Can I choose to apply directly to an osteopathic medical school that participates in AACOMAS, rather than apply through AACOMAS?
No. Schools do not process your applications directly, unless you are in a special program, and were given specific instructions. Many schools do require secondary application materials, which you should send directly to the school. The school will send you instructions. UNTHSC applicants must apply though the TMDSAS Application Service.

How can I find out the status of my application?
You can find the status through the AACOMAS online application status check. Log in to your account and click on the Application tab.
AACOMAS normally processes an application in three to six weeks from the time the application is complete. Your application is ďcompleteĒ when AACOMAS has received all required transcripts and your application. Once your application has been verified,you will be able to view your calculated GPA through the status check link available after logging on to the application service. Your application will be sent to your designated colleges shortly thereafter.

I applied last year and am reapplying. Can you use my application or transcripts from last year?
Use your user name and password from your prior yearís application. You will be given the option to roll your data forward into a new application for 2011. Follow the instructions in the online application.

I plan to enter medical school next fall. When should I apply and what are the deadlines?
You should apply approximately one year in advance. For the entering class of fall of a given year, AACOMAS will begin accepting applications in June of the prior year. Each of the colleges has its own deadlines for receipt of applications by AACOMAS. The earliest AACOMAS college deadline is December 1, 2010, for admission to the fall 2011 entering class. The collegesí latest deadline typically is April 1. AACOMAS recommends that you apply early, at least six weeks prior to the collegeís deadlines. Most of the colleges make admissions decisions on a rolling basis, meaning they review applications, conduct interviews and make admissions decisions throughout the admissions cycle. Interview slots and even classes may be filledifyou apply too close to the deadline. Depending on the number of applications received and the time of year, it may take AACOMAS up to six weeks to process applications.

Iím having my transcripts sent to your office. Do I really need to list each of my courses on my application?
Yes. For each course, you will provide some of the same information as is listed on your transcript. You also will list additional information that classifiesthe course by subject area. AACOMAS will check the information against your transcripts, and a copy of this course record will be forwarded as part of your application to your designated colleges. Failure to fully complete the course record may result in your application being returned to you or may delay the processing of your application.

How long will it take for my application to be processed and sent to my designated schools?
Although the time frame varies, AACOMAS normally processes applications in three to six weeks. Missing transcripts and/or receipt of large volumes of materials in the AACOMAS office can affect this time frame. If you do not see transcripts posted to your account two weeks after they were sent, please contact AACOMAS to make sure that your materials have been received. You should allow four weeks after submitting your application and all transcripts for processing before contacting AACOMAS regarding the status of your application. Once your application status reflects that your materials have been processed and released to your designated schools, please allow at least 10 working days for your materials to reach and be processed by the schools.

Iím having difficulty entering my personal statementóany suggestions?
You may want to create your personal statement in a separate text editing program (Wordpad or MS Write; you should not use Microsoft Word because it adds formatting codes to your text), then copy and paste the statement into your application.

When can I submit my application? Can I submit it before you have received my transcripts and/or official MCAT scores?
You can submit your application from June 1, 2010 until the deadline for the schools to which you want to apply. You need not wait until your official transcripts and/or MCAT scores are received to submit your application to AACOMAS. You may start your application on May 1, 2010.

Can I get a refund if I miss a schoolís deadline?
No. Once an application is submitted, processing of the application begins. No refunds of the application fee will be made.

Do I have recommendation letters sent to you?
No. Recommendation letters should be sent directly to the schools to which you are applying or through one of the recommendation services such as VirtualEval or
Interfolio.

How do I send my official MCAT scores to AACOMAS?
MCAT scores must be sent electronically from MCAT in order to be considered official. You can log into your MCAT account via the MCAT Testing History (THx)

System and have your scores released to AACOMAS. Scores are sent to AACOMAS using your eight digit AAMC/MCAT number as identification (This number generally begins with a 0 or 1.)

When will my GPA be calculated?
