Having slightly lower admission statistics than USMD schools and lack of the majority control in the GME game.

In all seriousness, the DO degree is pretty great already. I got into a good ACGME IM residency and a great rheum fellowship with mine...its gotten me exactly where I wanted to go. No regrets here.

You guys will see someday that most of the hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing that happens in this forum ends up being essentially meaningless in the long run. Once you're out of residency/practicing/in fellowship etc, a lot of these issues just don't matter all that much.

Disagree with this.
"Having slightly lower admission statistics than USMD schools"


Quality control here is the issue.

" and lack of the majority control in the GME game."

Ignorant pre-meds, elderly PDs, and a couple of dumas sedan residents are some other problems we face.
