For those of you who are moms and have/are applying/interviewing for med schools: - Did you downplay having a family to care for? - Would mentionining your children be viewed as detrimental (ie, set you apart as a less-than ideal or committed candidate?) Or would it make you seem as though you are capable of handling more than the "typical" student? - Has anyone had feedback from schools regarding how to present (or not) this part of you? - I have been told by my pre-med advisor that it would be looked at as a negative for MD programs, but is more acceptable for DO programs.
