Hi, I was wondering if I could have some opinions on this. I need to make a decision ASAP. I have been accepted at both schools and they are my top choices. I am from NY/NJ and I'm very familiar with NYCOM's campus, as I went to their undergrad-affiliated school. NYCOM: Good - apparently, students are very satisfied with rotations, wouldn't have to move across country, wouldn't have to uproot everything I have going here (flying lessons, dance lessons, during what ounce of free time I have left, etc.), rotations will be in the location I wish to do my residency Bad - during OMM, students are required to wear bathing suits in class and I don't feel comfortable doing so, the students are very competitive, administration is not very good, many students seem apathetic or slightly dissatisfied with the school for the first two years Des Moines: Good - students are amazing and cooperative, OMM department is second to none, students are very satisfied with the school, great learning aids such as Harvey and SPAL, great didactics in general Bad - never lived so far away from home and don't want to get home sick, I want to wind up back in NY eventually, and NYCOM's rotations may be better for that I hope I haven't insulted anyone with this list. Please don't take it personally. If anyone disagrees with me, I welcome your opinions as well. I appreciate any advice anyone can give me on this decision.
