Why go MD? I mean from what I have read I gather the following: - Your residency and fellowship training are more important than where you went to medical school. - MDs and DOs get of the same field get paid the same - Patients don't know the difference - As a physician you and your colleagues will be too busy to care about where you went to medical school. Okay, so that's all fine and dandy but what's the catch? I mean surly MDs have some advantage besides the fact that there slightly more prestigious. I mean, for the difference in MCAT average (30 for MD, 26 for DO) and GPA (3.7 MD, 3.4 DO) clearly MDs have some huge advantage considering everyone gets paid the same and treated the same.
