Hey everyone. So I need help making a tough decision. I recently got accepted into a masters program with an unofficial linkage with an MD program in my home state. With this 2-year program, I would be taking med school classes as well as a Kaplan course to improve my MCAT score. As long as I do well in the program, I would get an interview and hopefully start med school. But I’m torn because I just got an interview invite for a DO school that ghosted me for months lol so idk what to do. If everything goes well and I end up getting into the DO school, should I do that instead of the MD linkage? I’m already 26 and I don’t really want to keep pushing this back.

OP, if you get into the other medical school (not the linkage,) take it and run.

If you get the DO offer, accept it and don't look back. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Choice #1: almost certainly be a DO 4 years and 2 months from now.
Choice #2: maybe be a MD 6 years and 2 months from now.

What's tough about this choice? There is a real reason why people are saying "take the DO and run with it".
