    Would volunteering at a chiropractic office count as EC? or would schools not look at that as much? Thanks

    I did some volunteer work at a vets office. But when I wrote about it, I explained it so that it tied into osteopathic medicine and my psychology major (animal beh stuff).

    I think all clinical experience is beneficial, and susan hanson the director of admissions at COMP said that even if you volunteered at a hospital and only moved patients around you should have gotten some sort of experience from it. Thus, its cool to do chiro stuff I guess (although I think that type of practice is a bit extreme with their whole approach to medications n' stuff)...

    Thats my opinion, but if you have a choice btwn shadowing someone else (MD or DO), then I'd go with the latter.
    :luck:
