Guaranteed Interview with TUCOM California

MSMHS students are guaranteed an interview with the College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) during the next application cycle provided they satisfy the following criteria:

  • Follow the normal application process for the College of Osteopathic Medicine, which will include submission of a new primary application through AACOMAS, new secondary application, letters of recommendation and all other required documents.  COM application information may be found by visiting the COM admissions website.
  • Earn a composite (total) Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) score of 490 or higher.  Scores must be obtained within three years of the start of the application cycle during which you would be interviewing.
  • Earn a MSMHS program GPA of 3.00 or 80% (weighted by course units) or higher at the time of the interview.

Admission to medical school is very competitive; MSMHS students with a GPA and MCAT score in excess of these minimum requirements will face a much better chance of gaining admission to the College of Osteopathic Medicine.  Timing of the COM interview will be dependent upon individual circumstances, together with academic performance in the MSMHS program.  Students are strongly encouraged to work closely with their MSMHS Academic Advisor and/or Program Director while considering when they should interview. 

MSMHS students who qualify are only guaranteed one interview with the medical school.  

To avoid unexpected delays, all MSMHS students who plan to apply to the College of Osteopathic Medicine should apply by no later than February 1st and should notify the Office of Admissions ( once their AACOMAS application has been submitted.
