What schools do you think would offer the best year 3 and year 4 experiences? My point in going to podiatry school is to... become the best podiatrist I can after my training. A big portion of that will be the experiences you gain in year 3 and year 4. And if I am correct, residencies look into what kind of experience you gained as a 3rd and 4th year student when you are trying to get into a program. Not trying to start a war between which school is better blah blah blah just trying to set myself up for the best education that I can attain.
