I am applying to med school next year and I am strongly considering going to a DO school. My grades are 3.9 across the board and I have volunteer experience at a hospital, been president of my local chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, been chosen as a part of a Native American dance group to represent the United States in Germany for UNICEF's fiftieth anniversary, and, yes, I am Native American. So, my reasons for choosing DO are not because I think that I'm not competitive at an MD school, but I am interested in their philosophy. I have not yet made up my mind so if anybody has any reasons not to DO, let me know. Thanks.
