Did anyone who applied for the masters program make it off of the waitlist for the DO program? I'm on the waitlist and afraid of applying for the masters program because they might accept me for masters and give the DO spot to someone else
Hey guys, so I don't have an undergraduate degree. I just complete my Doctor of Pharmacy degree at Rutgers University with a 3.066 GPA. I don't really know how to calculate my science gpa because I didn't take the traditional undergraduate route and I was in a 6 year program. I am really interested in applying for this post bacc program and I would like other's feedback if i would be a competitive candidate.
If I calculate my science GPA using biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics, it is only a 2.4 (due to circumstances I did not do as well during my first few years in college). however this does not take into account all the science classes I took for the pharmacy major and I am not sure if they count as science
I have good ECs, A lot of clinical and work experience since I am a pharmacy major.
I still need to take the MCAT.
If anyone can give feedback I would greatly appreciate it!!
Ok thank you I did this! Also for the "acceptance form" did you just print out what they sent, check the box, scan it, and email it to them? We didn't have to sign anything right? Sorry I know this is straightforward I just want to make sure I did everything right since its due tomorrow and they didnt call/email me backThere is a link for a 2000 deposit (1st deposit) and one for a 1000 deposit (2nd deposit).

This financial aid stuff is really confusing to me for some reason. I put in Touro College into the entrance counseling form on the studentloans.gov site, but the COA is no where close to what the actual cost is. What am I doing wrong?
Congrats, look forward to meeting everyone!Accepted off the Middletown waitlist today. Interviewed 3/27, waitlisted 5/05. Major underdog, took the MCAT more than a few times..completed the MS program at Harlem last year. This has been several years in the making and I'm deliriously happy right now. Looking forward to starting school soon!
Hi everyone! I was recently accepted to TouroCOM Middletown and thought I'd make an account to share some info as I stalked SDN before and it helped me for sure.
I applied with a 3.25 science GPA, 3.3 undergrad GPA, 3.85 masters GPA, 26 MCAT (501?)
I received an II in October, and interviewed in November. I was Waitlisted in December.
I came off the Wait List in June (about a week ago)
I sent in many update letters and kept in close touch with Frank Rose. He is an AMAZING person. He told me to email him once a week showing interest, which I did. He is honestly one of the nicest guys I've ever met and is genuinely looking to help applicants out, so shoot him an email!
I will also be withdrawing my seat, so I hope it goes to one of you on here! Best of luck with the process and keep sending emails!
I had a similar experience with sending update letters. As per a suggestion I received from the Admissions mailbox, I sent in an "update letter" every month after I was waitlisted (update in quotes because how many times can you reword 'hey, I'm still around and still interested'??). Asking someone to send weekly e-mails for months is a complete joke but good on you for having the persistence to keep that up! It's absurd but if that's the difference between getting an acceptance or not then I guess you gotta do what you gotta do...
Yeah Middletown has protected rotation sites, as does Harlem. I'm assuming Harlem's urban sites are being pushed out by other schools.Are you sure about that? I thought they shared most, but places like ORMC gave priority to Middletown... but they were pretty flexible? Eh what do I know.
Is it possible to rotate at sites intended for students of the other campus? I was considering Middletown because of the location and facilities but after viewing that link, I'm not sure I'm happy with their rotation sites as compared to Harlem's.
