    @mmaslyanko might be including DO applicants. The DO cycle is longer, and you can even submit in October and be fine.

    Hi fellow non-trads! I just came across this thread and thought I'd introduce myself. I finished undergraduate degree about ten years ago, spent some time working in education and did a few other things. I'm also a single mother and about 3 years ago made the crazy decision to pursue becoming a doctor. I completed all my prereqs this year and am currently applying. It's been quite the journey, but I feel so fortunate that I've made it to this point. Hoping for the best for all of us!

    Yeah, well, apparently some of the subcommittees are a little behind. I've been in for 6.5 years though. I'm used to waiting.

    Fortunately, our LOAs came from USUHS, and they did all of us in one. We had it in like July or August, thank God. Honestly, I wish I had taken the MCAT earlier. I try not to regret anything, particularly since the MCAT I got was perfect for me, and I don't know if I would have gotten as baller of a score if I had taken it on a different day. But even if I had scored 9 points lower, I'd still be at their median and probably would have my unconditional acceptance at this point.

    But everything happens for a reason, and I have faith it's all going the way it's supposed to.

    Hello Everyone!

    I just found this thread and figured I would post and not lurk the entire time. It is always beneficial to have positive energy swirling around!

    After two bachelors degrees, one doctorate, career as a clinician, two kiddos ... it is time for medical school! My spouse is thrilled. Ha! He thought I was done o_O ...

    So here I am! I submitted one of my secondaries 2.5 weeks ago and received an interview invite last week. This feels so weird. Imposter Syndrome is hitting hard and this is the first time I have felt this way. :nailbiting:

    I am looking forward to seeing all of your success. :joyful:

    Got the official WL notice from one of my schools (not USUHS). They historically have a lot of movement, so that’s promising. Expecting to hear from usuhs tomorrow. Pray for me lol.

    I'm already DoDMerb qualified and have a clearance, but you know how it goes. Just a waiting game for the real acceptance now. Yeah. I think you said something about not needing to go to ODS, right?

    Correct, I am commissioned already so no ODS for me. Congrats again! I have no idea when the official acceptance stuff will come, but I am cleared in DODMERB as well and no issues with clearance so should be early next year I would assume!
