    Considering applying early decision to one of these schools but cant really decide which one. i like the area around both schools and all the admission reps i have talked to from both have been really nice and helpful. Shenandoah is about 2 hours from my house while Wingate is about 6 i don't mind the distance honestly and i feel like id like life in NC. If anyone has an opinion or any information about either please feel free to comment and help me out.

    Thanks,

    I like Wingate because it has that suburb feel but is not too busy. Monroe is pretty close and Charlotte is as well, so lots to do. Not a terrible lot of stuff in the town of Wingate, but it will get you by, and Monroe and Marshville are essentially a stone's throw away anyhow. What I really liked about WUSOP is that there is a decent amount of practice experience starting in the P1 year, which some programs don't do. Not sure if you saw but the Facilities at Wingate are very nice as well. I toured a few of their classrooms as well as the compounding lab and everything is very "up to date" if that makes any sense, lol. I wish I could say more, but that's really all I can think of now. Best of luck whichever you choose!

    Whichever doesn’t cost as much (tuition/fees/COL) go to that. Your wallet will thank you later.

    You're in good shape if you can secure federal loan money to pay for school.
