Want to get an idea of who is moving far away from their home to attend DO school.

Can you write your hometown and what DO school you will be attending?

We have a lot of people from California in my class. There are also people from Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Florida, Nebraska, Texas, etc. I moved up to Erie from Arkansas which was a 17 hour drive. One of my friends from California drove ~30 hours to get here.

Minnesota to Henderson, NV (Touro), about 1600-1700 miles!

In other words, from the Land of 10,000 Lakes to the Land of 10,000 Casinos :)

Montana to Virginia ~ 1,910 miles

But I've already moved from Minnesota (my "home") to Montana (~1000 miles) for grad school 4 years ago. I've been "far from home" for awhile now. It is hard at first (especially if you don't know anyone), but it gets easier after awhile. :) :)

Orlando to Davie, FL (Yeah NSU!!! Lots of us on here!)

Short drive (about 220 miles), but I would have driven to anywhere in the country to go to school!
