    Im a texas resident and I know that TCOM accepts 90% residents only, so I read somewhere. I was wondering how hard it is to get into an out of state DO school such at the one located in Oklahoma or Arizona if Im out of state?

    If you're applying to a public out-of-state DO school, it will be considerably more difficult than applying to a private out-of-state DO school. You'll have a much easier time with AZCOM than OSUCOM. Remember, the purpose of state medical schools is to produce physicians who, hopefully, will practice in that state. Hence, they're leery of out-of-state applicants. If you're a stellar applicant, however, you shouldn't have a problem anywhere.

    Im not very sure. I have a weak gpa when my old schools is computed in. I have volunteered in a nursing home and hospital and worked for 2 internests(1 my father :) ). Someone suggest I become an EMT or CNA after I completed the MCAT.

    I was looking at TCOM early acceptance because the more I learn about the school the more I want to go there. But Im a little nervous about applying there early acceptance because it says that they have to be the only school I apply to?


    thanks for teh replies though. If I dont do the early acceptance Im definatly applying to azcom and the oklahoma school.
