    Hi, I was hoping to get help in picking between both schools. I need to make my choice by Monday. All feedback would be thankful.
    Touro:
    2+2 program
    100 class size
    Dual degree MPH available
    in Calfornia
    Tuition is 44k but they recommend to take a loan of 80k a year.
    Touro is about 6 hours from my home (CA).

    Midwestern (AZ):
    3 year school.
    150 class size.
    Tuition 53k but recommend a loan of 88k.
    5 hours from home.

    I plan to come back to California if I decide on Midwestern.
    Which school do you recommend and why?
    Thanks in advance.

    MWU increases its tuition 4%- 7% every year. Expect it to be around 56 K. Don't know if its same with touro.

    he's likely not coming back. but to answer your question, go with the cheaper school.

    I would avoid pharmacy if you want to work in California. The job market is terrible and getting worse each year. There are bunch of new schools that are about to graduate their first classes this year. Even if you go to school in California, there is a good chance you will be shut out of the job market indefinitely and be forced to move out of state to the middle of nowhere if you want to find work.

    There are other professions, i.e. computer programming, finance, accounting, engineering, etc. that offer far better job prospects, do not require you to move to the middle of nowhere, pay well, and do not require you to take out $200k+ in loans and spend another 4 years of your life in school.
