    Hi, I was wondering, how much is it to hold an acceptance seat, for each of the DO schools? Let's start a list:

    Touro $2,000 after two weeks of acceptance letter

    I applied for early acceptance and the deposit was $4000. I figured I would spend about that flying out to schools and for hotel rooms.

    These amounts seem really high to me. Is this typical of osteo schools? Would most schools refund the deposit if you decided to go elsewhere, or is OSU the exception? Does anyone know if allo schools require such a large deposit just to hold a spot? Any info would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    :)

    I'm also interested in why exactly the osteopathic schools are charging around 20 times the cost of holding an allopathic spot.
