    i applied to 2 DO schools, no MD schools, and was offered interviews at both. i was accepted to LECOM and am waiting to hear from PCSOM. If the Gods of osteopathic medicine smile on me, I will be going to PCSOM. good luck to all who have yet to interview. i hope my list of questions helps..

    I can say that your list will be a great help to thsoe of us who will soon be applying to medical school.

    Have you thought of posting your information on www.interviewfeedback.com?

    Then, you could be helping people who don't access this site.

    Best of luck in school!
