The Application Process

This page contains information about the 澳门女人味 Application Service (澳门女人味AS) but does not contain application instructions.

To successfully submit your application, you must read all .

How to Get Started

The 澳门女人味 Application Service (澳门女人味AS) is the centralized application service for U.S. osteopathic medical schools. 澳门女人味AS enables applicants to complete one application and submit it with required information to programs participating in the centralized service.

澳门女人味AS verifies your coursework for accuracy and sends the application and supplemental materials to the medical colleges you designate in the application. The service reduces the number of initial application forms, transcripts and fees required and streamlines the verification of your academic information.

Check out 澳门女人味’s Choose DO Explorer to learn more about the participating medical colleges.

The Choose DO Explorer contains a profile of each osteopathic med school, including a brief description of the campus and the curriculum, admissions criteria, minimum entrance requirements, class size and enrollment, supplemental application material requirements, application deadlines and information on tuition and fees.

Because information in the Choose DO Explorer is subject to change, be sure to visit each college’s website to view their most recent catalog or contact the colleges directly. The colleges reserve the right to alter requirements for admission at their discretion.

Note to Applicants

Apply early and read all application directions carefully to avoid delays.

While application processing begins in June, colleges of osteopathic medicine make admissions decisions on a rolling basis. This means they review applications, conduct interviews, and make admissions decisions throughout the admissions cycle.

Keep in mind that interview slots may be awarded and/or classes may be filled if you apply close to the deadlines. Submitting materials early and accurately will support timely processing and help avoid delays.

Your 澳门女人味AS application must be submitted and all official transcripts for completed coursework must be postmarked on or before the college application deadlines.

Accessing the Application

The 澳门女人味AS online application is designed to easily guide applicants through the osteopathic medical school application process. It is located at .

澳门女人味AS supports the latest versions of all major Internet browsers. To successfully complete the 澳门女人味AS application, you must review all online application instructions in addition to the content of this publication. View the application instructions.

 


Official MCAT Scores

Colleges of medicine require official scores from the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). You must contact AAMC to have your official MCAT scores released to 澳门女人味AS. MCAT scores are not released to 澳门女人味AS automatically. Once released, MCAT scores are sent to 澳门女人味AS electronically from AAMC and matched to your application using your name, date of birth, and AAMC ID. Paper copies are not accepted.

To forward your MCAT scores to 澳门女人味AS

  1. Log into the MCAT Score Reporting System and select 澳门女人味 App Serv as a recipient of your scores to ensure that your scores will be transmitted to 澳门女人味AS.
  2. Your MCAT scores are transmitted electronically to 澳门女人味AS and is linked to your 澳门女人味AS record using your full name and the eight-digit MCAT/AAMC number assigned when you register for the MCAT.
  3. Be sure that you accurately enter the eight-digit MCAT/AAMC number in your 澳门女人味AS application. Providing the wrong number, name, or date of birth will delay the transmission of your scores to the colleges. It takes approximately 10-12 days to process official MCAT scores once they are released to 澳门女人味AS from AAMC.

Academic History and Transcripts

You are required to report to 澳门女人味AS all institutions attended, including but not limited to college-level courses taken in high school, summer courses, community college courses, undergraduate institutions, military institutions, postbaccalaureate, graduate, and doctoral work, study abroad, foreign work, etc. Failure to report an institution or any courses taken at an institution runs the risk of your application being sent back to you by our verification staff who will require you to report and provide a transcript for the missing institution or course(s). This can significantly delay the processing of your application.

You must request the registrar of each institution you have attended to submit one complete set of official transcripts directly to 澳门女人味AS. Include all institutions in foreign countries, U.S. territories, and possessions that are operated by U.S. institutions. Student copies of transcripts or copies sent by the applicant are not acceptable. Transfer credit(s) appearing on a transcript cannot be accepted in lieu of an original transcript from the institution where the coursework was completed. See the online   for more details on submitting Foreign, French Canadian, Study Abroad, and Overseas transcripts.

澳门女人味AS accepts transcripts electronically from a limited number of electronic transcript services. A list of these services can be found in the 澳门女人味AS application instructions. If your school does not use these services, you must provide transcripts to 澳门女人味AS via paper mailing. Transcripts should be sent (via U.S. Mail or expedited delivery service) to:

澳门女人味AS Transcript Processing Center
P.O. Box 9137
Watertown, MA 02471


Application Fees

The fee for using 澳门女人味AS varies according to the number of colleges you designate when you submit your application. You may subsequently request that we send your application to more schools after initial submission. Payment may be made by credit/debit card only. Application materials will not be processed until payment is received. Currently, the application fee is $198 and includes submission to one designated college. Add $57 for each additional designation.


Early Decision Program

Applicants may apply to those osteopathic medical colleges that offer an Early Decision Program (EDP) and will be informed about the outcome of their application early enough to apply to other schools through the regular process. EDP applicants agree to apply to only one medical college through the process. If offered an EDP acceptance, they must attend that college.

The decision to apply through the EDP should be made carefully. While criteria vary among the colleges regarding their requirements, a frequent standard is that only those applicants who display exceptional credentials are admitted through the EDP process. Applicants considering an EDP application should contact the medical college admissions office for more specific information. The following colleges offer EDPs:

  • A.T. Still University Kirksville COM (ATSU-KCOM)
  • Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace SOM (CUSOM)
  • Marian University COM (MU-COM)
  • Rowan-Virtua SOM (Rowan-Virtua SOM)
  • Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM-NY/MT)
  • University of North Texas Health Science Center/Texas COM (UNTHSC/TCOM)
  • Edward Via COM (VCOM)


Application Traffic Guidelines

澳门女人味 encourages each of its member colleges to conduct an application process that is inclusive and professional.

The purpose of these guidelines is to allow prospective students to explore their options with the osteopathic medical community and to give the colleges of osteopathic medicine (COMs) the ability to process, select and matriculate applicants in a fair and timely manner.


  1. COMs will publish and follow an application schedule.
  2. COMs will publish their respective application procedures and admission requirements.
  3. COMs may begin extending offers of admission at any time after the interview.

    Applicants will be asked to submit necessary matriculation documents, including a deposit, according to the following 澳门女人味AS traffic guideline schedule:
    • Those accepted prior to November 15 will have until December 14.
    • Those accepted between November 15 and January 14 will have 30 days.
    • Those accepted between January 15 and April 30 will have 14 days.
    • Those accepted on or after May 1 may be asked for an immediate deposit.
    • After May 1 of the year of matriculation, each medical college may implement college-specific procedures for accepted students who hold one or more seats at other medical colleges.

Starting April 1, osteopathic medical colleges are asked to report to 澳门女人味AS the names and identification of candidates who have paid a deposit, hold a position at an osteopathic medical college entering class or both.

After May 1, 澳门女人味AS reports to each institution the names and candidates for its entering class who hold an acceptance(s) at additional institutions.

An osteopathic medical college may rescind an offer of admissions to a candidate who has paid deposits to or holds positions at multiple institutions.

  • If the osteopathic medical college chooses to withdraw the candidate from the entering class, the college must give the candidate notice in writing.  
  • If the candidate does not respond and is withdrawn from a college, the deposit is forfeited, and the seat may be given to another candidate.

Therefore, prior to May 1, applicants need to withdraw from any college(s) which they do not plan to attend and only hold a position at one COM to avoid having positions withdrawn.

Prospective osteopathic medical students are expected to provide factual, accurate and complete information throughout the admissions process. 澳门女人味 believes that the process requires mutual respect, integrity, and honesty among the COMs, and between colleges and their prospective osteopathic medical students.

 


Letters of Recommendation

All colleges of osteopathic medicine require letters of evaluation/recommendation. Letters may be submitted electronically through the 澳门女人味AS application or directly to the schools using alternative services indicated by each school in the Choose DO Explorer. Alternative services may include, but are not limited to:

  • Interfolio
  • VirtualEvals
  • U.S. mail

Many programs have strict guidelines for submitting letters and requirements vary from school to school. Be sure to check with each osteopathic medical college before submitting letters of recommendation. For more information about submitting letters directly through 澳门女人味AS, please refer to the 


Applicant Protocol

Applicants aspiring to become osteopathic physicians are expected to act professionally in their interactions with 澳门女人味AS and with each college of medicine. Responsibility, respect, good judgment, professional communication, and cooperation are qualities that are valued by the osteopathic medical profession, and it is expected that applicants will demonstrate these qualities throughout the application process.

  1. Applicants are expected to become familiar with admission requirements, follow application procedures, and meet all deadlines at each school to which they apply.
  2. Applicants are responsible for the collection and timely submission of supplemental applications, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and all applicable fees. All candidates who submit a supplemental application and subsequently complete the application process (submitting all required materials) are considered for admission by the colleges to which they submit a complete application. Applicants are encouraged to review the online application instructions and the colleges’ online program pages to determine the standards and processes for the colleges to which they are applying.
  3. Applicants are responsible for reporting and updating any changes in the initially submitted application (e.g., address, telephone number, academic status, and state of residence).
  4. Applicants are responsible for responding promptly to all interview invitations and offers of admission (either to accept or to decline).
  5. Applicants who have made a final decision regarding the medical school they plan to attend have an obligation to promptly withdraw their applications from all other schools.

Spam Blocking & Technical Compatibility

It is the applicant’s responsibility to meet compatibility requirements for computer systems involved in the application process. Requirements for 澳门女人味AS online include Internet access and a web browser that is configured to allow pop-up windows and other features of the secure online application. (Pop-up blocking software must be properly configured or turned off.) In addition, the email address that you provide should not filter out communications regarding your application. (Spam filtering must be properly configured or disabled.) Please use a permanent email address, not one that will expire when you graduate.
