    I'll be applying as well, once the application opens! If I got in, it'd be one of my top choices, it's one of the closer programs to where I live now so it would be nice to go there.

    Quick question for those who have applied. Did any of you drastically change your personal statements? I had the typical "Your career goals and why you want to go here" written out, but on Toledo's site they claim that a *new* one different from the AMCAS personal statement must be submitted.

    I'm worried that they want me to touch more on why I'm attending an SMP (e.g. my faults/deficiencies etc.) rather than going to med school. Any input?

    They just want you to be program specific. Tell them what you expect to acheive at there SMP and why you selected to go there.

    I wonder if it even matters when you apply. I got an e-mail confirmation saying that they won't look at apps until the beginning of June and release decisions by June/July (so they're not rolling?). Really sucks since one of the programs I got into has a May 18th deadline (USF) so I probably won't wait around for Toledo.

    Does anyone know what kind of stats admissions committee is looking for this program, and possibly how competitive it is? I applied with a 29P and 3.52 cgpa, if anyone else doesn't mind sharing stats please post! Good luck everyone.

    when you submitted may 1st did you submit the application only or did you end up sending in your LORS and mcat scores later?

    i wont be able to send them my mcat score till beginning of june


    i think the personal statement has to be different but regarding letter it can be the same as med schools

    Long wait here. They are not reviewing until June. I got waitlisted over at Cinny and they are all ready starting to accept the top tier of the waitlist there so I am hoping by May 15ish I will know more about Cinny but I will still be waiting on U Tol. Having to wait half way through the summer to hear back anything is not what I was hoping for but I have good feelings about UT.

    42/51 made it in this years class (however, I'm sure there are a couple who will not accept their acceptance due to others).

    With grade forgiveness 3.39/ 3.38 science (for DO schools)
    Without grade forgiveness... 3.1/ 3.1 science With Multiple mcat scores but most recent is 32Q. Ones before that were 23 and a 26. I have a boat load of EC including being an emergency department scribe, got some great experience out of that one and a ton of time being a tutor ( which is what I do now) in math and science from college level to 5th grade. I also have lots of independent physician shadowing, campus club involvement, clinical volunteering in a childrens clinic and vollunteering in the community as a tutor in homeless shelters. I just wish my grades were better.

    I just hate the wait because I have been waitlisted at Cinni and EVMS smps but this is because I applied deadlast minute waiting for that MCAT score to come in. I am Mid tier on the Cinni waitlist and I have no idea about EVMS.

    From looking at last year's thread, it seems like the first wave of acceptance will be coming out the end of next week :(
    I wonder how many people applied to this program. Given how late they are when it comes to giving out acceptance, I hope not many will stick around :p
    Accept me already so I can start the apartment search :p


    Do they reject people for an average/mediocre statement of purpose?:scared: I wrote mine the night before the deadline +pity+

    Yeah next week results should be showing up... I wouldn't worry to much but U Tol often gets "rejected med applicants" so they can be some what competitive but not to much. We all should be fine and this is a great program from what I have seen so far.

    Hopefully we will hear something from them next week

    From looking at previous years there will probably be a second round of acceptances in the next two weeks once they figure out how many spots are left from the first round of acceptances. I personally didn't receive any email today either :(
