WVSOM sent out secondaries last weekPCOM, WVSOM, UNECOM, and MUCOM haven't sent out any II's just yet.
If you've told schools you're waiting for a second MCAT score, they may have your application on hold until the new score arrives. Have your received application complete e-mails yet?
Also, many people who have submitted early have still not heard from most of these schools, so I wouldn't be worried just yet.
II = interview invites.
Oops misread that lolII = interview invites.
OP, chill. It's still early and the schools are most likely waiting on your second MCAT score, which I'm not sure why you retook. You also need to apply more broadly. Add another 5+ schools
I know many advise against LUCOM but what's wrong with WVSOM? Have a friend who goes there and she loves it. Aside from their rural health mission if you have no intention of practicing rural health.Your school list sucks that's my opinion. You may as well have thrown the money you spent on PCOM, CCOM, UNECOM AND RVU into a blender and made a brotein shake. Add more schools because you don't want to end up at LUCOM or WVSOM.
Not yet! My apps are all in for this cycle so aiming for 2017. When you get your 2nd MCAT come back and we can further advise on your list
So yes I have been reading too much SDN lately BUT! I am a bit stumped on why I haven't heard any communication from schools since submitting my secondaries. I am a little bit in the dark as far as the osteopathic application timeline but regardless here are my stats and my list.
MCAT - 503 (128,124,125,127) test 1, Test 2 taken July 22.
GPA's: cGPA = 3.64, sGPA = 3.59, nsGPA = 3.71
EC's - 1500 hours of patient contact as a nurse tech/aide, 50 hours volunteering, 10hours shadowing, no research
RVUCOM (both campuses)
MSU CHM (MD school)
Any schools I should definitely add? Kinda getting antsy and excited. Do you think schools are waiting on my 2nd MCAT?
Well you never know! If you're not strapped for cash sometimes it's worth the try. I also think some more non-medical experience would be a nice addition to your app if you were looking for more ways to improve to get your mind off waiting for interviewsYes Im a MI resident. I agree that UNECOM was probably a waste. Whoops.
Oh I wasn't getting defensive, it is now apparent you have a much more level head than some of the other people who ask about lists and don't like our suggestions. I know I haven't been accepted yet but with the way my cycle is going I do think I know what I'm talking about. With a 503 I really don't think you need a retake for most schools, with a little tweaking your list could have really high yield (i.e. Get rid of MCAT whores and LUCOM because you can do better than them) with your score I honestly think you have a better chance at MSUCHM than at a school like CCOM. No need to retake if you don't have to. Depending on how much money you are willing to spend then you can apply wherever you want thoughI'm not saying your advice isn't appreciated. I was simply seeing what kind of background you have that makes your advice suitable. I got my answer. No need to get defensive. This is the internet after all....
Time and time again, I see myself reading through all of these SDN posts and worrying myself sick. Then your name pops up with some down to earth info that I seem to forget. Pretty calming. Time to relax and head to the gym
