    I got into both TUCOM in CA and NV and I was just wondering if I have to go to a CA school to have a higher chance of getting into a CA residency. THanks!

    I think the bigger thing is what state you are a resident of, rather than what state you go to school in.

    Yeah, but also, rotating at places you may apply for residencies at gives you a better chance too. Therefore, going to CA schools leads to rotating at CA programs which leads to being known at those programs when it comes time to apply.

    and like you know how touro-nv is very new compare to touro-CA is it bad to go to a newer school? I really would like to go to the one in nv because I didn't really like the school in CA.

    I'm at a new school. You need to find out the specifics of that school. Try to get HONEST opinions from students there, preferably those in their second year who are probably starting to get a feel for how the clinical years are going to operate. Unfortunately, on SDN, you will mostly get glowing reviews because people like advertising/supporting their school. Regardless, wherever you go, if you work hard and succeed, the school being new shouldn't shut any doors for you as far as this DO school vs. that one.
