Atsu-soma
I’ve been accepted to ATSU-SOMA and I’m strongly considering it. However I’ve been hearing about all the pros and cons about it and the curriculum change. Is there a current 1st or 2nd year who can explain their experiences at SOMA ? And what the pros/cons of their experience has been? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

CHSU vs. ATSU SOMA vs. AZCOM
I was wondering if there are any current students or anyone that has any input on these schools since I'm unsure which school I want to go to out of the three. Here are my pros and cons list right now: CHSU Pros: 4 hours away from home; new facilities and technology; hear that admin cares about students and have been making changes to improve school; small campus Cons: new school and not fully accredited yet; no cadaver lab; requires you to take a cooking class which takes up...

Help me decide: Noorda COM vs ATSU-SOMA vs NYIT-Arkansas
I have been fortunate to have been accepted by these schools. I am interested in radiology, neurology, cardiology & GI. I understand these specialties (except neuro) are not DO friendly and was wondering which of these schools would be the best for achieving them? I was leaning towards NYIT-Arkansas or ATSU SOMA. Any advice appreciated. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

WCUCOM vs ACOM vs RV Utah vs Noorda vs UIWSOM vs Nova
I am lucky to have 6 acceptances and lots of interviews. As of now, I am interested in family medicine. I would like to hear if anyone has any advice, I am leaning toward WCUCOM right now.

ATSU-SOMA, LECOM (DSP Pathway) or LMU-DCOM
Hey all! I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to these three programs thus far in the cycle and I am trying to make a pros/cons list for each. I would love to hear your feedback concerning each school. Anything would be appreciated. Just a heads up--I am applying to the HPSP through the Navy and if I get this (should know winter/spring) then tuition will not be as much of a deciding factor. Thank you <333 Edit: I posted this on the "Help me choose X vs. Y school thread" but for the... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

ACOM vs ATSU-SOMA: Help Needed!
Today I was accepted off the waitlist to ACOM. I have already put my $2,000 deposit down at ATSU and have secured an apartment with a move in date of July 8, which came with some down payments as well. However, I have heard great things about ACOM and I’m not sure if ACOM is substantially better than ATSU where it would be smart for me to take my losses and go with ACOM. Some pros & cons for each: ACOM Pros: -Tuition about 55k - Cheap cost of living, can find a 1bdrm for 1000 or... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)
