I was accepted to both PCOM and CCOM and am trying to decide between them. CCOM students tend to match at both MD and DO hospitals. In addition, they also match at a lot of schools outside of IL. However, PCOM students seem to predominately match at DO schools and remain in PA to do their residencies. Is PCOM's residency match list as strong as CCOM's? I was wondering if anyone could provide an insight into the residency match because it could help me with my decision.

There is a huge amount of self-selection involved in any match lists. If you do decently in school and on the boards, you'll have many doors open for you.
