    NSU KPCOM (Clearwater) vs. KCUMB (Kansas City)

    Hello everyone, Have multiple acceptances to DO programs, and narrowed it down to these two. I am a Florida resident. NSU's declining board scores, along with the fact that I was accepted to a new campus with very little known quantities is definitely concerning to me. However, I am a FL...

    Hi, I am about to start school at KCU-COM and I am feeling rather nervous before I start med school. I know I am a hard worker, adapt well if I need help and I can study for hours if needed.
