Everything I've posted here applies, but a few additions are below. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/goro’s-guide-to-interviews.1097033/#post-15658660 Everything on the other post holds true, but you also need to show that you know something about Osteopathy. Please don’t simply parrot what you read on Wiki, there’s more to it than that. Those people who have shadowed DOs and compared and contrasted them to MDs will know what I mean. You will need to articulate the reasons of “Why Osteopathy”, and “why our school”, because the curriculum will be pretty much the same wherever you go (but the delivery will be different). Do NOT bash MDs. Some of your interviewers will be MDs, or married to them. If you’ve had poor experiences with allopathic medicine, that’s OK to discuss. If you’ve seen OMM or OMT in action, that’s a plus. If you’ve shadowed a DO, that’s a plus. If you have a DO in the family, that’s a plus. Be serious about this as your career choice. Don’t look back. If you really want to go to an MD school, well, go for an MD school.
