I had recently interviewed at Chicago COM and Ohio University COM and was accepted to both. I really liked both schools and am having difficulty deciding on which to attend. Any information regarding either of the schools is greatly appreciated. Which school would better prepare me to enter into a competitive residency like surgery or ophthalmology. Some things I've already considered: 1) The board scores and GPA for both of these schools are in the same general range, and I don't want to base my decision solely on the school's board scores for accepted students from last year. 2) OU COM does require you to practice in Ohio for five years after graduation, but I am from Ohio, so I am exempt from that requirement. 3) Geographically, I don't have any preference between Ohio and Chicago, as it's a short flight from either school to my home in Cleveland. Thanks for your help !!
