    Hi All! I was just curious...

    1. How many D.O schools did you apply to?

    2. Did you apply to M.D. schools also?

    3. What is your "1st choice" at this point in the game?

    ________________

    Personally, I applied to 8 DO programs (No MD ones) and my #1 choice = PCOM


    :D SPUNKY

    I applied to 9 DO schools, but I'm only planning on returning 7 of the secondaries...

    I did not apply to any MD schools.

    My number 1 (and 2) choices are Ohio U and Lake Erie.

    5 DO schools... hopefully 6 as soon as VCOM gets itself situated.

    2 MD schools (MCV and EVMS since they are in state for me. UVA prob would not send me a secondary with my GPA/MCAT. I love the DO philosophy but in state tuition looks pretty good :D )

    My first choice right now would be VCOM, although it technically doesnt exist right now. hehe :D

    I think VCOM is scheduled to be accredited in September. Then they will start accepting applications.

    I've applied to 11 DO schools, 6 MD, and am considering applying to some of the Texas schools.

    1st choice is AZCOM.

    Will be graduating in April, in the meantime I'm finishing my degree, shadowing physicians, and working in my school's anatomy lab. I will hopefully be TAing for chemistry classes this fall, and I am currently working for the Athletic Department as a tutor for student athletes.

    DO Schools applied to: 6
    MD Schools applies to: 14.

    Would like to get in at the cheapest MD school possible. If not MD, I'd prefer to go to CCOM.
