Hi - I got into UNECOM in october, and then just got into NOVA-COM last week. I am having a hard time deciding between the two schools. Basically - i am leaning towards UNECOM and here is why: It seems that UNECOM is better during the first two years with basic sciences. There is a bigger emphasis on anatomy at UNECOM (they dissect four times a week compared to once a week at NOVA (or so i was told at the respective places)) Moreover, the class size at UNECOM (115) is a lot smaller than the 200 that NOVA is expecting in the class of 2004. I think it is better to be in a small class because of the stronger community feeling that is probably built. Also - I was told that UNECOM is pass/fail while NOVA is not, thus there is probably less competition at UNECOM. NOVA has its advantages in the clinical years it seems, and of course there is the weather, but I didn't want that to be a big consideration. Anyways - those are the things that are making me lean towards UNECOM - but please give advice as to whether i am wrong or right- i'm all ears!!
