It's always better to apply earlier. As the app cycle progresses, some of the schools scholarship funds become exhausted, and the more selective pod schools usually fill and go onto waitlists in the springtime.
You will have no problem, so don't worry. They have the largest class sizes of any pod school and relatively low selectivity.
I think this obviously also means they care about you as a student the most.
Yea, Barry, NYCPM, Temple, Scholl and Cali have equally low selectivity, so you should be good. I dont know much about DMU and Azpod... except from my interview day, i felt that the Azpod was too disorganized and unprofessional at the moment, and DMU repeatedly told us how if we chose them, we would get the 'privilege' of taking classes and interacting with DOs... I didnt find that to be too caring in regards to podiatry students.
Because they have low admission standards? How does that work into caring about students?? Sounds more like ripping certain students off to me (ie accepting people they know will fail out while still gaining tuition dollars)
I have to be honest here and say that this kind of talk is exactly what we need to move away from on this forum. Such generalities doesn't help applicants and statements as this doesn't do anything to further the profession. While some schools may have lower admissions standards, this is standard for any form of school from undergrad to law to medical school. From my perspective admissions standards are rising as a whole and encouraging people with "you won't have a problem" may be premature and unfounded especially when you quite obviously don't know the specifics of his or her situation.
By the way, to the original poster, OCPM is a great choice. While I was accepted to every Pod school to which I applied I CHOSE OCPM for the faculty, location, facilities, and countless other factors. While OCPM was not my original first choice it was after visiting and interviewing that my mind was completely changed, for me it was a perfect fit and was a step above everywhere else I applied and visited...
lol, ok good cause I was scared for a second
