Hi, is at soma (az) better than lucom? it is 58k vs like 47k.

and i know azcom is the best but is the difference between it and at soma worth the 52k price difference?

i guess what is most important to me is ability to match into competitive specialties. thank you!

just bumping this bc i have to submit a deposit by dec 14th, any input is appreciated
LUCOM is not at all respected to the level of SOMA or AZCOM. It has been said that SOMA is very heavy handed about primary care while AZCOM does not force primary care in the same way. I truly believe AZCOM is your best bet. Even though it's expensive, it's going to open the most doors and help you match where you want to match, where you'll then make plenty of money to pay back the extra loans.

I have family that graduated from AZCOM this year, 500k in debt. I just do not see how the education they provide is worth the price
