    Way to stay with it Amra and PalCareGrl. Congrats on the interviews and acceptance(s). I applied last year also. I've applied to 6 schools and they are just starting to review my secondaries (they just received all of my letters of rec). I'm keeping my hopes up for some interview invites soon. Where have you interviewed and been accepted? What's your "top" choice so far?

    mmpp- Try to be patient, this application cycle for me was much different than two years ago when I applied. This time I had my app in as early as possible and I've tried to stay on top of things... looks like the hard work has paid off.
    Interviewed at: LECOM,UNECOM,NSUCOM, and AZCOM, declined interviews at TUCOM and CCOM. I've already been accepted at AZCOM, I'm getting the "official" answer from NSUCOM tomorrow via phone (I am unofficially accepted) and I should hear from UNECOM very soon. My first choice after interviewing is NOVA (NSUCOM), though my first choice before interviewing was UNECOM because I am from New England. More and more though it's looking like Florida.... my goal was to know where I am going next year before Thanksgiving and it looks like I might meet it. Best of luck to you! Keep us posted on how things are going! :D

    Slingblade (cute name),

    I liked NOVA because I thought the students were very friendly, the facility was outstanding, and the programs were excellent. For example, they give you basic life support the first semester, so that in case you need it, you have the training (since everyone thinks that med students know everything instantly), you can get your MPh for free in conjuction with your DO (which I am interested in) and you can also get your MBA for some additional tuition. The administators and other professionals that I met were very nice and everyone seemed to love the school and want you to love it to. Granted, I didn't meet the infamous Dr Terry, but I had a wonderful experience there, and I'm pretty sure that it's the place for me. If you have any other questions, feel free to email or post.

    :) Best of luck at your interview! :D

    Hi Mike,
    Congratulations on your first interview. I just got mine for DMU as well, except it is on Nov. 15. I'm going to try to change it to the 16th. My situation is similar to yours, in that I applied to allopathic schools last year and discoverd how much more I relate to osteopthic principles in the midst of all of it. I'm applying solely to DO schools now. How and when did you start familiarizing yourself with OM? I'm really excited about it. What do you plan on telling adcoms if they ask you about your previous applications to allopathic school only? Do you know anything about DMU and the interview structure? best of luck and maybe I'll see you at DMU.
