I think you're barred from US MD/DO, and Carib. I hear McDonald's workers might be paid $15/hour

From what I hear handshake is more closely scrutinized than mcat so hopefully your gpas are strong enough to overcome your handshake deficits

for real though, I am sure it is fine, so long as the rest of the interview went fine and your numbers are decent enough.

Would consider a BS to MSN track now. Without a doubt you are blacklisted to every MD/DO school.

pathogens are spread from handshakes more so than talking and other forms of distribution (according to the internal med doc im shadowing). So consider not shaking his hand a favor, maybe even a service.

I laughed at all the responses but now I'm actually wondering... I thought it's the person "higher up" who should offer a handshake to the person "below" them? I.e. if an interviewer doesn't offer a handshake, I wouldn't initiate?
