The Faculty Committee on DO Admissions reviews all applications holistically, considering
all aspects of the application and its supporting materials.
A guaranteed interview does not guarantee a seat in the DO program or that the interview
will occur early in the admissions cycle.
Official PCOM Transcripts
The DO Faculty Committee on Admissions cannot access student records in other programs,
even those at PCOM. Applicants are solely responsible for submitting official transcripts
to the Office of Admissions as necessary, such as at completion of a course or term.
Currently enrolled students can request a transcript online through myPCOM's "Self-Service" menu.
An MCAT total score in the 50th percentile or higher and at least 40th percentile
in each section (MCAT2015) is recommended. Applicants not meeting these criteria may
be encouraged to retake the test. At the mid-point of the first year, students will
be reminded of these criteria for competitive MCAT scores.
Depending on the circumstances, students may be encouraged to postpone application
and take the MCAT after completing the first year of the biomedical sciences program.
These policies and guidelines are effective for the admissions cycle listed in the
document title, and are subject to change for subsequent years.
