    You'll probably want to get more clinical experience (more clinical volunteering, or find some type of position that will allow you to interact with patients).

    Also, some DO schools require a letter from a DO, so you may need to shadow a DO to obtain that letter.

    Some research experience never hurts, although don't do research just for the sake of doing research. If you're not interested in doing research, don't waste your time with it.

    Do well on the MCAT!
