    I'm from an upper midwest state with no DO medical schools. Are there any schools in the midwest that prefer students like me?

    I live in Wisconsin and I have gotten love from DMU, KCUMB, and MUCOM. I did not apply to CCOM but I imagine they would have shown me some love. I imagine KCOM would be interested too.

    None of the other schools on the east coast have offered interviews. Coincidence?
