HEY! As the craziness of this cycle continues, I now have multiple offers and one more upcoming interview at WesternU NW. I have already put my deposit down at Touro Nevada and just got my PNWU acceptance today! Academically I am more impressed and intrigued with Touro but for personal reasons feel I should consider PNWU. So, any outside advice or expertise would be greatly appreciated! I'll list my pros-cons for the schools to give y'all an idea of where I am at.

Touro Nevada
Pros
  • High pass rate (96%) and strong residency match rates (99.6%)
  • Local clinical rotations - all are within the Las Vegas region so I would not need to relocate my 3rd year.
  • Hands on anatomy lab - seems to be anatomy heavy.
  • Nice, new campus - I visited and was very impressed.
  • Location is close to home (5-hour drive or 45-minute flight)
Cons
  • Weather - just very hot in the summer
  • The campus building has not windows

PNWU
Pros
  • Good reputation in the area, WA's only DO school.
  • Close to my sister who lives in Yakima and closer to my boyfriend's family.
Cons
  • Clinical rotations not local - potential to be placed all over the PNW.
  • Lower board pass rate (86%) a little concerned about this
  • Location - Far from home and 2-hour drive to the nearest big airport
  • Cold weather
I am interviewing with WesternU NW mid-May. Anyone have thoughts on how that school compares to my other two options?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!
