PSA, there's a new MSAR-akin tool for DO schools now that's free to use. Figured I should share! Good luck everyone this cycle!

just got an email saying my app was received and that secondaries will be sent out on an ongoing basis starting mid-august
 
Anyone know the average MCAT for this school?
I've heard they put a lot of weight on MCAT at this school. If you have a sub 500 I wouldn't apply unless you have some crazy circumstances that lead to the sub 500

Exactly the same issue. The documents seem to be protected. I called the admissions they said "other people have been able to do it". That was their help :mad: Please let me know if you find a solution.
 
Ok I just emailed them and they sent me a document that works.
 
On the application for Touro it states to upload a resume unless you're an undergraduate student. However #1 on the supplemental it says not to upload documents (resume, unofficial transcripts, immunizations, etc). Which one is it?

So I was having this issue, but then I read #3 on the supplemental application. If you save the file as a PDF and then reconvert the PDF to word, you should be able to add in your essay.

That or print the PDF as a PDF. The copy won't have any protections and you can insert a text box.
 
Off campus housing for Touro Middletown, don't live in the dorms...

Do not upload any documentation they don't ask for.

  • Since we rely on the recommendations that had been sent to AACOMAS or Interfolio etc., in the LOR section, just add the names, list the letter as being delivered offline, save and proceed. Any recommendation received on the e-application will not be reviewed.
Just list the names of the LORs that fulfill the requirement

Also, make sure you didn't upload your transcripts or any documentation to the electronic secondary
  • You are not required to submit your immunizations or official transcripts at this time, please do not submit any paperwork unless you have been requested to do so.

Straight from the downloaded supplemental application
  1. Although the ApplyYourself e-application will have prompts to upload various documents (e.g., a resume, immunization forms, unofficial transcripts), do not upload these documents or any other document to the e-application.
I got the complete email today, Sent as PDF and followed the above instructions.

I called them about the resume and they stated they don't care if I upload my resume or not. They were worried about formatting issues, which is why they don't want anything uploaded onto the e-application. The supplemental and e-application were misleading, which was why the issue came up.

Everything on my resume is in my application! The email containing the link to the secondary had specific instructions.
 
Is it okay to copy and paste my personal statement from AACOMAS into Middletown personal statement? This is a weird "secondary".

Was anyone with a Mac able to use the supplemental application? I got an email saying it was updated but I am still struggling to.

I used adobe acrobat pro to edit the pdf. You can start a 7 day free trial and cancel it if need be.

Okay thanks. If you uploaded the recommendations through aacomas do you still have to input the names on the secondary?

Just the names I believe. And select letter delivered offline if you are submitting through AACOMAS

All of these questions are answered by reading the supplemental file you have to download.
