Hi everyone! You all seem very knowledgeable about applying to Osteopathic schools and the programs so I'm requesting some advice from you all. Right off the bat...here are my stats: Graduated UCLA 2001 Presently attending UCLA School of Public Health for my Masters in PH Cum GPA 3.4 Science GPA 3.1 Huge upward trend MCAT 7v 9p 11b=27s research/ ECs/ lots of passion! ) I presented these stats to allopathic and they were very discouraging about my chances in getting in. I looked into Osteopathic and the program seems very appealing. I don't care about the letters that appear after my name. All I have a passion for is to treat patients and work with people in enhancing their quality of life and health status. Honestly, do I have a chance of getting into an osteopathic school. I'm a CA resident so which schools are best to apply to? And what are the admissions committees looking for? What types of ECs do they prefer? How do I go about this...is the process similar to allopathic? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks guys and good luck in all your aspirations.
