I am a Canadian citizen, but did my undergrad and Bs in the US (MI). I am considering to apply to DO schools for the 2008 term. Just wanted to know if there are any Canadians or Internationals applying for this yr or 2008. And if you dont mind sharing your stats.
Ive been hearing that DO schools require higher stats or stronger applications from International students than the local ones, is this true?

Bs - 3.3- MCAT will take it next month.

Thanks

Interesting question!

I know there is someone from Nigeria in my class. But I am not sure if he has on a student vista or he is already a US citizen. I will look into it.

I am an international student, and i've been accepted to 3 D.O programs. There are quite a few DO programs that do not accept internationals (LECOM, OUCOM, TUORO,WVCOM etc.).I do believe you have to be at least on par with the competitive applicants.
