Got the call yesterday that KCUMB has moved me off of the waiting list and accepted me....I have already paid my deposit to Debusk and I love the school...KCUMB has a great rep though...I am kinda in limbo now and not sure what to do. anyone have any suggestions.
I was accepted into both programs also. KCUMB is my "state" Osteopathic Medical School.... I am from KS. It is only 2 hours from home and DCOM is 12 hours (Husband is staying at home for the first year). KCUMB simply wasn't for me. I HATED the location of the school (I heard some of the students call the 7/11 across the street the stab n go). KCUMB is an established institution, but I believe DCOM is going great places. A majority of KCUMB students stay in the KC metro area so if rural medicine is what you want, KCUMB may not be your school. Over all the size of the class, the fact that they lock all the buildings at midnight, the atmosphere, and the facilities didnt meet my needs as much as DCOM did. It was a tough decision but I am happy I chose DCOM. Good Luck with your decision.
