Strohmboli Posted November 27, 2015 Share Posted November 27, 2015 I apply in the spring. I'm at that point in the process where I'm narrowing down schools to apply to based on a host of data including: location, cost, program length, unique attributes, clinical rotations etc. As I've been doing all this work, the one resounding question that keeps coming back to me is- does it really matter where you go to school? Is there really THAT big of a difference between an Emory/Iowa/Duke and a Jefferson College of Health Science or PCOM, OHSU etc... I feel like I'm a decent applicant but probably not good enough to get into one of the "elite" programs. I guess what I'm trying to say is, at the end of the day as long as you pass boards and get the "C" at the end of your post-nominals does it really matter? Obviously avoiding brand-new programs or ones that have sketchy accred status is preferable if possible. I don't know... Chime in. Do you think that the school you go to matters all that much? Should I really stress about getting into a "recognizable school" or just apply to schools I like and go where I get in? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
