Guys I'm also confused about difference between MD and DO during my interview i'm like in my head what in the world is DO. I know what it stands for but WTF is the difference between the two? I got in but which is better, is there somewhere that can explain this? Thanks

Well when I was applying I knew they were closely related and knew both are considered doctors but I dont' know the exact difference. I just want to make money I could care less about the other crap. Heard it makes money so I said why not. Now I'm in I need to learn the difference. Could you detail the differences.

How did you manage to apply, interview, and get accepted to an osteopathic school and yet have no clue what it is in relation to allopathic?

What do you mean its same application form almost same requirements. Interviewed they didn't ask me what the difference is so I don't know what the difference is and why are you guys asking me questions when I asked you guys a question first. I think I just had outstanding letters of Rec.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a TROLL. You need a recommendation from a D.O. to get into a D.O. school, how could any accepted applicant possibly not know about it?

And you can't ask your good buddy there to explain what exactly a D.O. is? Maybe you had trouble understanding because he doesn't speak Trollenese.
