You know, you guys: Before i really started looking at medical and applying and such, I didn't really understand what a DO was. I have sense done some researchh, and LIKE what I have learned. After listening to both the allo- and osteo- boards, I get the general sense that the DO people are a little less fanatical, but endlessly devoted, even more so, to GENUINELY helping people, not just getting a "Dr." in front of their name. The allo- schools (from what I hear) are more constrained, and don't take into account the whole person, yes? DO's just sound more 'people' oriented...is that why some of you chose this?
