i'm in medical school at UCSD and my cousin is currently applying to medical schools. however, she doesn't think her chances are that great and wants to try osteopathic schools, so i had a few questions to ask. 1. do medical students in allopathic schools consider the osteopathic school counterparts of the same caliber as their allopathic peers? 2. i also recently heard an osteopathic student state that he was going to medical school but i found out that it's actually an osteopath school, is there not a big difference between med school and this other type of osteopath med school? i would appreciate an honest opinion b/c i don't want my cousin to go into osteopath and realize that she can't specialize or have some odd restriction such as this. i am especially curious as to how med students view osteopath students b/c do they not all work in the same hospital?
