If you are applying to medical school through the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service®* (AACOMAS®), you can submit your application soon!

What are the major differences between AACOMAS® and The American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®)?

1) The AACOMAS® personal statement can be up to 4500 characters (including spaces) whereas the AMCAS® personal statement can be up to 5300 (including spaces) and explicitly state “why DO.”

2) AACOMAS® experience descriptions are 600 characters (versus 700 for AMCAS). 

3) Letters of Reference should be sent directly to osteopathic medical schools rather than to AACOMAS®.
