Hey guys! Sam Houston State University will be opening up a new D.O program "sam houston state university college of osteopathic medicine" in 2020. Do you think they will waive the tuition fee? I know UT Rio Grande and Austin's Med schools gave their med students free tuition for the first class. What do you guys think? (and I am from TX graduating in 2020). Here's the link below. Thanks in advance!!!

Private? TCU and UIWSOM both private, now this? Slow down with the new schools. Texas just got TTEP, RGV, UIWSOM, Dell, coming soon TCU and Sam Houston...

At least they're funneling resources to create residencies as well!

A new, unproven osteopathic medical school waiving first year's tuition?

Where's that gif of the 3 guys throwing their heads back and laughing when you need it?

Not to mention that means a school would have 100% overhead and a fraction of that in revenue for the first year. Would you go work for a company that doesn't pay you the first year? It's a similar concept. Wouldn't count on it.

But then tuition for years 2-4 are around 50k/year right? No thanks. One of the great things about Texas public med schools is that low capped tuition. TCU ends up costing $100k more than TCOM or any other public med school even with that year of free tuition.

For contrast, TCOM costs $11K for the first year tuition, in the same city and just $8k tuition 2nd year tuition.
