Hello all! I am a 23 year old student torn between becoming a PA and a DO. I truly love the philosophy of DO, but have heard about people that have no life outside of medicine once they graduate. I completely understand the meaning of full dedication, but not at the cost of having a family or life outside of work. I am the daughter of a PA and feel that it is a wonderful career, but at the same time am ready to re-evaluate and dive into the med school application process. My GPA is not perfect, butI do have a lot of experience in health care and am determined. Maybe too determined. Any advice from DO's or students would be terrific. Thank you for your time!
