    It has been close to two weeks since AACOMAS submitted my verified apps to DO schools. I've received secondaries from every DO school I've applied to, with the exception of Touro-CA.

    My stats are VERY competitive for DO schools, so I wonder what's up?

    I was in the same situation. I waited for close to 3 weeks after my AACOMAS verification. I simply emailed the admissions office and politely asked if the office had received all my application materials and my recommendation letters, and if there was anything further they would need from me. Two days later, they emailed me my secondary application invite. I seriously think they just forgot to send it out or something. So I would try emailing them!

    Thanks, but do you have to send in your letters to TOURO-CA before they give you a secondary?

    I have no idea about that. If I were you, I would call the admissions office or shoot them an email because they probably can give you the right answer :)

    Touro CA was one of the last ones to give me secondary. But you don't need to send in LOR to get it. They also only accept snail mail copy of LOR, so you will have to choose the more expensive paper copy delivery from Interfolio.

    Yet another illustration of why patience is a virtue.

    check your junk mail. I got a secondary from Touro CA like today or something (AACOMAS was verified on 8/22 i think) and it ended up in junk mail.

    Maybe I should add Touro-CA as well? Do they have preferences for CA residents?

    I am not from CA, btw.

    They say that they do not have preference for Ca residents, but Ca residents make up 75% of their class. Soooooo

    Maybe it's because most applicants are from CA???

    Yea that would probably explain it. Touro-CA is a private institution after all.
