I received an e-mail today from TCOM in response to a question I had asked them. In it, the admissions coordinator stated that TCOM was considering joining the TMDSAS! (For those of you who may not know, TMDSAS is the application you fill out for all of Texas? allopathic schools.) I am flabbergasted! Why would they want to do this? How are they going to choose whom to interview? How will they separate the applicants that have a true interest in the philosophy of Osteopathic medicine from those who do not? How would you go about writing your personal statement explaining your interest in osteopathic medicine? I am at a loss! Why would a D.O. school want to mix their applicant pool like that? Is this a good thing or a bad thing? If anyone has any ideas or general opinions on this, post them. I am very interested in hearing what others have to say.
