    the ratio of acceptances to applicants for osteopathic scholls was 1:2.7 respectivly. So, I guess we have a 1 in 2.7 chance of getting in ;) . The gpa and mcat scores was what you listed, but it ranges quite a bit from one school to another. Some averages are a low as 3.2, and some as high as 3.65.

    Here is current date on how many students enroll each year at each school:

    AZCOM: 125
    CCOM: 160
    DMUCOM: 205
    KCOM: 150
    LECOM: 144
    MSUCOM: 124
    NYCOM: 260
    NOVA: 180
    OUCOM: 100
    OSUCOM: 88
    PCOM: 250
    PCSOM: 60
    TOURO: 100
    UHSCOM: 220
    UMDNJSOM: 75
    UNECOM: 115
    TCOM: 115
    WVSOM: 75
    COMP: 176

    Source: AACOM Web Site

    TOTAL: 2722 in the year 2000

    This probably varies from year to year so figure on 2700 - 2750 spots open each year.

    The Annual Report given by AACOM reports an estimated 6,500 - 7,200 applicants for the 2001 class.

    During our orientation at PCOM we were told there were about 4500 applicants and about 400 interviews....So do the math. Although as you can see from the other posts about PCOM and their "state pref" these numbers could be skewed a bit.
