The difference in tuition fee doesn't concern me that much. LECOM only cost 27,590 more than UGA. Moreover, graduating one year faster at LECOM will make up for that difference. I think the main thing to consider is reputation which may affect the chance of residency, considering there are so many pharmacy schools now across the country. People probably know more about UGA and LECOM, which is a new private school; however, both schools are fully accredited. Moreover, since LECOM opened new branch in the Southeast (Florida), by the time I graudate and apply for residency, its reputation will be well-known across the East coast. LECOM has also great potential for growth. It is a tough decision for me. Possible higher prestige VS Length of Study.( I will be 28 this year) -- if I decide to go to residency, it would be 2+4 (6 years) at UGA. Anyone else has this 3 year VS 4 year dilemma?
