  1. Pre-Medical
NSU vs. NYIT (Both DO)

NSU (Nova Southeastern University - Fort Lauderdale, FL)

Pros:
  • Close to home (mom can bring me food!)
  • Familiar to me, grew up in the area, I know people there (though not necessarily friends with those people)
  • Off campus housing is abundant
  • Rotations are around the area, can easily drive to
  • Sunny, though not a fan of the heat
  • Infrastructure, cleanliness
Cons:
  • Meh match list
  • I've heard curriculum is brutal (moreso than other med schools)
  • Random mandatory things (rural rotation, others I'm unaware of)... this con doesn't really bother me

NYIT (New York Institute of Technology - Old Westbury, NY)

Pros
  • I want to end up in the Northeast; they seem to have great connections
  • Pretty great match list, especially for the field I want to go into
  • I love NY and the Northeast - the weather, food, culture, people
  • Proximity to NYC (after exams woo)
  • Rotations in hospitals I potentially may want to match at
Cons:
  • Cost of living is absurd, though I would make it work
  • I've heard NYIT is more of a commuter school = less camaraderie. I really want a community, make friends.
  • Rotations are potentially scattered around NYC and commute time seems ridiculous (are they? someone please enlighten me)
Question: Are they both P/F?

Blessed to have options, but am really torn here. Quality of life is important to me, but so is reaching my end goal. Thanks for any input!
