    It seems as though many people here are struggling with the tough decision of which med school to attend (boy, do I wish I that was my biggest worry [​IMG] ). Tell me what osteopathic school is your favorite and why.

    I have two favorites right now. CCOM has a great rep and is affiliated with two osteopathic hospitals.They have on-campus housing, a huge faculty, a great gym, nice locale and many opportunities. It was a nice campus too.
    I also like UHS-COM. Probably the newest and best facilities on campus. They redid a whole lot of their school. The anatomy lab, OMT room were unbelievable. Their campus contains only an osteopathic medical school (as opposed to CCOM w/c has a few allied health school as well). The school was extremely friendly and professionally run.

    Danny, your information is incorrect. University of North Texas Health Science Center is an osteopathic campus which houses Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and other allied health schools such as the Graduate School of Biomedical Science offering PhDs and Masters as well as Masters of Public Health, and finally the Physician Assistant Program offering BS in PA studies.

    Are the Texas schools as hard to make for a non-resident as NYCOM is for a non New-Yorker? Just curious. Thanks

    I would say yes, probably just as hard for Texas.

    Edit: Just saw this thread was 12 years old. Sorry... move along...

    Yes, out-of-state applicants can apply to TX schools if they apply through TMDSAS.

    Exactly. This is why people who constantly hound others about using the search function then wonder why really old threads get bumped confuse me.

    And my favorite medical school is the one that lets me in. :cool:

    WVSOM- Location, Location, Location

    Lewisburg is beautiful, it isn't huge by any means but the small town vibe is so cool.

    You might be a redneck if....WVSOM is your favorite Osteopathic Medical School, especially if reasons cited is location!!!

    To me LECOM-B is the trifecta; PBL, Price, and Location!
