Any additional demographic information? URM/SED/rural? I would also mention you should be a desirable candidate for any DO school, so have you done any networking there considering you did shadow with two DOs?
Not URM, not SED, but yes rural. & one of the DO docs wrote me a letter of rec! I'm applying both MD and DO both but the majority of schools are MD
