I am REALLY scared about my letter form a DO. The absolute only time that I have to shadow will be this coming spring break, and in this short time I have to try to get the Doc to write me a "good letter." Why did I wait until now? There has been just no time. I work full time and go to school...as do many. but the way my schedule has panned out over the last three semesters is that I have only the weekends and some evenings free. Yet there are NO Do offices open around here after 5pm or on the weekends. Any one else have a similar problem? how much is the letter going to factor into the selection process???
