    I've pretty much narrowed down my choices to NYCOM or TUCOM and am trying to get as much info as I can on both schools?

    I'm particularly interested in how the curriculum is structured the first two years and how the students feel about the schools -are the classes systems-based with problem-based learning or standard subject based?

    Also, TUCOM students, I heard that it's not pass/fail there but grades based - how do you all feel about that? Has it made the class atmosphere more competitive? I've also heard about TUCOM's affiliation with Kaiser - what does that mean for rotations for 3rd and 4th year students? Are any of you having difficulties getting rotations in hospitals vs. private offices?

    I'd appreciate any and all info/advice you can give. I'm really torn because I really liked both schools. HELP!
