    The ODU-to-OU Medical School Early Acceptance Program is an exciting opportunity for students to earn their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree in as few as seven years. Please carefully review the program’s admission requirements described below. 

    Note: only first-time freshmen will be considered for the program. 

    • You must be admitted to Ohio Dominican University through general admission prior to March 14, 2014, to be considered for the program. We encourage you to apply to ODU and submit your required academic documents (e.g., high school transcript, ACT/SAT scores, post-secondary transcripts) early to avoid missing the deadline.

    • Because of the highly competitive nature of this program, a group of 20 to 25 finalists will be selected after the deadline. We will schedule interviews with these finalists. We anticipate accepting 10 candidates into the program.
    • If you’re accepted into the program, you must maintain at least a 3.7 GPA at ODU, with at least a 3.6 GPA in all science courses. Required course work must be at a grade of B- or better.
