    Eh...I asked friends of mine or classmates I know well enough that me asking wouldnt be weird. Ive been on SDN long enough that this issue comes up constantly...and I really was genuinely curious. I am sure some schools with lower stats utilize this policy more heavily than others. PCOM, has students of a high enough caliber that I doubt this really takes place too often at my school.

    But yeah we do agree. I am in a hard place in these threads because I am not delusional. I know the MD pathway is the pathway of choice. I am not going to sit here and argue some of the BS points that the "DO diehards" like to bring up...because they are flat out wrong, and a product of (like you said) fragile egos. I know MD students match better and that as a whole MD students have better undergrad stats. There is no point in arguing about factual information. But at the same time, when someone (a premed with no med school experience none the less) insults my future career, and a degree I have worked my ass off toward attaining, its hard not to get sucked into defending myself, my school, and my fellow DO classmates no matter what school they are at.

    I applied both MD and DO (admittedly DO was backup). however the OMM demo at DMU was what turned me off hard-core. The girl used the words "diagnose" and "treat" as buzzwords with no real meaning.

    This is what happened verbatim
    "I am going to diagnose the hip"
    - pushes on the hip a few times of a supine student. mumbling from time to time about how "messed up" the student was
    "ok. I have DIAGNOSED the hip!" (picture a superhero pose for this one
    "now, I am going to TREAT the hip!"
    again, pushing on the hip... but now also tugging on legs ect....
    "alright, I have just treated the hip!"

    so we have upper level students who are "diagnosing" issues with no chief complaint, and "treating" these issues with a measure of success identical to "you left just as you came in"..... my head almost popped. I would have felt better if she had even indicated that the other student WOULD have had xxxx issues, but this was a perfectly healthy girl being told she had something out of whack, a few good whacks, and suddenly she is back IN whack :confused:


    the whole thing struck me as

    "what if" is exactly right. I have already typed out and deleted a series of long and overly sarcastic responses to some of those types of statements..... trying to play nice :smuggrin:

    You just said there the difference between a 27 and a 31 didn't mean anything. That is ignoring the numbers.

    haha just like EVERY MD vs DO thread. Replying to them is addicting tho isnt it?

    Lets just summarize: MD students have better undergrad GPAs and MCATs.

    Does this mean they will become better doctors due to these aforementioned stats? In most cases no. I think the only real way to compare med students between MD and DO would be to compare class means in the preclinical coursework...and as far as I know those numbers arent readily available. Cant really use USMLE, since it is NOT our primary board exam, we have 2 exams to worry about, and many DO students take the USMLE for ****s and giggles.

    MD students fare better in their own match vs DO students.

    Many DO schools have ****ty rotations, many do not (like my sites for the upcoming year).

    MD schools should be your first choice, followed by DO schools for the above mentioned reasons.

    Many DO schools are more expensive than MD schools....many are not (like mine).

    Both pathways have the capacity to produce excellent doctors and largely terminate at the same end point.

    Im acknowledging the fact that there is a difference. I dont really know what that difference means outside of getting your foot in the door to a med school. My neighbor drives a R32. I drive an MKV GTI. There are differences there. Both cars take us to our destinations which is the purpose of a vehicle.....and thus I dont know what the true difference between our vehicles are.

    In this case it is what you make of the vehicle I guess. I have no doubt that you will do fine and beat out several MD students in the future. Can you say that for all of you classmates though?

    On a side note
    my neighbor is a dentist and upon hearing I got into med school preceded to tell my parent how getting into dental school is harder then med school these days.

    haha that meme was great....what you summarized above is something that takes place constantlyyyy in the OMM lab. It was obviously a demo on an individual with no real "pathology" (whatever that pathology may be). All of our OMM "training" takes place on lab partners with no real pathology..and thus we have no actual way to quantify whether our "treatments" did anything. At the end of the day OMM is just glorified PT that the AOA has hyped into something more than it is.

    If a muscle is in spasm you can reduce that spasm using post isometric relaxation or reciprocal inhibition....both accepted techniques with valid science behind them=physical therapy. If a muscle is tight and thus causing pain and you shorten the length between origin and insertion you reduce the pain. Thats about all the OMM I can say I believe in....anything beyond that is questionable at best. (Keep in mind I will never use any of the techniques I believe in after I walk out the door....okay well maybe to seduce my wife:D)

    another great one that i have had the pleasure to engage in with a few people :cool:
    its a matter of numbers again. the average dental student may have had a larger pool than the average med student (I dont know that that is true......) however the average medical student would have an easier time getting into dental school than he or she had getting into med school. in an unrelated discussion with someone who said something similar to me I linked out to a series of anecdotal stories of people who were not competative enough to get into med school who decided to go the dentist route instead. the posted numbers MCAT vs DAT were pretty interesting lol (DO guys, this was med student vs dental, not MD vs dental ;))

    I use mine to repeatedly burn through front tires due to the excessive amount of (modified) horsepower going to two wheels, while he never burns out due to the superior design of AWD. (beating this poor analogy to death).

    With regard to beating MD students....I am sure my GPA in med school is better than hundreds if not thousands of MD students across the country. There ARE plenty of classmates that scare me......but this same thing is present at MD schools. Once you step into med school in the fall get back to me on that....bc I guarantee there will be students in your class who will SCARE THE **** out of you. Students that can cram information into their brains, but have zero common sense, which is just as dangerous as not even having that information at all.

    Everyone always thinks their "program" is the hardest/most cutthroat/most difficult to get into. Ive gotten into this conversation with people in all walks of life: engineering, law school, business. Its fun listening to people justify their pathways in life...SDN or IRL. Think about how many times youve heard/read things like "I would have gone to med school but I dont like blood/guts/poop/pee/etc." Or " I would have gone to med school but I would rather have been a nurse...nurses are the REAL providers of care..blah blah blah." However, we know the real reason you didnt go to med school: you werent intelligent enough/driven enough/etc to go.

    There are a number of things that keep some DO's from going MD that are not related to intellectual ability, though we cannot rule this out as a factor.

    I swam D3 in college and was pretty good but would never have made a D1 team, ever. I am not ashamed to admit this. Why is intelligence any different?

    I will also say this. I am lazy. Times when I should have been studying for my MCAT I was out drinking. I can work on this one though.

    People are different. We each have things we can and can't do and things that we need to work on.

    I wouldn't say this is true in all cases. If you don't want people to hate on DO you shouldn't hate on other professions.

    :thumbup: I like that analogy. I mentioned my case above somewhere in this thread. I had a 2.45 undergrad GPA. Despite the fact that I got my masters with a 3.75 in 70 credits my cumulative GPA was something like a 2.9. AFAIK my masters credits wouldnt have even budged that undergrad GPA...making my AMCAS GPA 2.45. Would never have had my application make it past the secretary despite my 10 years of full time clinical experience and great masters GPA. Its a fact. No excuses made. I never would have gotten into an MD with that undergrad cloud over my head. I wasnt going to do a SMP or retake all of undergrad. My intelligence wasnt the issue. Med school acceptance is a game. You need to strategize the best you can and play the game to the best of your ability. Thats all there is to it. PCOM FTW in my case. No shame....I get to be a doctor.

    Sure, its probably not in ALL cases...just in the majority. Not hating on professions...just on certain people for not coming clean for their true reasons. Just like I hate on DO students who make BS claims for the reason they went to a DO school.

    at that same unfortunate DMU interview I went to, the other applicants sat down in a pow-wow while waiting for the actual interview and just hated on MDs and MD programs for about a half hour. The fact that they had an average 25 mcat between them was strangely absent from the list of reasons.... sorry, there was no non-snarky way to put that

    I agree. I think that what other's were trying to say albeit with less tact is that this is not true for every DO student though and that if you take the average MD student and compare him to the average DO student intellectual capacity comes into play.

    Frazier just cant recognize there is a difference between calling people who got into (and excelled more than likely) in med school A. poor workers or B. dumb....and laughing at people who try to make BS excuses for the reasons they would never have gotten accepted to med school whether it be DO or MD.

    Thus, I am done responding to his/her posts. You can feel free to put me on ignore too Frazier.

    I fail to see how that is hypocritical AT ALL. But then again, I am a DO student, and we are all lazy morons...so I wouldnt be expected to have the intellectual capacity to understand where you are coming from right? And again, if you have nothing to add, step out. You have added nothing to this thread.

    MD = high School jocks
    DO = high school theater geeks

    Jk


    I can really tell a lot of you have a lot of life to learn. You will not get "respect" just because you have a MD or DO. You earn respect. That being said given the option I think MD is best route because the stigma of getting residency/rotations, not because you will be a better doctor. At the end of the day you will hold the same responsibility of patient care. I don't have ambitions to be cardio, surgery, rad or derm. My sites are set on EM so really I would go to a DO if that was the option presented to me. I hold my head high, the title doesn't define you. For every crappy DO we can find a crappy MD.

    What they say may be their true reasons, and they could be doing their profession because they want to, not because they weren't smart enough/driven. I say this is fairly analogous to MD students thinking that DOs aren't smart enough/driven. If you want respect please show respect. I know plenty of smart people going into nursing who could have easily made into MD, let alone DO (means they were more and intelligent and driven then you were, yet we can't judge you based on past performance?). When they site their reasons for not going MD I believe them. I don't assume that they must've wanted to go MD and write them off as dumb...

    Honestly that post makes me think if you were MD you would be hating on DOs....

    Only brilliant people go to school as MD's haha

    From what I found most these pre-meds with high gpa are just great at memorizing, yet suck at concepts. Let's see these pre-meds get through mechanical or electrical engineering, maybe even a physics degree - and maintain gpa>3.8. Most these look at my high gpa in biology kids are just clueless. I'm grossly generalizing, but my point is everything is relative.

    This is coming from a ochem TA. Most the brilliant people I come across are a few of the phd students, that are literally doing research for peanuts yet have some serious critical thinking skills at working through problems where there is no set book or instructions for. There is also plenty retarded phd students. I'm getting at is there retards everywhere.

    Just food for thought.

    I respectfully disagree. I cant even begin to see how they can really be compared. In one argument an individual is talking down about people who have made it into med school...and likely are doing fine and will make fine doctors...based on premedical stats that have little/nothing to do with real life med school performance.

    In another argument one is poking fun at people who make outlandish claims about their reasons for not even trying to embark on the journey. The similarities between the two are few. The fact is, there ARE plenty of people who simply cannot be doctors because they arent intelligent or driven enough. This goes for ANY career path. Its a fact....and its totally fine. Its just funny to listen to the reasons these people come up with to explain this.

    And sure, some people may have gone the nursing route for personal reasons. Remember I am older and had a career before med school...and have met hundreds of nurses. Ive only met a few I think would actually make it through a bachelors degree and into med school. Most are perfectly content in their jobs/qualifications, but ive also met plenty who also like to make interesting claims about why they couldnt make it into med school.

    Either way, no disrespect was meant in my generic example, and it was made as a passing comment. Wasnt even something I really put any thought into...although perhaps I should have considering the fact that you and frazier think that me saying it makes me contradictory.

    And NO I wouldnt be talking down about DOs. I grew up in a family of MDs in a DO heavy area and my father and all my other relatives that are MDs never had a bad word to say about the DOs they worked with.

    Either way, I have contributed all I will contribute to this thread since (as all MD vs DO threads do) we are now just running in circles and resorting to personal attacks (myself included) instead of discussing anything meaningful.

    I have been following your debate with Frazier and at this post I think you are being irrational. You think one's performance on undergrad don't correlate with one's performance in medical school at all??? AT ALL??? Are you serious? Obviously not 100% but at least 70% right? Are you telling me the guy who can't even understand simple biology processes can make a competent doctor?? I have a hard time believing that.

    Sure understanding the SN2 reaction better than the other guy does not make you a better doctor but that specific knowledge about SN2 is not the point. The point is the thinking and skills it takes to understand the reaction. That thinking and skills will be used to understand harder concepts in medical school. So MCAT wasn't really testing your knowledge of SN2 but rather your cognitive function even though it is not the perfect test but it's the best we have.

    It's great that medical school is working out for you but you can't say the same for all the people who struggled through undergrad and score a 24 on the MCAT for example. What is the percentage of those people you can say will be as good as you are with confidence?

    I think its fair to assume there is a smarter DO and MD student than everyone posting on this thread.

    Chill out there will always be someone more dumb than you and someone smarter than you.

    Atleast to me it seemed like you were judging people who did not have the intelligence or drive to get into medical school. The reason these people wouldn't be able to get into medical school was there stats. So here you are equating not having the stats to not being intelligent/driven which is the exact same thing Frazier did. Could be I be misinterpreting what you said? Maybe. But if I was in thread where I was requesting that no judgement be passed on my profession, I personally would have avoided judging individuals in other professions.

    No I am not judging anyone for it. Personally I think I (we) are all crazy for doing and I dont blame anyone for not having the drive. There are plenty of fields I am not smart enough for (read: anything involving complicated math). Thats fine. I wasnt judging anyone...just merely poking fun at the excuses people make for not going to med school. Like I said before, I made this comment in passing, wasnt even fully considering how what I was saying, and meant no disrespect by it. Lets just move past the issue okay? I apologize if I offended anyone with what I said and it wasnt my intent to disrespect anyone or their careers.

    Okie dokie, I'll drop the issue. I think this thread should just get a lock. Nothing constructive, just arguing...

    Agreed. I live for the day that pre allos can actually have a respectful constructive thread about MD vs DO without it degenerating into an argument. People on both sides of the issue are responsible. Pre MD students want to feel superior, and Pre DO students dont want to feel inferior....despite the fact that 90% of medical grads will end up at the same point in life.

    I had cited that above somewhere bcs its the only reaction I remembered from orgo (took it in 03) at that point. I since have remembered something called a diels alder reaction...and that it may or may not have involved some sort of dienes? Feel free to use that in SN2s place.

    You were the one who first took it to the extreme by saying that. I didn't need to push anything.

    Edit: My extreme example was just to illustrate your point that if the two don't correlate AT ALL then somebody who can't understand simple biology must have a decent shot at being ok in medical school right?

    Edit 2: "People grow up, people mature, and as someone who is still in college I wouldnt expect you to understand this."

    LOL You are the one advocating not judging one's ability on test scores and yet you judged my maturity on the fact that I am a premed in college which I am not, 25 and out of school. Get off your high horse bro.

    Obviously you are a subpar student if you can't remember what a SN2 reaction is

    ;);) (Read post with a heaping dose of sarcasm:cool:)

    Are we really going to nitpick my post? I am posting while studying and not proofreading my posts. That should have said they dont correlate "in many cases."
