    Hi I have applied to 1 DO school (CCOM) and I have not received any love from the MD's I was wondering if it was too late to apply to any more DO schools. Has anyone applied after the initial app. I know it is not as easy as adding schools in the AMCAS app. Do you think it is too late?
    thanks for the help

    Schools have deadlines coming up but it is not too late to apply to additional schools. The key is that you already have your AACOMAS app done and all you need to do is write them with the additional schools that you want to have your app sent to and send in the additional money.

    Deadlines:

    December 1 : Michigan
    January 2: AZCOM, CCOM, UNECOM, WVCOM
    January 6: OHIO
    January 15: NOVA, COMP,OSUCOM
    February 1: DMU, UHS, Pikeville, KCOM, LECOM, New Jersey, NY, PCOM
    February 15: TUCOM

    Don't know about EVCOM since they just started applications a few weeks ago.

    I would hurry up.

    Your situation isn't that great...applying this late and scrambling.

    The Adcoms will pick up on that.

    You may have to wait it out a year and convince them you want to be a DO.

    But just because you can't get into an MD school doesn't mean DO schools will snag you.

    Doesn't work like that, my friend.

    If I remember correctly EVCOM said they are taking apps till March.

    I'd wait a year if I were you. DO is not a "backup" plan in any way. If you do get interviews nearly everyone you run across will nail you with ton's of questions making sure you know what osteopathic medicine is and why you want to be DO specifically.
