I'm from St. Louis so that definitely has something to do with the fact that KCOM is my first choice. My question is why do you hardly see KCOM's name coming up in this forum. Being the first Osteopathic medical school it appears to me that KCOM is the flag ship for osteopathic schools and after my visit there last weekend that is the attitude that I got from the school. KCOM stands out from many of the other schools in many ways, including pass percentages of the COMLEX, website, and research conducted by faculty. I realize that the small town of Kirksville is not appealing to everyone, however I would've thought to see KCOM's name pop up a little more often. Does anyone have a comment on this?
