I applied to six DO schools and have received secondaries from all six. They are currently sitting in my inbox as I work on my MD secondaries. I've read that the DO cycle is longer than the MD cycle, so it isn't as critical to have everything complete by August. If I were not to submit my DO secondaries until mid September, would I still be early? Or should I push to get them all in this month? Also, I heard that DO schools require you to make decision and put a large security deposit in within two weeks of an acceptance? Is this true at all DO schools? Or do only several schools do this? The DO schools I am applying to are: DMU KCUMB Western ATSU-KCOM PCOM Touro-CA Do these schools have the two-week policy requiring a large deposit? This will help me decide whether to submit secondaries/interview at DO schools earlier the October 15 date, which is when MD schools are allowed to release acceptances. Thanks!
