    I am in to both MD and DO schools. CCOM,AZCOM, Wright State, and GWU.I am still waiting to hear from 10 schools OUR (wife& 2 kids(5 month old and a 3.5 year old.)best support structures are in DC and Chicago.Cheapest schools are in ohio. GW is a great school but expensive and i love the curriculum . who knew too many acceptances coul be a bad thing? I am willing to wait and see what happens w/financial aid. My wife is stressed out and so am I. I am not the 22 yeqar old who can pick up at the last minute and go. She is not willing to do military and i am not keen on public health service. However, the state of Illinois pragram would allow me to to do EM/IM or EM/PEDS and do my pay back in IM or PEDS.The only school i am into in Ilinois is CCOM, but i am waiting to hear from 2 schools. I think if i go to CCOM and do well I can get into any residecy I want. I am no lomger looking at the DO/MD thing just where I can do the best. My family is the most important thing. I see lots of oppurtunity. Any thoughts or perspectives? --Thanks
