    Just thought I would get a thread started since it was mentioned previously in another thread! Not sure if there is already a facebook group either

    For those accepted, the $250 deposit and commitment are due by December 15, right? I plan on sending mine out tomorrow... just want to see if others got the same date. Don't want to miss it! I plan on sending it out first thing tomorrow.
    Should I call to tell them I'm intending on sending it in tomorrow?

    for some reason we are having trouble making it public...you can just pm me your name and I'll find you. make sure that you give me a distinct way to ID your profile.

    Hi All,
    I scheduled my interview for early January. Two things:
    -Any tips or advice for the interview process?
    -What was the average time between your interview and your notification of acceptance?

    Congratulations on your acceptances,

    PNN

    Congrats! I interviewed on Nov 28 and got my letter yesterday but it was dated Dec 7...I live in AZ so it took a while to get to me. The interview is really relaxed, we were joking around the whole time. They asked me basic questions about me, why pcom, why DO, why physcian, strengths/weaknesses, etc.. I walked out terrfied that they didn't take me seriously, because we were all laughing so much, but I got accepted so just be yourself!!
    Good luck!!!

    Also does anyone know if the pcom group is just the page or if there is an actual group, because I can only find the page on facebook.

    Thanks! :)

    Think before you speak. Be yourself. Be ready to talk about anything in your application. EVERYTHING is fair game at the interview. And be ready to talk about yourself and things that aren't on your application.

    Don't be afraid to ask questions to your interviewer. Actually, have a list of few questions ready to ask them because it shows interest in the school.
  22. Hey all, count me in on this:soexcited: can't wait to start..... going to be a long 8 months!
  23. When I interviewed they asked me a fair number of questions about things like personal qualities (also my least favorite questions cause it makes me feel like I'm bragging about myself) - expect some questions along the lines of "what qualities other than academics do you bring to this class?" or "how would your friends describe you?"

    Good luck!

    I got my binder today, I guess they sent them out a little earlier this year.
  26. Got mine too, I filled out the online forms for my background check..... so how do you define "crime"

    It asks have you ever committed a "crime" with no clarification.... do I have speeding tickets? yes..... did I once in college get a ticket for littering? yes sir - so does that mean yes I've committed a crime? I would say no

    I dunno, man. Littering?? PCOM will likely rescind your acceptance.

    I have made a spreadsheet that details some apartment complexes surrounding PCOM if you're looking at places to live

    Attached Files:

  29. haha I wasn't worried about them rescinding my acceptance, I was just illustrating how vague a question it is (more or less do they consider summary offenses a crime?)

    The answer to that is no, you don't have to declare summary offenses on your mystudentcheck

    Congrats!! I got accepted Dec 23rd after interviewing Dec 15th. Its very very relaxed. They mostly ask you about yourself based off of your application (like they had my application in front of them and were asking questions as they were reading it...)

    At one point they asked me "What type of person is your best friend?" It threw me off a little but I guess the interview went well! haha relax and take it easy! good luck!

    Hi All!!,
    My boyfriend was recently accepted to PCOM (Class of 2016!) I am soooo excited for him and I would love to be involved as much as possible with his education.
    I saw the posts about the FB page and I will definitely mention this site and the page to him. I am not going to play pretend on here and act like I know what's going on, I would just love to help him transition into the Medical School life.
    Right now we live 2.5 hours away from PCOM, he will be getting an apartment (Suggestions for places please!) while I stay here, work and take care of the little one (8 yrs old).

    CONGRATULATIONS to EVERYONE who made it in!!!

    **name is 'wife' due to the plans of marriage and more babies

    Hey guys. I'm looking for a female roommate for next year. I live at the Duffield apartments, it's pretty close to school and withing walking distance if you choose to walk (it will take you a little while though). It's really nice and safe here. All utilities are included and the rent if you split it by 2 is $750 a month (and 45 for internet). My current roommate is moving out at the end of the lease year and I don't really want to move. There is a pool on the property which is open all summer as well as a small gym that is free to use. The place is a 2B/2BR with a balcony.

    If anyone is interested, let me know. You would be getting the bigger room and you have your own bathroom.

    Message me on here or e-mail [email protected]

    And also, after everyone sent in their deposits, did it take eight weeks for a binder to arrive, as described on PCOM's website? Thanks :)

    it definitely took between 1-2 months for me to receive the binder, but i'm willing to bet i'll be quicker for you since it's getting close to the summer now.

    congrats on your acceptance! i'm sure we'll meet soon haha
