Admissions Process: AACOMAS On-line is available early May 2006, for the 2007 entering class. All application materials, including detailed instructions, can be accessed through the AACOM website, http://www.aacom.org. AACOMAS gathers all the necessary material about each applicant and transmits the information in a standardized format to the college(s) of osteopathic medicine selected by the applicant. AACOMAS has no participation in the selection process. The applicant will receive from AACOMAS a computer-generated applicant profile with a calculation of GPA and MCAT averages. KCUMB also will receive the applicant profile, accompanied by a photocopy of the AACOMAS application and personal statement. KCUMB conducts an initial review of the transmitted AACOMAS application, MCAT scores, and academic record to determine which applications will be further processed. Applicants meeting the initial review criteria will receive a KCUMB supplemental application. A supplemental application may be forwarded to an applicant under some circumstances when specific information is not available or will be submitted later. These circumstances generally relate to applicants who have not taken the MCAT and/or are registered to take the next scheduled MCAT exam. Applicants are encouraged to include the scheduled MCAT test dates on the AACOMAS application to indicate the intent of taking or retaking the exam.
