    @chizledfrmstone

    On a separate word document, please discuss how your background, experience or academic program has prepared you for meeting Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Mission, Goals, or Objectives. Consider addressing a few areas: Why Osteopathic Medicine: Have you been exposed to a diverse environment? How did you contribute? How have your academic background and personal experiences prepared you for medical school? How were you influenced by a shadowing Experience?

    Secondary received! Not sure how to access it though since I already submitted secondary for TUCOM CA and this new secondary is showing as an option for submission. Looks like may need to create a new account?

    Last year II's came out 08/22 so it might be a little while if they follow the same trend this year!

    Lol. Same thoughts here. I was pretty brief on those descriptions in the secondary. I figured if they have more questions they can refer to the primary.

    So is the consensus for this secondary to more or less copy paste your primary into the prompts? Not sure what I can say for shadowing that I havent already said in my primary...

    The secondary "essays" ask for the exact same info as the primary. Literally 1000 characters each for Employment, Volunteer, Research, Shadowing, EC's....the primary did the same with a slightly different character count. I assume it was the same last year. Did you just copy/paste the same essay in to their prompt? Do they want us to just reword it? I don't want to adcoms to think I am lazy, but it is almost verbatim from the primary.

    Pretty much, but some sections I believe I had to make it shorter on the secondary due to the word limit. On my interview day we pretty much went through my primary only, so I wouldn't worry too much about secondary. But I feel you about repeating the primary contents all over again. (and the $100)

    I am an incoming OMS1 at this school, I am not applying this year. Just FYI. Also, TUN website doesn't show the avg GPA and MCAT so don't waste your time looking for them.

    I had 3.6 for cGPA and 3.5 for sGPA. I only took old MCAT and I had 30 and 31. Traditional student.

    Not the MS1 but I went to TUN for DO day last spring. The facility is OK, old tire shop remodeled but nice. The library seems like it would work for me, probably a room 40x30, think they said something about it all being online. They have study rooms upstairs and tutoring as well, from student that did well in the class last semester. They have a basket ball court/volleyball/Crossfit area and play Touro cal every year competitively. They also have a gym that seems pretty decent, there was a few student using when we went through. Also have a Kosher dining facility that seems to have mixed reviews from the students. But over all I was impressed and this is one of my top schools. Faculty were awesome and inviting. Oh and free coffee.

    TDOCSPI pretty much wrote what I wanted to say. One thing that many people don't like about our school is the warehouse-like campus. At first I didn't like this either but after experiencing the Vegas heat I am beginning to like the one building campus...lol. It's cool inside and there's no need to get out the building to get to another. Also, coming from undergrad with pretty big campus, I like how I can get to everywhere pretty quick in TUN.

    The library definitely is not the biggest, and there are a lot of good cafes around the school where you can study. I personally like the gym. It's not big, but there's everything you need. And it's free to use! There are a lot of study rooms where you can do group/personal study.

    PastorDoc-- Since you attended 7 schools, do you remember how you filled out the "expected degree date"? I took two courses over the summer at a different college. I obviously didn't receive a degree from there, but it's required that you fill that out as MM/YYYY. Asked admissions but haven't heard back yet.

    I included the dates that I attended each institution but left the "expected degree" portions blank (except for the college I graduated at). Moved around a bit so the dates kept shifting based on individual school requirements. Then my diy post-bacc was at several schools so left those blank too. Hope this helps! :)
