Just to ward off accusations of bitterness, I'm very satisfied with the interviews that I've got, and accept that maybe I just didn't make the numbers cutoff at the programs that rejected me. But I haven't ruled out the alternate hypothesis that the programs where I won't be interviewing just don't consider DOs. I still think that DO students shouldn't be too obsessed with this, and should just apply to where they'd consider going, but I'm wondering what other osteopathic applicants' experiences have been with these programs: NY Hospital Queens NYU Bellevue Mt. Sinai NY Presbyterian FWIW, I took both Step 1 & 2 of the USMLE, and have 2 digits of 99 on both, so if it was purely a numbers game, they're using some insane cutoffs. On interviews so far, I've gotten extremely positive feedback on my grades, LORs, and Dean's Letter. *shrug* Maybe this is true of lots of their applicants, and they turn away tons of people whose apps are the same as mine, but you can see why I'm starting to suspect that it could be a "DOs need not apply" policy, right?
