Hello, I have a dilemma. I am in the process of applying and I lack only my physician recommendation to have my file complete. Here's the problem: I have an M.D. who I have known for quite some time and I know would right me an excellent rec. But I know that most schools either require or PREFER to have a D.O. rec. I could shadow a D.O. at this point and get a rec., but there is no way he can get to know me as well as the M.D. does, not to mention the delay it would cause in completing my file. Is it better to get the D.O. rec just to have a D.O. rec. or to use a rec. from an M.D. who knows me better?
