I'm looking for some advice that I can really use rite about now. I am interested in Osteopathic Medicine and since I live near NYCOM, I am really focused on getting in there, in fact it might be the only school i apply to. Reasons for that are circumstances in the family that require me to stay home and care for some people. If I dont get into nycom this time, the only option left is applying there again next yr. I could apply to a few other schools around long island but it would be too much of a commute (> 1hr, compared to 10 minutes for NYCOM). So far i love nycom, but with my stats (3.4 cum gpa, 3.4 science, 30 mcat)im not sure if i have such a sure shot of getting in. Can anyone tell me some way that I can have a better shot. Should I speak to the adcoms about it before I apply there, is this a good idea ? Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
