    First and Foremost, welcome to SDN.
    I understand your situation. The space for the personal statements is so small.
    GOOD LUCK.
    If I might ask, what schools did you apply or how many schools.

    They don't give you the 5,300 characters because they want you to write a crapy essay.

    I applied to both and I tried to use some of my AMCAS essay but I had to change most of the personal statement.

    DO4sure I'll be praying for you for sure. Hopefully this will be an exciting year for you. You've already completed the first step...now secondaries will be arriving in a few weeks or months and then the game really begins. I know you'll get several interviews and will be telling us about being accepted into the class of 2007. I'm already proud of you. Be sure to update us and please enjoy this year!!!

    I sent in mine yesterday night and it sure feels good to have it out of my hands! :) I applied to 4: CCOM, PCOM, NYCOM, and NOVA. My first choice is CCOM. Can't wait for the interviews to start. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    First of all, congratulations and good luck.

    Secondly...if you want to be a DO, apply to DO schools.

    I was told by a director of Admissions at a DO school that they "understand that many students apply to MD schools as well, but they really enjoy if when a student applies all-DO for the right reasons."

    I guess the right reason in your case is because you want to be a DO. Sounds good to me.

    Let me know if you want any opinions or have questions about PCOM. I will be starting there in the fall and would be more than happy to answer Qs about the interview and such.

    Also, there are plenty of students on these boards from PCOM that are helpful as well.

    Again, good luck.

    Hi JP! Thanks for the suppport...and congrats on starting PCOM in the fall! What was the interview like? I met with the minority recruiter there 2 years ago and I really liked the atmosphere, however when I went to an open house at UMDNJ-SOM I fell in love!!! I really felt like I was MEANT to be there, do you know what I mean?? But I do like PCOM as well and it is definitely up there as my #1.5 choice! Still waiting for MCAT scores...I see from other posts otheres have been surprised with their scores but I can't harp on that...I'll just wait and see!!!
     
  13. Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know if AACOMAS sends you an e-mail to confirm that your application was successfully submitted? I'd have to admit that getting that application submitted was a big relief (woo hoo!) but now onto secondaries. Thanks all, much appreciated.

    I just emailed AACOMAS and they told me that my application was verified and is scheduled to be sent to my designated schools in the middle of June.

When did you submit? Were all your transcripts in already? I have one more to send them.
