Frankly it’s a toss up for me between Toledo and EVMS, but one thing I liked about Toledo is that they give u instate classification after one year. Ohio has, to my knowledge, 6 MD schools, and so OH is a good state to be in state for. EVMS does not do this.
I would have applied to Cincy had I not gotten into Toledo, and I withdrew my Cincy app once I’d gotten into Toledo for several reasons— first, the guaranteed interview is only after* you graduate the program, meaning you would take an additional year off, which I didn’t want to do. If I had been willing to take an additional year off tho, I would definitely have gone with Cincy. Cincy publishes the rates of med school acceptances on their site openly, and I believe this or last year they had approx 56% (don’t quote me) get into a med school within the year. Toledo has a higher rate of within-the-year matriculation both to their own MD school and outside.
Both Toledo and EVMS are solid, solid choices and tbh I’m still deciding between the two. But I will almost definitely be attending Toledo, mostly bc money, small class size, mentorship with past MSBS-now-M1 class, and mandatory research participation.
Also, idk if this is cause for concern, but now that I think about it, the EVMS MM SDN page mentions that approx the top 50% of the MM class gets into EVMS MD. At Toledo, they have come close to taking the whole class before. Just my two cents after lots of research on the SDN page for both EVMS and Toledo
highly highly recommend checking out both SDN pages! Happy to answer more qs/PM about anything if needed.
Also to clarify, I would still have been 100% happy going to EVMS if Toledo has rejected me.
