I was informed today by the D.O. that I thought I was going to shadow that his administrators wouldn't let me due to issues of patient confidentiality and liability. I can get a letter from a MD whom I currently work with. Do you think that will hurt my chances of getting in? btw, there are not many D.Os in my area and from what I understand most DO schools require a recommendation letter from a D.O. or at least prefer one. did any of you get in with a letter from a M.D.??
