    Congrats! Why were you giving up hope? You only had to wait 2 weeks until after your secondary was complete! Good luck on your interview...it's very laid back. If you're not from the area and you need any advice on how to get to the school, where to stay, what to do... feel free to msg me.

        Oh yeah, they have that crazy match system over there. My ex-roommate at Penn had to go through that... he ended up at UT-Southwestern. If you applied MD then you really have to express to the interviewers your interest in osteopathic medicine. They may be skeptical that they are a Plan B, you know? You should be fine if you convince them you're sincere. PCOM accepts most of the students they interview cause their class is HUGE.

            One day to interview, have adcom meet, and send a letter to you? I waited an entire month! arrrgh. I'd be more upset if I weren't so darn relieved I'm in.

              Careful... The percentage of applicants/matriculants is pretty much the same as other schools. We're just "playing with" larger numbers. Regardless, PCOM rocks!

              Best of luck in future endevors wherever you end up!

                Congratulations!

                I was wondering if you sent PCOM a committee letter for the LOR requirement, of if you had to send individual letters. You may have seen the debates previously about PCOM's LOR requirement. Anyway, I'm one of those that has to send individual letters, and I'm wondering if my file will ever be complete (I read that others who sent individual letters had them thrown away or something). I sent them all my secondary stuff the first week of Feb. so I'm hoping to be complete soon too.

                Well, best of luck in your interview. PCOM looks like a great school. Take care.

                  They have no way of knowing whether or not you applied to MD schools, nor is it any of their damn business. They have no idea if you are a Plan B unless you say so.

                  If a DO school asks me if I applied to an MD school, I don't have any problem saying no.

                  When I interviewed at Penn State, they asked me if I applied to DO schools...my answer was no, even though that was a lie. Again, that isn't any of their business in my opinion.
