You'll need to check in with the schools as to their policies, but at my school, we've had people leave after matriculating for our state MD school.Hi,
I am grateful for my D.O. acceptance, however, I would prefer to go to one of the M.D. programs. I feel that they were a better fit and I want to go into Ortho. I interviewed in March at 2 M.D. programs. I have not heard back from one of them and I was put on a waitlist for the other. The D.O. school I am accepted at starts early June and the M.D. programs I am waiting to hear back from have a lot of waitlist movement in June/July. My question is if I am accepted to one of the M.D. programs after starting at the D.O. school would I be able to leave and matriculate M.D.? I know this must be difficult for the D.O. school but the reality is there is a good chance I won't hear back from the M.D. programs until June/July and this school choice can significantly affect my chances of matching into a competitive specialty. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
