Hey guys so I got into both KCU and Marian. I was hoping for some feedback from either student or alumni at either schools. I liked both campuses. A little bit about me I am from Indianapolis and I am not terribly certain in what I would like to do a residency in currently but I am interested in Anesthesia, IM, GS, orthopedics, Psych, and EM. I have looked at the most recent residency matches for both schools and KCU does seem to match better. I attached a pro and con list that I have come up with and the match data provided on SDN for KCU and Marian.
|Pros||Cons||neutral/same for both schools||Pros||Cons|
|old school||ranked with Joplin making class size 450||Graded||class size 150||not as old|
|Own residencies||will need to likely move for rotations||COMLEX Scores||family+friends live here||no residencies|
|new sim center||8+ hr drive home||Regular-priced tuition||rotations within 60 mi of Indianapolis||catholic school|
|Better match||research quantity/quality||Primary Care Shortage Area Scholarship-possible 15k scholarship, have to do IM or psych||The scholarship comes with 4-year commitment or payback|
