Hi guys! I have just been accepted off the waitlist to NYITCOM but I have already been accepted to LECOM and I have paid the $2000 non-refundable deposit to LECOM. NYITCOM is also 2x the price but I preferred NYITCOM when I interviewed. I need some pro's and con's and help making my decision as I am completely stuck lol.

I choose a school double the price over lecom as well. Mid tier MD school for reference. I also choose DMU over LECOM over lecom, before I got into an MD. Lecom was my least fav interview. Money or happiness you choose

It wouldn't even be a question if it was DO vs MD, but they're both DO schools so I have no idea what to do, for reference I come from a low income family and all these deposits add up haha.

For the price difference, definitely LECOM. The difference isn't big enough for twice the price.

I wish I could help. I don't know the DO schools well enough to offer an opinion.
I'm sure @Goro or @Angus Avagadro will chime in!

I agree with my young colleague.
