I just wanted to know if anyone could give me some advice on becoming a D.O. I graduated in '99 with a degree in Chemistry and a 2.9 GPA. Is there anything that I can do to improve my chances on being accepted at a Osteopathic Medical School. I really prefer the hands-on, preventative medicine, and caring for the "whole person" philosophy that the Osteopathic degree offers. However, I feel that because my GPA is not that high that I may have already ruined my chances. Is there anything that I can do to improve my chances and distinguish myself from the other candidates? (I could probably use a little consolation too, lol) but any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read my posting.
