    Bad idea?

    A lot of schools ask me how I learned of osteopathy. I've sent multiple secondaries saying something along this line, "Wanting to learn more I then went and visited a nearby DO school called XXXXXXX"

    Or should I just do something like, "nearby health science college with a doctor of osteopathy program"

    ?







    Oops, thread title has typo. I'm tired.

    It will be OK to name the school. We take for granted that people are applying to other schools. That's why we accept about 2x the number of seats we have...we know all 200 aren't going to come to our school.

    Osteopathy being a small world, you might even get interview questions like "I see that you visited XCOM. Did you meet Dr X?"
