I applied very late to DO schools last year, didn't get in. I am applying this year again, and for one of my major activities, I estimated around 320 hours last year, when I recently found out I have only done 270 hours so far (fewer than I put last year), so in the re-application, how many hours do I put? I definitely do not want to be dishonest, and it is one of my major activities so it is important. I have done even fewer hours than I put last year, so I am so confused and nervous about putting in my hours this year. Thank you for your answer!
Since hours are not validated or audited, I don't think this is a big deal. The quality of your insight about medicine will reveal all that an interviewer needs to know.
