i'm a 3rd year so i haven't been on campus or know about all the recent events regarding the administration. what i do know is that the clinical rotations office has been restructured and is becoming more strict about where and how we set up our clinical rotations. (more paperwork and they seem to be discouraging rotations with individual preceptors as opposed to hospital based rotations). secondly, just this past month, they fired one of our worst professors (which is good), but one of our best professors left COMP (a huge loss). Two new board members replaced the ones that had resigned. COMP is still looking for a permanent Dean. Finally, the potential merger with Chapman College in Orange County was called off.
I would have to say that i would do everything the same if i had to do it over again. you will find that all the drama with professors, administration, classes, etc. is present at all of the DO schools. your experience is what you make of it. i had a blast living in SoCal (i'm a native NY'ker) and met some great classmates. I have to say that, in general, COMP students stick together and support each other.
i do have one opinion about chosing a medical school. don't go to a school that has too many students in the class. i felt like 170 student in my class was too much, but other schools have upto 300. it may mean that you don't get as much small group work, it may mean you have to scrap for things to do in anatomy class, and it may mean you won't have as much time to focus and learn OMM properly...something to keep in mind
Sadly....JL has left
