I agree with Spunk...it depends on your application and what is lacking. Personally, I think anyone can get ample experience if they do the reccomendations that AACOM tells prospective applicants to do in order to apply for D.O. schools (be diverse, shadow a D.O. physician). As for academics, be ready for a tough ride. Some, rather most, graduate programs are very tough and are very similar to first year medical school classes. Hope this helps.
