Quick Question from a Non-traditional Applicant

Postby kdbmedic » Wed Apr 06, 2011 2:10 pm

I have a quick question. Does anyone know if D.O. schools require that your prerequisites be completed within the past 5 years? I've searched most of the D.O. admissions websites and cannot find anything related to the matter. Regardless of whether it's required, is it highly recommended?

no official dates, its unofficial 10 years

5 years is not even MD schools because its easy to have 5 years to pass to get the BS degree and if you go on to a Masters then thats 7

the 10 year is like from Graduation to now, in some cases that may mean 15 years since Chem 101 :shock:
