I am not too knowledgeable as to what factors go into successfully matching into one's residency of choice. I have heard some people say that it doesn't matter what school you go to as long as you are a good student. So that leads me to the question. How big of a factor does attending a particular medical school have on successful residency matching? The reason why I am asking is because I am having a hard time deciding between 2 schools. I have been accepted to both KCOM and SOMA. I really like both schools. KCOM is tried and true with a long history and solid foundation. SOMA is exciting and new with potential to be groundbreaking. One thing that concerns me with SOMA is that it is such a new school and I am not sure how strong it is in matching students to the residency they want. It would be great if I can get some thoughts and opinions regarding this matter. Thanks.
