Know the basics, like why DO, make sure also explain why that program in particular especially since its new DO program. Make sure u express how you are excited to be apart of that first DO class because u want to lay the foundation for the next gen...something along those lines and you should be fine.

so, reading this, are there any requirements for the preferential admissions like u have to get a 3.5 in the masters? certain mcat requirements to get into the med school after completing their masters? anyone know? because the website for the master's is really barebones.
 
I have an interview coming up next week and I figured I need to know the basic questions, why medicine, why DO, why DUQCOM, etc., but are there any specific questions that I should prepare for from ahead? I haven't had any A and I want to prepare as much as I can! Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a question for any recent applicant. Did you guys have both an applicant ID and Duquesne ID number prior to being admitted or no? My portal states both and I just can't remember if the ID is new or no it has been there lol.

You should have both since the moment you successfully registered your account

So does this mean all seats are taken mostly?
sounds like it rn but i wonder if since it’s such a new program a lot of those ppl may give up their deposit and choose another program?? hopefully that would give some waitlist movement, im waitlisted since october so im banking on that lol! but they had great vibes at their interview day so i wouldnt be surprised if they do stay filled up between the small class size and their new facilities

When did you interview? Do they tell you relatively fast if you’re wait listed or not?
 
OOS II, they said that the interviews are for waitlist spots.

Anyone know if they take 495+ scores ? Im retaking in September or possibly January and just want to know if they even interview people in the upper 490’s or if it’s a hard cutoff with the 500 😩

share your stats please
 
MCAT (one attempt): 515 (128, 129, 127, 131)
cGPA: 3.85
sGPA (according to AACOMAS): 3.74
I'm kinda in the same boat with you in terms of similar stats, any idea as to why other schools haven't bitten yet? do you think maybe it was your writing, clinical hours, interview, etc?
