    Cincinnati vs. Colorado vs. MCW

    Cincinnati Pros: $: that sweet IS tuition after 1st year (or immediately if you choose to live in Northern KY) Extended family (born and raised in CA) Loved the faculty Super high STEP scores (avg 241 last class for STEP 1) Cons: Not much to do in Cincy imo not a whole lot of CA matching...

    Hi guys, First, thank you for taking the time to read this mess. I'm in a bit of a bind because I just learned that I was accepted into NSU, so now I have to make a decision between one of these two schools. I was hoping to get some advice since NSU's deposit is due in 2 weeks. I'd really...

    ACOM vs. CUSOM

    Hey, guys! So I know this thread has been done already in the past, but in light of the new cycle, I thought I'd start a new one so that I'm not spamming the people from the old one. I recently got into both schools, and they both have some great things going on for them, but they're so similar...

    Campbell University SOM Interview Coordination

    Hey, I was hoping to make a thread specific for coordinating some travel expenses together for hotels, transportation, etc. I guess I'll start off by noting that I am interviewing on 8/14/2018, and am interested in splitting a room with one or more people to minimize costs.

    KCU-Joplin VS CUSOM

    I've been accepted to KCU-Joplin, but I live in Florida and got an II from CUSOM. CUSOM is closer to home (not by a lot, but still drive-able), so that's what's making me consider it. Everything I read online is telling me KCU is better than CUSOM. Is this correct? Any reasons I should consider...
