"While I am grateful for the opportunity to become a doctor, I would recommend others stay away from CCOM if you have other options. Most student seem to believe the university administration is 100% in it for the money. Tuition is astronomical (2nd most indebted students behind Midwestern in Arizona, according to US News and World Report), support for board prep, matching advice, specialty mentorship is extremely limited. 0 African American students matriculated from at least 2015-2020 according to AACOM Report on Matriculants. Overall, if this is your only option, you will get a fine education and become a good doctor. That being said, students are mostly unhappy with their experience largely due to the micromanagement of university-wide administration and poor support for career aspirations."
"Pretty much everything else. Very high cost of attendance. Poor 3rd and 4th year rotations having you drive very far away. Absolutely no help with the match process, guidance for applying to specialties. They do not actually care about you as a medical student, they just want money. I have heard from reliable sources that they actually paid a consulting firm to figure out the maximum tuition they can charge before people will stop applying. Absolute joke."
