easier schools

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - DO' started by premeddeac, Sep 26, 2000.

  1. I'm interested in osteopathic medicine but unfortunately live in a state where there is not a college. I was wondering which might be some of the easier schools to get into for an out of state student with about average grades/mcat.

    Well if you are from western N.C., you probably have a good shot at PCSOM and WVSOM. Our schools averages are 3.4 and 24 MCAT. But you MUST be interested in primary care. The gpa and MCAT average of those declined were higher than those accepted. I think nearly the same is true for WVSOM.

    I'm at CCOM and I'm from a state lacking a osteo med school and I got many interviews and acceptances. Most D.O. schools are private have the ability to choose students without stipulation. If you want to be a doc bad enough you wouldn't consider not applying anywhere.
