Being a first year DO may I please ask the people that are planning DO as a back up to rethink it. If you really want an MD do it, wait the few years that you need to get the grades and scores. If you dont want to do OMM then dont apply, DO schools are not a back. Up. I get really mad at some of my current peers that hate OMM feel embarrassed to tell people they go to a DO school. You will be much happer at a MD school. Ask yourself Do I want to be with patients or do I want to call myself Dr. because I think I am smart? Please do yourself a favor and the rest of us by doing what fits you.
