Given the choice, which of these schools would you choose to attend?
I can choose none right? I choose none!
then whats your first choice? just nice to see.
nevermind, the the poll is fixed now. so I will vote.
dude/dudette make this a Private Poll!!!!!!
Are you insane!!!
I don't think I can edit the poll itself.
No big deal. I don't think most people will care.
MSU-COM has the best ranking.
CCOM & PCOM along with MSU-COM have the best established clinicals and residencies.
Those 3 would be your best bet.
Other highly ranked schools with well established clinicals and residencies that were not included are OSU-COM & TCOM.
MSU was okay
These are opinions not facts, and from a narrow view I must add. There are no "rankings", "best" is an opinion and again, from a narrow view, and "established" means nothing when a residency position can loose its funding or not fill from year to year.
I would agree that a school that has a residency program has an obvious advantage for its students getting into those positions, but that is all.
DMU!!! But I am VERY biased. Go CYCLONES!!!!
i'll pm you.
Um, yeah there are --> US NEWS.
"Established" means these positions don't lose their funding over a number of years. This is something that can be objectively evaluated.
Wow how did I know you would say US news, in fact I almost typed it to avoid having to make another post but yeah well okay so maybe some of those schools have the most students going into primary care according to US news, great.
OSUdoc, TCOM doesn't have established rotation sites.
Weaknesses as state by TCOMs self evaluation/ strategic plan for 2001-2005
-the small cadre of the clinical faculty, with several clinical departments lacking "critical mass" for sustaining the diversity of clinical teaching, researcha nd servive that is demanding of a TX medical school resulint in a unacceptably low faculty to student teaching ratio.
-located in a county that does not have a coordinated regional health care system.
-dependence on numerous decentralized communigy hospitals for clinical training iwth difficulty in controlling the quality of clinical education.
-relatively small medical practice planwith revenues based upon primary care services, making the instutution especially vulnerable to the vicissitudes of rapidly changing health care systems and reimbursement schedules.
-a development/advancement capability that has been slow to raise private, restricted and unrestricted funds with which to augment other fund sources
Just for clarification before this degrades into a my school is better than your school pissing contest or a bash whatever school didn't let you in of the same, I believe any of those schools can give you a fine medical education or they wouldn't be accredited and people wouldn't attend. My intent was simply to point out that opinions shouldn't be portrayed as fact, especially when they are baseless. And that, in itself, is my opinion
TCOM or WVSOM, whichever one I eventually end up at.
I vote for TCOM or Western/COMP.
did you only list the schools that you applied to? Is this another self centered plot to get your Ranking.
TUCOM - TWICE
LECOM - TWICE
Man, if you are going to have a DO school poll at least include them all or give a rationale for the ones you chose to omit.
I am going with OUCOM since MSU costs so much. Also, I felt a bit more 'included' at OU. I just liked the area and people I met more at OU than at MSU. I'm sure all schools are good schools, though. You get out what you put in.
ahem. there are two TUCOMs and two LECOMs.
Hey, if you guys want an entire poll with every school, go ahead and make one. I was just curious about these schools because they are on my mind. I think I am free to make a poll with whatever schools I want.
I purposely put "other" for people who wanted to show support for another school. I am fine with that.
And this is not a way to show ranking. Again, I just wanted to see how popular some of these schools (that I was curious about) were.
the whole point of this thread..is not to find out which DO school is the best..its to see which DO school is "your first choice".. 2 entirely different things..one implies which school is the best academically/clinically watever which i believe is impossible to rank accurately..and the other implies which school best suits the student the best..
I would suggest you look at what schools are out there before you call me a "dumb a$$!"
I do NOT care about ranking. I have never ever posted on this forum about rankings. I only care about schools that might be my "FIT." That is my way of ranking a school.
So please know your info before you jump to insult some one
DMU hands down...
2nd That...It is hard to say that a school founded in the 1800's is up and coming, but DMU has positioned itself for a bright future.
You dissed me first by not putting UNECOM. Plus it was early in the morning. That is usually when I am a Dumb A$$. Mainly due to a mutation on Chromosome 6 that makes me like that. My genetisist said not to apologies for this disability.
I have a feeling a poll asking "what school do you go to" would have very similar results...
There is no need to be insulting. And the TUCOM and LECOM listed twice are because they are DIFFERENT campuses.
You're right. The rankings came out before TCOM's hospital closed. I'm not sure if that makes it less of a school or not. I'd say the massive amount of research they do at their school counts for something. They have residencies at Plaza still, and do rotations in some of the larger hospitals in Ft. Worth, but who knows?
The only people that complain about the US News rankings are those whose schools are not ranked.
If the rankings were so flawed, then they wouldn't exist.
why isn't KCUMB listed? If you are going to rank the DO schools wrt student preferences, it might be interesting to provide a complete list?
this has already been discussed and your question has been answered, maybe you should read the previous posts.
Just showing some love for PCSOM...
Right, and if you are flawed then you don't exist. Excellent
Having that badge doesn't make you right
He exists since he is perfect.
can you explain?
The animosity between Nate and OSUdoc08 is rediculous! Why do any of us need tv or books when we have entertainment like this on sdn.
I'll get the popcorn! Who are we watching again?
Not sure......I heard it has something to do with Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise.....
I don't understand DMU's popularity. Could you explain why so many people love the school?
I didn't even fill out the secondary despite numerous prompts from the adcom. But I suppose they send those prompts to every one. I am considering filling it out even though the class is probably close to being filled by now.
hehe. So who's the tall blonde with legs up to her ears, in this movie and who's the short, cradle robber? (I actually heard Tom's contract states that no actor is allowed to look him directly into his eyes because he is so insecure).
Sorry this is off topic. Back to osteopathic discussions.
