Ok, I have an interview...1st for DO school ever. I did apply to MD schools last spring....had no luck. Because of disappointment and complete lack of respect for the whole MD process (only stats matter...don't care what anybody says). Anywho, a friend told me to go speak to this DO. I met the DO, spent some time with him -- LOVED EVERY MINUTE. He was down to earth, took time out of his day for me, loved what he did, and felt a connection with his patients i never seen before. His strong interest in primary care and its importance to our future showed me not to be disgusted w/ medicine but just that I was going down the wrong path. Now, i know i want to go the DO route -- I will be happier. thus, if the question is brought up -- "why did you apply so late to DO and apply so early to MD schools" -- is my answer ok....or not? what do you think? any experience with this situation? thanks.
