Ok guys, who is applying? and who has gotten interviews/acceptances? Anyone want to share their experiences of the program? =)

I think Cheryl (from OSU) told me they start interviewing in April... Can anyone confirm?

Thanks in advance!

i'm from wisconsin. i just interviewed there on friday, and i'm pretty sure i have no shot since their average stats are unbelievably better than mine. The Ohio State program is perfect for me though, I could really use the year in between to enhance my study skills...

...I'm confused. You interviewed there for the MEDPATH program? Or the regular M.D. program?

Regardless, what did you think of OSU's medical program?

Have you gotten any acceptances to other M.D. programs?

I have a question guys. In order to apply to programs like Ohio STate's Medpath and Georgetowns' GEMS, do you have to already applied to med school thru AMCAS? Or do they have seperate applications? I know the GEMS has seperate application, but they require you to have been denied admission or soemthin like that.?

What about ohio STate's Medpath?

Well MEDPATH like GEMS requires an application to apply to their program.

Anyone who applies to Georgetown through AMCAS can apply to GEMS - but they note that they are moslty seeking individuals who are minorities, economically disadvataged, etc. However, for MEDPATH you have to be invited - a invitation that usually comes after they tell you, you have failed to gain entry to the casual MD program.

Keep in mind though, the deadline to turn in the MEDPATH application for this cycle has already came and went ( I think it was feb. 16th). But the GEMS application deadline is in March (I wanna say the 16th as well actually)...

Did you get a chance to apply to either!?!? =)

No, I am taking my first official MCAT this May, so I dont have an AAMC app. I thought maybe they didn't require it to apply to GEMS or MEDPATH. I know there is another program in IL called MEDPREP, which is a postbacc for minorities that does not even require the MCAT to apply. Anyway, best of luck to all of you who applied. Let us know how it turns out!
