    Which do you think is better and why? Any helpful advice for making a decision between these schools would be appreciated. Please try not to cite anecdotal info such as "because I got in" or "because I go there." I'm looking for a more objective comparison.

    Thanks.

    Look at the residency programs past students of each school have placed in and decide which gives you the better chance of doing what you want to do.

    It is 85 degrees today in Pomona, 21 degrees in Des Moines and 28 degrees in Kirksville...

    All three programs are great

    Hmm, I think I would get more studying done if it was cold and snowy outside. I choose DMU.

    I would choose a location that has the most residencies in the area that you are interested in. I would also choose a location that you would enjoy living in.

    I would never live in Kirskville. Des Moines wouldn't be too bad.

    They are all good schools, so make the decision for yourself.
