Hi all!... I'm a PostBacc, and definitely interested in Osteop. Med. The reason I am writing this post is b/c though I have been trying to do searches on the web I really havent found a clear cut answer on a few things: How does the "match" process work? Is it impossible (or near to it) to take both the COMLEX and the USMLE? What are the More Competitive, Not as Competitive, and Less Competitive Residencies? I'm interested in Family Med, OB/GYN, and Anesth... it is my understanding from reading a number of posts that if one is attending a DO school it is harder to obtain More competitive residencies. Are the ones that I am interested in difficult to obtain in the New York area? Now for a personal question: I've completed Bio 1 & 2 and Chem 1, A A and A- respectively... considering I stay on this path (not descending... but remaining in the 3.7-3.8 ball park... yet score relatively low 20-23 MCAT) have an excellent personal statement, disadvantaged background with EC's and personal statement to complement it, what would be my chances at PCOM or NYCOM or Nova? [I can only apply to a limited number of schools b/c i have a baby girl and I have to go somewhere that I have familial support. Sooo.. thats why only applying to three DO's] P.S...I havent taken the MCAT yet, but I dont do well on standardized tests... so preparing for the worst but always hoping for the best!
