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.

    I am currently attending Nova South eastern
    University in Ft lauderdale FL. I am in the speech pathology program and considering a medical career. You may want to check out Nova.

    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.

    Des Moines University has a high percentage of out of state students.... I am a first year, we have many from Texas, west coast, east coast.... several from other midwest states too.
