    I was accepted there with similar stats. You'll be fine. CCOM is a great school. Having a hard time choosing where I want to go and CCOM is definitely in the mix. Good luck. :thumbup:

    I got in with similar GPA, but less MCAT score. I think you'll be fine.

    You'll get an interview for sure. Whether they accept you will depend on how well your interview goes, but academically, you are fine. I had similar stats to you and I had no problems getting in. Are you applying for next year? I know it's easier to get in if you apply earlier so the late application may be a mark against you, but you can always try again next year if this year they waitlist/reject you.

    Your numbers look great so I am sure you will score an interview there. The interview itself could be intimidating. I applied with less stellar numbers but got in nevertheless. All you need to do is to make sure you know why you want to do DO and why CCOM. It is okay to show that personable side of you during interview as well. Don't be too emotional or dramatic, just be comfortable with yourself and what you have to offer. I am sure you will be great! I am extremely happy to go there this fall. Hope to see you there! :)
