    Hi everyone :)
    Just wanted to know whether anyone knew if Midwestern University CCOM is stringent on getting a DO letter of recommendation.
    At present I am working a full-time job, a part-time job and taking two evening classes- so it is pretty difficult for me to shadow a DO at this point. Moreover, I feel that my MD rec letter will be more worthwhile since it comes from someone I've worked with extensively.
    I would greatly appreciate any tips in this arena if anyone has advice to dish out.

    Just got my CCOM letter on Friday for a mid-October interview date. The wait is finally over!!! And yes, a D.O. letter is required. Good luck. ;)

    Hi PalCareGirl, Glad you had a safe trip home and it was equally great to meet you also. You should be getting your CCOM letter too, I think you told me you applied. Have fun at Nova and best of luck. :D
