I am applying to medical school next year and I cannot decide if I should apply to DO or MD schools. My GPA is 3.9 and 3.94 science and I have clinical volunteer experience, was president of my local chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, and was chosen to represent the United States as part of a Native American dance group for UNICEF's fiftieth anniversary celebration. I am interested in osteopathic medicine but some people have told me that DO's can be less respected than MD's. If anybody has input on the pros and cons of being a DO vs. MD I would appreciate it. Thanks.
