Any DO's at your interviews?
This forum has been my saving grace for getting information, so I thought I would tap into some of the path brains and get more. During your interviews, did you encounter any DO students and if so, what programs were interviewing them? Also, do you have any knowledge of them matching? I have a very strong interest in path and have been extensively researching my options as a DO, however, I do not know what programs are DO friendly or not. I do not want to post this as DO's in Path, because I know that there are a number, but I want to know what programs seriously consider DO's for their spots and carry out their interests by interviewing them and subsequantly ranking them. Just as an FYI, I have taken USMLE, have LOR's from Pathologists as well as from directors of departments, etc.
I have pretty high expectations and will be doing electives at places I am seriously considering, i.e., MGH, Mt. Sinai, GW, etc. and was wondering if anyone had any insight. Posting this on DO forums always gets the typical, "programs look at the person not the degree," but in all honesty I am not really sure top programs in any specialty actually carry out this philosophy.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
