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.

Which school did you prefer?

Sent from my SM-G965U using SDN mobile

honestly, I did not have a strong preference for one over the other. But I have recently talked with Marian's financial aid and they said that the scholarship is given to anyone who wants it/meets the criteria (ie Indiana resident/etc). So it would make Marian 15k cheaper per year and if I were to do IM assuming I match residency into a county that meets the high needs category the time commitment starts then. Also if I were to match into another residency I would just have to pay it back.
