    Since I am bored and have a lot of extra food, I don't mind feeding for a second before this gets moved/closed.


    1. If you are interested in becoming a DO, I would recommend you take the MCAT for the next application cycle as opposed to the PCAT. Unfortunately, the number of DO schools that are accepting the PCAT in place of the MCAT this year hasn't risen, and recent studies do not project they will anytime in the near future.
    2. Another study that I happened to glance at over the break recently showed that applications to pharmacy programs do not equate to medical school applications, even when they're in the same building. Much like the PCAT numbers, the amount DO schools accepting pharamcy applications is holding steady and the chance that it will change in your favor is quite bleak.
    3. You mentioned that you wanted to "send this pm," but maybe we should investigate what exactly a "PM" is. According to Wikipedia, a PM is "A personal message or private message, often shortened to PM, is like an e-mail sent from one Internet forum or bulletin board system user to another user on the same forum." Generally, one would not consider a "post" to be the same as a "PM" in context: they would consider it a "post."
    If you are looking to apply to medical school for the next application cycle, I would recommend the following links:

    The last one maybe not so much, but I find it helpful for me to look at whenever I am stressed out. Good luck to you in your endeavors and with your application next cycle.

    Good luck.

    If you have a real question about what you should do to gain admission to a DO school, ask a question in the What Are My Chances? thread.

    Closing.
