Letter of recommendation from a DO for MD

    I tried searching the forums but didnt find anything - I have a DO writing me a letter for both the MD and DO programs I am applying to (he is writing different ones for each). However I was wondering if it is not a good idea for a DO to write a letter for allopathic (MD) programs?

      I don't think it matters. I had LORs from a DO and two MDs included as part of my letter packet. I'm assuming the DO won't be writing "xbowers showed extreme, almost fanatical interest in OMM and we spent a lot of time laughing about how MDs ignore this critical component of medicine."
