The Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) considers all competitive students with an emphasis on those students from Alabama and the surrounding regions who are committed to serving the rural and medically underserved areas of the state and region. ACOM uses multiple criteria to select the most qualified candidates from an average applicant pool of about 4,000.
ACOM uses a rolling admissions process in which applications are reviewed and student interview decisions are made at regular intervals during the admission cycle. Interviews are conducted and selection decisions are made until the class is filled. Applicants are notified of the admission status within a few weeks after their interview. Candidates should apply early in the admissions cycle to be competitive in the process.
