    You can do both without entering the “track”.. global health will be expensive, but if it’s what you want then, cool. Rural track is good if you already know where you want to end up, but neither tracks have to have a commitment until spring of 2nd year. Don’t worry about it atm, unless it’s your primary end game.

    FYI- you’ll be in some rural areas even if you do the normal track, so take that for what it’s worth to you.

    4th year, post match OSUCOM student. I was OOS, from a south eastern coastal city, and accepted off the waitlist. Any questions about the school, moving to Tulsa or life are welcome.

    OOS applicant, i’ve been complete since early July. Anybody know if the school accepts updates/letters of interest or at this point is it not worth it?

    When did you get off the wait list? Current OOS student on the waitlist here. Have sent in an update as well since getting waitlisted after grades improved.

    Does anybody know when the interview cycle officially ends? I phoned in last week and was told that my application is still being reviewed.

    I think they interview up until April, so there’s still time to be called for an interview within the next 2 months! If anyone has heard otherwise, please correct me!

    I believe I got off the waitlist sometime in January or February. I got off it shortly after making a phone call to one of the previous admissions coordinators making it very clear that despite being OOS I would be choosing OSU-COM if accepted. They only take a chance on a few OOS students a year and I think they want them to be very committed / the academic standards for being given that chance are little higher for OOS students.

    I feel like last year it even dragged into May, but I wasn't on campus much as a third year. Keep your heads up and stay positive because whether you interview in September or April, if you get a spot the whole game restarts in July.

    Do you think that such a phone call would still be a good idea? I already sent in a letter of intent.

    @DNC127 Hi there

    What are your thoughts on sending a letter of intent? I’ve been on the waitlist for a while, interviewed very early (end of august I think, maybe early sept). I’m IS.

    Send it!!! Time is running out. I would send it and make sure you 1. update well and provide significant experiences that improve your app (if you have them). 2. I would state that you will 100% choose OSU if accepted, and if you have been accepted elsewhere I would say "I am fortunate to have been accepted at X (number of schools) medical schools. However, if taken off the waitlist I would without hesitation politely decline those opportunities to come to OSU" or something to that effect. Thats what I did

    Do you recommend emailing it or uploading it on the portal? I uploaded mine. Does emailing it make it more likely to be seen?

    Lindsey or Jeff are your best bets. I would also make a point to talk to them if they are at Med - X about this, and talk to students and such.
