I am having a really hard time deciding between these two schools. I know that they are both reputable programs but is one "better" than the other? I don't know where I would want to live after school. Are laws in Oregon or CA more PA-friendly? What I do know: Pacific: -27 months, starts in May -Not affiliated with a med school (good or bad?) -Module Based Learning by organ systems -Has a rural track, many rural rotation sites (more "hands on" experience?) -Elective rotation must be in Pediatrics, Women's Health, Geriatrics, or Family Medicine -Rotations require a lot of traveling, even to different states (diverse but costly/stressful to move constantly) LLU: -24 months, starts in Sept -Affiliated with a good med school -More traditional learning set-up (not so much by organ systems) -closer to home (2 hours) -get choice of one elective rotation in any specialty -20K more tuition but could save some money by doing a few rotations near home I am all ears and open to hearing any and all input whether it be good, bad, or ugly. This is definitely one of the biggest decisions I've had to make and I really appreciate being able to get feedback from people on this forum. Thank you!
