Hello,
I decided very last minute that I wanted to apply to school's this year. I was going to wait an extra year but changed my mind. I have a 26 mcat and a 3.5 gpa, and a bunch of volunteer work. I hope its not too late. These are the schools that are still taking applications that I was going to apply too...


Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bradenton
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Main Campus
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Atlanta Campus
Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Mare Island
Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Nevada
Western University of Health Sciences / College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific


Do I have any chance? And I was wondering, why do these school's allow for such late applications, is there any paticular reason? Thanks, lata

I guess I don't know what your chances are at this point, but what made me apply (late) was that several people have posted on mdapplicants that they applied right before deadlines to DO schools and received acceptances. I assume if the deadlines are placed where they are, they must have a reason for it. I'm sure some schools fill up before their deadlines, but if you apply to enough schools I'm sure you have a shot at a couple of them. Good luck!

Good luck, but I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. Your chances are VERY small at this point. Keep your plans for the next year in place, in case you don't hear back. I don't know of any school that interviews past this month, and they typically notify you 2 weeks in advance before an interview, which looks like you are pretty much out of time.

i applied 'on time' and my secondaries were in an completed october/november however my DO letter came later and my files were just complete about 2 weeks ago.


w/in the last 1.5 weeks i received invites to interview @ LECOM-Main Campus, TUCOM-LV & TUCOM-MI.


my chances of a seat are slim but getting an interview is an opportunity; if i'm lucky enough i'll get to atleast be waitlisted. so i personally don't think its all that late.

I know a guy who was accepted to DMU just a few weeks before school started. As long as they are willing to take your application you have a chance. You never know what is going to happen. Good luck!
Application date and acceptance date are independent of each other. The person that was accepted right before school started may not have applied late.
