Okay so I'm applying to Nova and they want a LOR from a DO, but the thing is I don't know any DO's personally. It seems weird to call up a DO that I have no assocition with and ask if I can meet with them to discuss writing a recommendation letter. Was anyone else in similar position? If so, what did you do? I know that people shadow the DO and then the DO will write a LOR? But I very soon I will really have my hands fulls between school, volunteering and part-time work, so I'm not sure that I can shadow a DO for any significant period of time. My thing is that I want to be a doctor and I don't particularly care if I am MD or DO, but I'm not like some people who are really, really want to go down the DO route exclusively for philosophical reasons. I'm not really sure what to do here...does anyone know of any DO's in the South Florida area who might be willing to help out a perfect stranger?
