After being an onlooker for months, I've finally made an account here at SDN. Ok, let me set this up: I grew up in LA, went to school at UC San Diego, graduated last spring, still live in SD where I work full time and am in a serious relationship. All my friends and family live in CA. That being said, here is my predicament: I was accepted to both Touro-MI and Kirksville (after being accepted both places, I turned down other interview invites for financial and mental health reasons ). Location aside, I love Kirksville... more-so than touro-mi. I think the facilities are superior and the technology is admirable (I <3 technology). However, location is not a dismissable factor. Bay area, while distant from SoCal, is still driving-distance from home, and everyone I know. My sister is moving to SF and my two best friends go to school in NorCal. My struggle is that I would choose Kirksville if location weren't important, but it is, so I don't know what to do. I would much appreciate any advice, especially from kirksville or touro-mi students. Much thanks!
