Members don't see this ad.
After becoming "complete" several months back now, I have not been rejected by OR been offered an interview from:
1. Penn State - DID receive letter stating "continuous review"
2. NYMC
3. Temple
4. USC

I'm also complete at these DO schools:
1. PCOM
2. NYCOM
3. UMDNJ
... but still no rejection/interview

I called each school several times and my file is still "under review". Anyone out there in the same situation and care to share any new info and/or advice?

That's pretty bad that you haven't even been offered interviews at the DO schools. The best you can do is send a pre-interview letter of interest, telling them how much you like the school. Other than that there's nothing you can do.

yes...are you a late applicant? cause this can be a big factor in the reason why you have no heard back from anyone.

That depends. DO schools dont' like everyone. I was shocked that I ended up with twice as many MD interviews than DO. His application, personal statement and ECs may make him look like he wouldn't be a great canidate for a DO school.

But I do agree that sending letters is what you can do at this point. Try to emphesis to the schools how serious you are about becoming a doctor.

That's true. If you hadn't had any experience with DOs or do not seem to be enthusiastic about the DO philosophy that could hurt at DO schools.
