What took so long to get them out? I know AAOCOM has been backed up for a while now....
My friend just had hers sent out 2 weeks ago and got an interview offer the next day from NYCOM. She had the interview 3 days ago. So, there is hope.
Personally, I don't see anything wrong in applying to DO schools as backups. However, I do believe that if they get rejected to MD schools and go DO, they should be proud to be a DO and not be bitter about it. If they are bitter then they should not attend.Originally posted by WstSdDesi
a DO degree is for people who have the passion for osteopathy and truly understand their philosophy that sets them apart from their fellow MD....and not are not using it as a "backup"
