If qhn is talking about DO's he is correct. But????????????? While I don't understand it I have trouble with that entire "balance" thing or always a "fundamental" cause? Last DO I went to recommended 1000mg Ibuprofens and physical therapy. I blew it off for a couple days then went there and tried said I can't do. Turns out when he got the results. Fracture tibia no ACL cartilage damage. No more Physical therapy. ACL transplant clean up the meniscus. Then PT. My coworkers do not like they are less inclined to prescribe narcotics but I know my coworkers just want narcotics.
Hang in there if you got that many interviews bound to land one.
Nice to meet you too.
Haha, you've been doing an excellent job since I've been MIA.
DO's certainly have a different outlook than traditional MD's. IMO, they deserve more pub than they've been getting in the public's eye and academic community. Around here anyways, DO's are a lot fewer than MD's.
Thanks man. Yea, I've been told statistically I should've had about 5-6 acceptances by now from my pre-med and med student friends. It's just been mind-boggling since my interviews were huge strengths (helped land a lot of jobs at medical research labs anyways). Got a few I haven't heard from so hopefully they're the 5.

That's true. But the former degree tends to thrill the significant other's parents (at least those who aren't really in the know) into submission a bit more in my experience.
I've got a couple of friends who went the DO route. I'd say they're learning the same and having a better time than the MD students. Speakin of Stanford, I gave them a pass this year from my football curse (they won for the 1st time in 4 years) but it's back on.
