    For example, do any schools only use your AACOMAS Application to decide wheter or not to give you an interview?? If so which ones are they??

    Also If anyone happens to know which of the 18 schools, (1) Sends secondaries to everyone, (2) Goes thru a selection process first. I would greatly appreciate it...

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I think there are 19 schools but I could be wrong.. anyway - TUCOM does a screening process first based on GPA and MCAT. You can go to their website to get the exact stats, but they are not overwhelmingly high. :)

    As Atlas stated, NYCOM grants an applicant an interview based on AACOMAS alone, then you fill out a secondary during the interview day.

    PalCareGrl is right.... there are 19 schools and two more are on the works.

    I know that DMU does a calculation with GPA and MCAT to grant someone a secondary and interview.

    TUCOM, does have a GPA and MCAT minimum for secondary and interview as well.... visit their site and email the director of admission, Dr. Haight, he is very helpful and is easy to approach.

    I'm sure there are other schools out there that do this.... Most DO schools go through some kind of screening. I think that the minimum requirements are usually attainable does it appears that some automatically send secondaries.... Good luck.

    Papers have been signed for a new school at Va Tech. I think they are supposed to start interviewing next year.
