Hi everyone, I wanted to know which DO schools are comparable to allopathic schools, meaning in its surrounding, step scores, structure of curriculum and the amount of flexibility it gives its students in choosing residency. This might mean that this school has the highest board scores but not necessarily. It can simply mean that the school has top affiliated hospitals and has previously placed students in some of the most competitive (Derm, Anesth, etc.). Also, are there any DO schools that one should stear clear from because of some particular reason (environment, residency placement, class size, curriculum) I am currently researching NYCOM, since it is in NY and the hospitals where the students do rotations are in city-type urban surrounding, the type that im very used to since I have volunteered and interned at many of them. This doesn't mean that I prefer schools only in and around NY, but I do necesarily want to be around an urban setting. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it.
