I was speaking to a friend who wants to go DO but is concerned with The tuition. Here in Fl Nova is about 25k a year plus housing for a FL resident where as the The MD schools Gainsville and Tampa are only a fraction of the cost,around 3grand I think plus housing. Why is the DO tuition so high? Are they all private schools? has anyone broken down DO schools by tuition Lowest to highest? If this has been brought up before I apologize as the search feature is gone and I could not find anything.
