between the two and would really...

    AZCOM vs UNECOM vs KCU-Joplin

    Hello! I have been having a ridiculously hard time choosing between these three schools. I am an international student, hence will be paying out-of-state for all three schools. KCU-Joplin is the cheapest (and I got a $5000 scholarship for the first year), but the location is kinda meh and I'm...

    AZCOM vs RVUCOM vs ATSoma

    Hey guys, I could use some help. So far I have been accepted into the above mentioned schools and I am personally leaning towards ATSoma because I think I fit really well into the school. I could use some more insight/help/opinions on what to really consider when picking the schools? I am from...

    Upcoming AZCOM interview

    So I have an interview at AZCOM on Oct 16th. I have already booked my non-refundable plane ticket to Phoenix. I'm getting a bit tight with money though, and I'm trying to decide if I should still go to the interview (I haven't booked the hotel or rental car, and combined with food this will be...

    Hi all, I was recently accepted to ACOM, and I have an upcoming interview at AZCOM in October. I've been looking at prices for flights, rental cars, and hotels and freaking out a bit at the cost. I'm trying to decide if it's worth it to go to the interview. Overall it'll cost me at least $500...

    So, I was just accepted off the waitlist at NYIT-Arkansas (Arkansas COM) and was wondering if I should stick with the school I had originally decided on, AZCOM, or should go with this newer program. The school is brand new, with amazing equipment and on a busy campus as well (which I think is a...

    AZCOM vs Touro-Harlem

    Hi guys!! I'm struggling to make a decision here. These are my current pros and cons list: AZCOM Pros: More established Higher avg COMLEX 1 (by 10pts) Consistently high COMLEX pass rates Research seems available to anyone who wants it Rotations seem good. I like you have an option for...

    AZCOM vs DMU

    Hello SDN Community! I've been lurking around the forums for quite some time now and it has really helped me with my journey towards becoming a doctor. So thank you all! I had the fortune of being accepted to four medical schools (AZCOM, DMU, TUN, and LECOM Bradenton) and I have narrowed it down...

    AZCOM vs. KCU-Joplin

    I know these threads can be common but I have yet to see one that discusses the Joplin Campus Specifically. Both schools are solid academically as far as I can tell, so that wont be listed as a pro or con. Here is how the situation plays out for me: I am from California so AZCOM has the...

    Hey guys, I was accepted to this program today and wanted to start a thread for the 2017 cohort so we can talk about details, concerns, etc. Any feedback from anyone who has completed this program would be greatly appreciated. They increased the class size to 150 apparently, so that means more...

    Touro-CA vs AZCOM

    Title says it all. Thoughts on Touro: I am from Norcal and would love to stay close to home. A lot of people from my university went to Touro-CA and seem to like it there. However, a lot of people say Touro is a terrible program on SDN. Thoughts on AZCOM: Overall it seemed like a strong...

    Which School... (AZCOM vs. Nova)

    Hi everyone! I'm pretty excited that my cycle is basically over. I have acceptances from AZCOM, Nova, DMU, and LECOM-B and I'm struggling to make a decision. LECOM-B was out right away; and, I think DMU is out too just because I did not like it very much during my interview. Which leaves...

    Feeling torn. Currently accepted to both MUCOM and TUNCOM, and have scheduled an interview in 2 weeks at AZCOM. Some important and attractive changes to TUNCOM coming up: the new dean (formerly of KCUMB) seems to be implementing some great new programs: all of 4th year will be electives...

    AZCOM or CCOM Rotations/Matching

    Hello everyone. I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to both of these institutions, and I had a small list of questions. 1. Board Preparation/USMLE: How active is each school's administration and curriculum in preparing students for the boards. 2. Match Lists and Future: I am from...

    California Northstate College of Medicine vs TUCOMCA vs AZCOM

    Accepted to these 3 schools. AZCOM vs TUCOMCA seems to be discussed quite a bit on SDN so I'll save that issue, but what about CNUCOM? I am skeptical of CNUCOM because it is so new and has not gained full accreditation yet for clinical rotations (if I recall correct). But if it does gain...

    I feel like I've won the lottery here. I have been fortunate enough to earn an acceptance to both schools and I'm very grateful for that. However, I'm having a real hard time deciding on which school to attend. I'm pretty set on specializing, hopefully in Cardiology. Is one school better over...

    I know this has a thread for last year, I read through it, but I wanted to revive the conversation! I have been accepted to both AZCOM and RVUCOM, and initially I thought that I was going to go AZCOM for sure because it is a more established school with great facilities, but after going to RVU...
