live in maryland, average EC and letters of rec, what are chances?
stats wise, your solid.
can't give you more feedback without more details.
shadow a DO, get a letter
thanks for quick response, i would like to apply to florida, arizona, among other southern schools (love warmer climates), so how would my residency (maryland) affect chances?
Well AZ is increasing their OOS seat allotment to 50% so you will be fine there. Some FL schools are fine for OOS, some aren't. Get the MSAR and check out the numbers
I don't think MSAR has any DO schools (I believe OP was looking at DOs only)
does this give information for DO schools?
And you're right. I was thinking MD Carry on!
so as long as i have a few years worth of working/volunteering in doctor's offices, along with my aforementioned stats, i have a shot in most DO schools?
does it give me more of advantage if applying to closer schools such as in pennsylvania/new york?
Good for D.O most likely
any more input folks? thanks so far
more input would be appreciated, thanks folks
Oklahoma State is another southern DO program..I don't honestly know about how they view OOS...I do know that if you contact them, the lady who takes care of all the questions is great and super helpful!
specifically the schools in arizona and nova and lecom in florida, how would they view east coast applicants?
more input would be appreciated, thank yall
any advice on chances in cali schools like western pomona?
you should apply to some low-tier MD programs as well. you might get in
appreciate the optimism, any MD you would suggest? more importantly, how would you fancy my chances for western pomona considering i live on the east coast?
I don't know what western pomona is, but for MD you can apply to GW, NYMC, ans since your from Maryland also apply to UMD. Just check out the MSAR with schools around a median of 30 or lower mcat. Your GPA is good.
EDIT: If you are planning on applying this cycle, submit your AMCAS asap
ok thanks; im talking about western school of osteopathic medicine in pomona; additionally, how would my chances be for nova in south florida?
I definitely agree. You have a slightly below avg GPA, but only slightly and your MCAT is close enough to a 30 to garner hope. People have been admitted to MD schools with your stats. Perhaps you could retake it to try and hit that 30 mark?
appreciate it but i would rather get into my top DO choice than a random MD that would accept me; so how would you fancy my chances for nova and western-comp/which would i have a better shot at considering i am from the east coast?
bump; also based on my east coast residency, how would azcom fair in this?
