    Urgent: ATSU-KCOM vs. CCOM

    I need help deciding which school to pay my deposit to (by this week haha). I would chose CCOM in a heartbeat if it weren’t so expensive, but it might be worth it if CCOM could ultimately help me match into a more competitive residency. KCOM PROS -lower tuition and rent -oldest DO school...

    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 University vs. Des Moines University

    I'm having great difficulty deciding between these two osteopathic colleges. I've seen lots of threads on this specific topic, but none of them have helped me decide. I enjoyed the interview I had at both, and I really like the area that both schools are located. For me, the most important...

    Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine / CCOM / MABS

    Hello. I was accepted recently to MABS program with an MCAT of 500. However, their guaranteed interview requires 504 MCAT. I could put good effort during MABS and that could get me an interview. But I am wondering if its worth it. Or should I just go for a less risky program (LECOM/VCOM)...

    I have already been accepted to PCOM (Philly campus) but was offered an II to CCOM. How do the clinical rotations of these two schools compare? Is there any significant reason why CCOM would be much better to warrant paying almost 20k more a year in tuition? Also which school would potentially...

    Re-Apply during or after post-bacc/Masters

    Hey people, This shouldn't be a hard question to answer, but I'm hesitant to ask a certain school this question in case they look down upon me applying to other schools afterwards. Currently, I am sitting on a waitlist to ACOM and waiting to hear back from LECOM-Seton Hill. I am thinking of...

    CCOM, AZCOM: more info needed

    hey guys, I received a secondary from CCOM but for their first question, I am just struggling to find more information about their program and specifics on their websites. For current students/previous applicants, is there more you can tell me about that school that is not on their websites?

    DMU vs CCOM

    Hey All, I know this has been addressed to some degree or another in the past, but I have what I feel is a somewhat unique situation with regards to this decision since I am an Air Force HPSP student (i.e. tuition is irrelevant). I have acceptances to both CCOM and DMU, and am having an...

    NYCOM vs. CCOM

    Helloo! I've been waitlisted at NYCOM for a few months now, but I'm contemplating sending a LOI to them. I know submitting a LOI doesn't mean I'll get in, but I want to stick to my word if NYCOM does end up accepting me, and for this reason, I want to think about which one would be right for...

    CCOM reasonably priced housing?

    Starting at CCOM in the fall and didn't get what I wanted with the on campus housing application. Can someone tell me what's a good area (reasonably priced) to look for a 1 bedroom apartment? Much appreciated

    I know there have been other threads, but none within the past year or so. I have acceptances to both schools and I'm really having a hard time deciding. I initially got 4 DO offers and was ready to assume that as my future, but then I got one MD offer, that I didn't really consider getting at...

    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...

    Opportunities for International rotations at CCOM?

    Can anyone attending Midwestern CCOM shed some light on 4th year rotations abroad? When I interviewed at the school, they mentioned that that was an option but my interviewers didn't seem to know too much about it. I understand that there are service trips done during the summer before the...

    MSUCOM (w/ scholarship) v. CCOM

    Was wondering if anybody had an opinion on which direction to go? I'm a CA resident and here are my thoughts! MSUCOM Pros: Great interview day, felt awesome about the faculty that I met, and there seemed to be a great sense of camaraderie with the few students on the panel, but I have to take...
