    Hey guys, I'm trying to decide between these two schools. Honestly imo, they are pretty equal in all categories besides location with Nova being in Florida and ACOM being in Alabama. As a Florida resident, I would like to stay here and that is Nova's most attractive attribute to me. But I also felt that the vibe at ACOM was much more warm and welcoming, which could lend to a more conducive learning environment. In the future, I plan to do my residency and practice in Florida.

      I don't think either school will limit your ability to match in Florida. However, I have heard concern from other members of SDN as well as a student at Nova that not everything is as nice as it looks. Including the number of transitional years matched this year, the siphoning of resources to another branch campus as well as the MD students getting favored. But this is just what I have heard from word of mouth, I have nothing against Nova

        elaborate?
        I just started at ACOM and I know it’s early but I’ve had a good experience so far. Medical school is hard no matter where you go, they give you what you need to succeed but ultimately it’s up to you to find out what works in regards to studying and to have the discipline to follow through with it.

          Which school did you decide? I just submitted my app to ACOM. I am a bit nervous. I have a science gpa of 3.69, but my overall is 3.4
