Please feel free to tag a pre-medical moderator once the secondary prompt has been posted.

Good luck to everyone applying!

does anyone know if ccom has taken sub 500 MCAT scores in the past? Their MCAT is crazy high

Uh don't know specifically but I'd doubt it, maybe if someone had an insane story. CCOM is a really rigorous school with almost constant assessment that prides itself on boards rates. In general sub 500 MCATs are monumental to overcome in terms of admissions, lots of risk for students not passing STEP/Level. Maybe newer DO schools will be more open but CCOM/AZCOM are mad established and get a ton of applications from well-qualified students so competition is steep.

Does CCOM send out secondaries since we already answered the questions on the primary app?
 
Are there any updates on a secondary, or were the secondary questions on the primary application? I believe it's the latter, but I could be mistaken.

I was wondering the same. I pre-wrote for this school based on last cycle's prompts, and the questions in the "Additional" section for this school on AACOMAS were the exact same prompts. I'm wondering if we'll just not receive a secondary because they included them on the primary. I'm hoping they won't send another set of questions to answer haha

I did the same, but I submitted primary 5/30 and haven't heard anything from them since
 
Received an email to complete application through their portal just now
Edit: no official secondary application for this cycle
 
in the application status portal, it says they're still awaiting my second letter of recommendation. The university I graduated from required a committee packet to be sent to all schools which included 6 LOR's. Should I email them and explain the reason why it appears as if I only have 1 LOR?

If you scroll down it appears that they are looking for a letter of recommendation from a physician to fill in that second LOR slot.

I submitted 4 LORs through AACOMAS, and ik that this school only needs a DO and committee/sci prof letter, does that mean they went through and picked those specifically or did they just grab 2?

I received two LORs from an MD and DO, which are included in the committee packet. I could probably ask another physician I've shadowed to send a separate LOR to fufill the the spot, but I think that would be sort of redundant.

I called the admissions office earlier today. I have a committee letter which includes the a separate letter from the DO and they told me it should update correctly within the next week.

They said they're updating their system and it's just a glitch.

Sounds good, I'm doing the same. They told me to call next Friday it's not updated by then, so I'll keep the thread in the loop
