    My application will be submitted by next week, just no mcat yet.
    I may take the MCAT in September, applying by October. Is that too late for DO schools?
    CGPA: 3.72
    SGPA: 3.55
    Good letters of Rec, good Personal Statement, good extracurriculars.

    I know this is very brief but I am just trying to get an idea. Thank you all.

      I submitted my primaries first week of November, received all secondaries back and 7/10 interview invites.

          Its not optimal but certainly not too late. Applying in october with a sub-par app isnt a good idea but with a 505+ MCAT you should be good to go for all DO schools applying in october. I applied right when AACOMAS opened back in 2017 but my app was sub-par and I knew I needed a leg up. Your app looks great so far for DO

            Do well on your MCAT and you will have a killer DO app. October is not late, as stated above. Best of luck to you!!!

                Hi! Congrats on your acceptance! Do you mind sharing what your stats were? I'm going to be complete for a lot of places in in October and was worried I am too late. What schools did you feel like were OOS friendly?
