It got me really excited, although all this financial aid crap is a drain... Does anyone know where they're going to live? I currently live right by the art museum--if you're up for a drink, lemme know!

Seriously..I dont think so. AACOMAS takes 3-4 weeks. Then you have to wait to recieve your secondary. Then you would have to wait another 2 or more weeks for PCOM to review your file. Then hopefully get an interview invite. That is putting you somewhere around march (on a good day). I wish you the best of luck..I believe they are interviewing in april..but most likely for waitlist spots. Just have everything ready man. If you are close...drop off your secondary application & fee by hand.ppormansdoormd said:hey guys, i just applied to PCOM via AACOMAS on 01/17, do you guys think i have any chance of getting an interview invite with an MCAT of 23O, 3.45 overall g.p.a and science and non-science around 3.40
I wish I knew that before I decided to graduate. Damn.JonnyG said:If you can sing it take histology before you get to PCOM and get a B or better in the class. No name U, community college all work. The department allows you to place out of the pratical portion of the class by taking a test during orientation. You have to get an 80 or better and that becomes your whenever there is a histology pratical. This allows you to get 25% of your grade done before classes start. The place out test is designed for you to pass and they give a review the day before the test that shows you Everything that will be on the test. You have tot kae histology and get at least a B to be able to take the test. It makes life so much easier because the test is much easier than the other praticals and frees up more time for the anatomy portion of SPOM.
You should not take the summer biochem course and find a histology course at a local school. This can be taken anywhere. This course is more valuable then summer biochem.DO Sigma Nu guy said:I wish I knew that before I decided to graduate. Damn.

I am telling you man...look at star trek, no latinos! you know what that means? They just weren't planning to have us around in the future...
DO Sigma Nu guy said:HAHAHA...yea thats true. It was funny because my father checked the list out..and asked me if there were any hispanics that I know there. I found 1 or two...but you really can't go by last name...I have an american last name...my spanish name is my two middle names...kinda weird.
