    I also applied to this program. I am very interested in osteopathic medicine, and really like the idea of an early interview. How nice would it be to avoid the hassle of having to apply with the general population. I believe the email they sent said they were going to start evaluating applicants after may 5. Best of luck to everyone.

    I applied as well! I am out of state so hopefully that does not hurt my chances. Anyone know how many people applied this year? I think a thread from last year said 80 applications were completed for ~20 spots.

    Not sure about this year, but I would guess that the number continues to increase each year as more students become interested in osteopathic medicine.

    Good luck everyone! I was lucky enough to be a summer scholar last year and have nothing but good things to say about the program and OU. The institution in general is a true gem. Some you already have, but feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

    I was hoping for earlier decisions. I recently was accepted to another SURF program and was given to the end of march to decline or accept the offer. I really don't want to turn down a sure thing, but OU-HCOM is one of my top choices...... I guess I will have to see if i can get an extension.

    Hey Leggo, I would call OUCOM and talk to Michelle or Dr. Schriner, they are both incredibly helpful...let them know about your situation....maybe they could speed up the process for all of us :D

    That would be glorious if they could speed up the process for all of us! I'm so excited to find out if I'm in or not. Everybody has been so friendly and the program seems like a great way into OU-HCOM! Are you guys looking into any other schools?

    I was in the same situation as Leggo, I had a job offer that started in June. I was told by the company that I had two weeks to accept. I called OUCOM and they were very accommodating

    Im considering ou pretty heavily since I'm from Ohio and it's just like our little hidden gem when it comes to med schools lol. Seriously it needs more notariety! After talking to students there it just seems like the perfect fit! But with that bein said I'm also considering other schools so I don't put all my eggs in one basket. Did u guys already take the mcat or is anyone taking it in may?

    OU grads can be found in almost every major medical center in the state of Ohio. Soon when we open up our Columbus branch campus in 2014 and also a third branch campus sometime later with The Cleveland Clinic in Northeast Ohio, people all over the state will start taking more notice. But don't forget it all started here in Athens!

    No reply here either. I really was interested in OUHCOM's program, but waiting till the second week of april (or beyond...who knows?) when applications closed March 1 (for only 70 applicants) is ridiculous. OU should realize that applicants have probably applied to several summer programs, programs that are not willing to extend acceptance offers past a couple of weeks. I was lucky to gain acceptance to another SURP program, and since i was unwilling to forgo a sure thing, I will not be attending OU this summer. This is very unfortunate as OU was my top choice.

    I wish you all the best of luck, and will keep everyone posted of my final status at OU.

    Hello,

    I just recently applied for the Summer Scholars Program at OUHCOM and I was wondering when did you find out if you got in?
     
  39. basketballgirl1,

    I also applied this year and I'm getting pretty anxious since they initially said "early April" we'd hear back from them about decisions. However, they have had a change in administration (I believe it's due to the OU expansion project) so we won't be getting a response until "mid April". I'm guessing this is any day now (I'm thinking next Friday at the latest). Good Luck !!! Hopefully, we'll get an acceptance soon !
