    Both AZCOM and CCOM ask the same basic question: "Why do you want to be an osteopathic physician and why do you want to attend AZCOM/CCOM?

    Nova's essay is: "Why do you want to become an osteopathic physician?"

    UHS is pretty open ended.

    Kirksville is similiar to Nova's.

    Basically, if you have about a one page essay prepared on why you want to be an osteopathic physician, you can adapt it to fit most of the DO school's secondary requirements.

    I only put one sentence about osteopathy in my AACOMAS statement. In fact, I used the exact same statement from my AMCAS app. I figured that I could talk about osteopathy in my secondaries, and give more info about myself in the primary app.

    yeah, i'm not sure what to do either. i spent 85% of my personal statement explaining why i want to be an osteopathic doc. i know i cant just copy my personal statement. should i just say the exact same thing except use different words? or do i need to make up new reasons??? any more advice would be great!
