Did any one get accepted to DO schools without a letter of rec from a DO?
some schools are really strict about it others aren't. I got into tucom, dmu, and i think comp without my DO letter yet. Some schools do require it. I think it would be better to have a letter from an MD who knows you than from a DO who you ate lunch with
OSU-COM says that they won't even grant an interview until you have a DO letter submitted. They will take an MD letter in addition to the DO letter--that can be the knows-you-well letter.

I got into UNECOM without a letter from a DO.
Hello! I received an acceptance from MSUCOM without a letter of recommendation from a D.O. They were more interested in receiving letters from individuals who knew me very well. I got to know a lot of D.O.'s while an undergrad at MSU, however, I did not feel that they were able to assess my abilities as well as other professionals I had interacted with. Best of luck to you!
