    Hey! I don't know about how many seats remain, but I do know that they are still interviewing if that helps.

    Date OptomCAS submitted: 11/3/17
    Date verified: 11/09/2017
    OAT Scores: 300AA
    Major: Human Physiology
    GPA: 3.43
    Extracurricular Activities: Volunteers, shadows, WISE, etc.
    Schools applied: NSUCO, UMSL, ICO, IUSO
    Interviews extended/date: UMSL (12/19), NSUCO (1/12), ICO (1/16), IUSO (1/26)
    Interviews accepted: UMSL , NSUCO, ICO , IUSO
    Interviews declined:
    Rejections/date:
    Acceptance/date:
    UMSL (12/19), ICO (1/19), IUSO (1/30)

    I am torn between all three of my offering schools for different reasons. In general, I didn't "love" IUSO and it just didn't give me any reason to keep in the running. I did love ICO's facilities and school, but location in a huge city didn't seem like somewhere I want to be for 3+ years. I liked UMSL's small classes and they have a new clinic on campus with a few different other clinics in St. Louis. I would feel more comfortable in a smaller city, but I didn't think that UMSL's clinician skills were really praised. I have met tons of IUSO and ICO grads who loved both schools. Does anyone have any advice on any of these schools that could help me narrow down my decision?

    I interviewed on 1/16 and heard back on 1/19, but my letter got lost in the mail for about a week before I actually got it. Not sure what happened there.
