    OsteoMed, I just got my secondary today! Beware, there is a due date for all the materials to be send in by (unless its different for out-of-staters)! Mine is in ONE MONTH (Sept 24). Talk about pressure. Anyways, be patient, yours will come soon! :) BTW, I submitted my primary July 1st. Good Luck to all!!!

    I also received MSUCOM but I will not submit because of the recommendation b.s. I had a difficult time gathering my recommendations, which were written by profs who are very difficult to get a hold of. MSUCOM is strict about these rec forms and I do not want to ask my recommenders to do even more for me by filling out those lengthy forms. It's too bad because I would have loved to pursue this excellent program, even though it is not my 1st choice. Anyone else share these feelings? Good luck.

    Hey guys, i too felt the same way about sending this elaborate recommendation form to my profs/doctors to fill out, but honestly, as hard as it was to ask them, if they were willing to do it the first time, it's not _that_ much harder to have them fill out out a form. if they say no, at least you know, right?

    btw, it's so cool to meet your premed applicants on here, because it's even better to meet them in person! Hey Dale!

    I am an applicant to MSUCOm and i received their 2ndary. HOwever, it seems to place a lot of emphasis on DO volunteer/shadowing experience. If I don't have that, will that hurt me? In my area, there aren't any willing osteopathic physicians who will let me shadow them. but i love the osteopathic philosophy, and am dedicated to it. Do i have a chance?

    Hot dang, people have secondaries from MSU-COM. I've been sitting here waiting patiently for one, hoping to hear back from them. I applied semi-late (7/29) so I kinda figured I'd still be waiting.
    But, if anyone would be so kind as to post the questions for the MSU-COM secondary I would be eternally grateful.
    Thank you so much!!!

    BTW to the above poster "Wren1976", I couldn't help but notice you're from Canton, MI. I'm from Canton too! During the summer I actually work for Canton Township. Did you go to Plymouth Canton or Salem H.S. by any chance?
