    I was wondering if some current students could share their experiences on the CCOM test schedule? I know that they have a lot of tests very often, and that appears to work out really nicely to keep students on top of everything. I was just wondering if the weekly tests are very manageable because they more focused material than one giant test, or is it still really difficult because the minutia is tested also?

    I was talking to a professor I know at the Indiana University School of Medicine today, and he was telling me great things about this school and the opportunities it can provide to us later in life. He pretty much solidified my decision to matriculate here. Now, I just need to put down that deposit. It's just soooooo hard to let go of $1,000 - well worth it, though!!!!!! :D

    Very quiet! I have been checking it every day and I see nothing. I cannot wait to start! It feels so weird that its 8 months away. Just so far! I want to be doing something now, like get paper work or order books/supplies, ext. But we are just waiting.



    Where are you guys from? What are your plans for housing?

    Well, i'm from the area. With the tuition at $50,000 I'd be a fool not to stay with my parents for the first two years as unappealing as it sounds. I will most likely wind up at my girlfriend's place most nights because she already lives in Downers Grove though.

    I am from Chicago, but will be looking for an apartment. Either a Studio or if I can find a roommate who I get along with and we are similar, then I would deft opt for a roomie. I never had one before, so I guess I have some requirements? lol It be great to have someone who is in all your classes and going through the same thing as you.

    I am very chill and down to earth, but I take school very seriously. I want someone who is studious, wont invite random people over and will actually let me sleep. At the same time, someone that would be ok with smoking hookah, having a few friends over for a few beers (not parties) every once in a GREAT while.

    On my interview day we saw the normal anatomy lab that students use and that looked brand new. What will the new building house?

    yea I kept my MD apps still out. If i get into Harvard Med (I did not even apply) I will still choose CCOM. Its my overall top choice between MD and DO. I just figured one MD ii would be nice to see the contrast between MD and DO interviews.
