    Hey if anyone can offer some advice on which school would be a better selection, NYCOM or PCOM. I live in NY and hear that PCOM provides much better opportunities (education/rotations/residencies), any truth to that?

    To those who respond, thanks for your time.

    I have actually heard that NYCOM offers great placement for clinicals. From what I know, most, if not all, are in Long Island.

    PCOM's board pass rates are much higher than NYCOM

    I would think NYCOM has better rotation sites.

    After seriously considering both schools, I chose PCOM. I am really happy with my decision. The school is exceptionally strong, the faculty and students are amazing, and the campus has a generally good vibe. If I had it to do over again, I would definatly choose PCOM, and I would recommend to anyone. Good luck!
