    Fair point.

    But suppose you don't care where you live...

    Which would you choose?

    Does anyone feel that one school is better than the other? Reasons?

    Also, does anyone know where I can find recent COMLEX passage statistics?

    I don't know anything about Western Comp, but NYCOM does leave a lot to be desired. The Dean is pretty much trying to change a lot of things and swears its going to be good but who knows. Also with the new system based approach the second yrs are going to be the first people to take the boards under this system and hopefully they'll do good. That being said really take into account where u'll be happy living for 4 yrs b/c thats huge, and if Western Comp has better stats then NYCOM go there
