I'd like more search parameters than just scores. I have great scores, so getting in isn't the issue. Deciding which schools match me is more challenging. How about addressing "softer" issues like OMM emphasis? Research vs. clinical? Size of the school?
Thanks!

i think the best thing for that is to research the schools yourself, start with schools thatll keep you close to home an spread out as far as you are willing to go from there.

no tool is going to know you better than YOU.

Agreed, but I already know what I want. There's no reason a search tool can't include the size of the school, etc.

that would require a seperate tool, the tools here are designed to give you an estimate on your chances of getting into a particular school, not whether its a match for you

Then I misunderstood. All it said was "DO school match search," not "who will take me with my lousy scores." :)
