Can really use some input! I am a senior premed student extremely interested in pursuing forensic pathology. I have high GPA, research + paper, shadowing, and awesome extracurriculars. The only thing is my MCAT score is sub-average. I did not have enough time to study for it, and my score reflects this. I applied MD and DO anyways, and got accepted into a DO school. I feel lucky to have gotten into med school in the first place, but I’m worried DO isn’t the right choice for me. Because I want to pursue pathology, I’m worried about competing with MD’s for residency and essentially doing OMM training and having to be re-certified every few years for something I’ll never use. It seems MD is better for specializing, and DO is mainly primary care, internal med, and surgery. Is it worth doing a masters for 2 years, re-studying for the MCAT, and applying MD, or just taking the DO acceptance and facing the hurdles? I am extremely conflicted here - any input would mean so much. Thank you for taking the time to read this!!
