    PCOM's secondary application asks for an optional letter of recommendation from a D.O., which is--albeit optional--strongly encouraged.

    Does anyone know how or when PCOM reviews applications without this letter, but with the other required letters of recommendation? Is it a different process, or is it truly optional?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    I applied to PCOM this year without a letter of rec. from a D.O. Instead, I had the Athletic Trainer A.T.C. who I worked with for 3 years write me the medical letter of rec. I sent in my secondary application in December and they asked me to interview about three weeks later. I interviewed on Feb 5th and was accepted a few days ago! So, to answer your question, it appears that we without letters from a D.O. do go through the same process as those with a D.O. letter, and yes, I am proof that it is truly optional. Hope this helps. Good luck!
