Hi!! I just found this board!!! I am a junior education major with a stong desire to become a DO. A little about myself: -3.9 GPA -Special Olympics volunteer coach and unified partner -Member of Alpha Lambda Delta and Kappa Delta Pi honor societies -I have a stong tendency to go after whatever I want and not stop until I get it. Currently I am am shadowing my Orthopedic Surgeon who is a DO. He is also a clinical faculty member at OUCOM. It has been an absolutely amazing experience. I even was allowed to go into surgery with him!!! There are several reasons why I want to become a DO. First of all, I wholeheartly believe in it's principles. Since shadowing my DO, I have found that DO's take a more personable approach to medicine. I stongly believe that doctors need to treat the person first and the disease second. Anyway, here is my situation. I have 3 more semesters left to finish my BS degree. I plan to enroll as a Post-Baculaurate to obtain my prerequisite courses to apply to med school. Any advice??
