I have been fortunate enough to be accepted to both ACOM and LECOM-E, and I am having trouble deciding which school to choose. Any insight/warnings would be appreciated!

LECOM-E

PROS

Less Expensive
More established/connections
~98% comlex rates
~100% GME match rate

CONS
Seems Like strict dress code
Further from home
Have heard issue about rotation scheduling(I think this was for the Bradenton campus but not sure)

ACOM

PROS

Closer to home
seems very active in community
Rural-ish area similar to where I am from
~96% comlex pass rate
100% Residency Match Rate
Less strict dress code

CONS
60% Mandatory Attendance
Higher Cost
Less Established

I'm 90% sure ACOM removed their mandatory attendance requirement for the future. It is at least gone for the spring and I do not think it will come back.
