So, I'm starting this new thread, the only one I've seen that compares NSUCOM to KCOM is a short thread for 1999. With that said, I've been accepted to both schools, but I'm having a reallly hard time deciding where to go! NSUCOM +beach, weather etc. +rotation options +massive financial aid +huge university -faculty not as close to their students -class till 5 pm -cost of living -amount of distractions KCOM +really friendly environment +reputation +/- not much to do, but fewer distractions +rent is cheaper than my utilities bill - may have to move really far way for clinical years - vast nothingness of the midwest! - limited financial aid options - higher tuition ...on the side: at Kirksville, you're very close to Mark Twain's home town! what are your thoughts on these guys? also, has anyone heard about the NSUCOM research grant that pays for third and fourth year of medschool?
