    2 schools im applying to require a character letter. i am able to get a character letter from a doctor who is also a family friend, and whom i have never shadowed. would it be possible to use this letter to satisfy the DO letter requirement? i have not shadowed them but do know them personally. and before anyone says to just go shadow them now, they recently moved so i cant really shadow them now.

    ive found a few threads where people also asked about situations similar to mine and most responses stated it would be ok as long as the writer attests that they believe you would be a good doctor, regardless of whether or not you shadowed that specific doctor.
