Proposed merge with Greenbrier Military School[edit]

I disagree that these articles should be merged. It appears they share only a campus in common, but are otherwise completely different schools. If the Greenbrier Military School actually became the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, that would be different, but military school and medical school are completely different things.

I second the above comments. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 04:17, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Disputing incorrect data from citation in text regarding US News debt[edit]

The citation and claims that WVSOM graduates students with the highest amount of debt is incorrect. Please correct the information to represent the most reliable source, and most up to date information.

According to the Osteopathic Medical College Information Book (CIB), 2016, published by the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, the Osteopathic Medical School with the highest graduate indebtedness is the A.T. Still University of Health Sciences–School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA). [1]

Information regarding ATSU in the 2016 CIB is found on Page 39: "Average 2013 graduate indebtedness: $300,099" Information regarding WVSOM is found on Page 101: "Average 2013 graduate indebtedness: $242,742"

Please note that the data cited in the US News & World Report article is directly from the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, but an out of date source was used for their article. Therefore, the article is misleading, incorrect, and no longer relevant; the statements from US News & World Report regarding WVSOM's graduate debt cited in this article are incorrect and should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.187.5.177 (talk) 04:15, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
