    HI I have applied to DO and MD schools. I have had the chance to tour and meet faculty at a few of the schools, and feel like the school I would fit in best at is a DO school. It is also close to home. If i get in i feel like it would be the best place to go for the short term but am not sure abou the long run.

    Is it hard to get into a competitive speciality coming from a DO school. I mean I know its possible but are you at a significant disadvantage. Which speciality programs would be harder to get into. I ask because I am not sure what I want to go into.

    The DO i shadowed told me usually its not really a big problem and that it may be different now becasue when he was in med school almost everyone in his class went into primary care.

    This is not suppose to be another flame, I just want some information about a very big life decision. Thanks

    I was kinda wondering the samething. Are there any specialities where a DO degree would be at ur advantage? Are there any where a DO degree might be a disadvantage or maybe put u at a disadvantage when applying to these residencies?:confused:
