    Does anyone know what the word limit for the PCOM secondary is? Can someone verify the topic? Is it why "osteopathic medicine" ? Or is it "why PCOM"?

    A. I dont know the word limit.

    B. I understood it to ask us both questions. Why DO and why PCOM.

    I have a question about the secondary as well. Would it be alright for me to feed the piece of paper through my printer to print out the essays and then hand write everything on the other side.

    I dont have a typewriter and cannot get access to one.

    They told me that I could type 1 page. Since they were not specific, I assume that this is a standard font 12 point single spaced.

    The essay topic on my secondary was:

    "On the reverse side of this application, write a statement indicating why you wish to become an osteopathic physician. Indicate specific reasons why you want to attend Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine."

    Sheesh....
    Well, I'll tell you what I did...To me is seemed the 'why DO?' question was for the essay while the 'why PCOM?' was for the little space underneath the 'Indicate...' statement.
    My essay was on why do and I listed with bullets my reasons for why PCOM.
    My application is complete, so I guess it works. But who knows how one will react to that.

    poop.


    thanx

    How do you find out if your application has been processed or is "complete" at PCOM?
