    Summary of Application Experience

    Applying to only DO schools. Unfortunately, I\'ve submitted my application late due to obstacles in retrieving my LORs from my undergrad. I\'m very realistic and therefore doubtful I\'ll hear anything from anywhere due to my super low MCAT score and a low science GPA. Hoping other things in the application jump out. We\'ll see! 8/25/10

    11/29/10 -- Rejected from Western U almost immediately. Decided to only go forward with RVUCOM, AZCOM, CCOM, NYCOM, PCOM, UNE, and Touro, due to not having a DO letter (have an MD letter though). Hoping and praying for some good news. ahh!

    2/4/11 -- AZCOM put me on hold in January, no word yet. No word from PCOM, UNECOM or NYCOM. CCOM sent me a letter telling me I could transfer my application to a masters or PsychD program for no extra fee.
