Hello, my brother has been accepted to these two schools (West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and LMU-DCOM) and I would like to ask which would be a better choice for him. He would like to pursue surgery but is keeping his mind open.

LMU-DCOM:

Pros:

In-State.

About an hour from home.

Decent Match List.

Cons:

Have heard things from other students and in this forum about the quality of rotations/education.

WVSOM:

Pros:

Have heard better things about rotations/education experience.

Cons:

Out of State

Farther from home, about 6 hours.

Other things I'm not aware of, honestly do not too much about the school's reputation and rotation quality.

I didn't list COA because in either case, they are both around 50k. Although, WVSOM apparently has a program where if you GA for them for one year they pay the full tuition of your third and fourth year. I appreciate any and all advice! Especially since the deadline for deposit is March 10th or so.
