    I have been extremely fortunate so far, but I have a question. I currently have interviews scheduled for LMU-DCOM, WVSOM, ACOM, and VCOM-VA in the next few weeks. I am a TN resident and as of now, if accepted LMU and VCOM would be my top two choices. Since I am OOS, the tuition for WVSOM is pretty high. I am VERY limited on funds currently, and I'm wondering if it would be beneficial for me to cancel my interview at WVSOM? Or is this school worth attending (if accepted) over the others (and LECOM-B which I already interviewed at)? I hate to turn down any interview but I really am lacking on money. Should I just suck it up and attend every interview I can? Thanks for your thoughts and advice!

    From what I hear it goes like VCOM-VA = WVSOM (although they have different qualities that make them good) > ACOM > LMU.

    Thanks! I've actually heard similar things, I just can't decide whether to keep the interview or not, and if I cancel I want to give them enough time to invite someone else.

    I think you can afford to blow off WVCOM. But do not blow any interviews!

    Why don't you reschedule it for later in the year?
