For those applying DO, remember that DO schools want to see at least one recommendation from a DO. Don’t simply cut and paste your recommendations and application to AMCAS (MD) schools. Let the DO schools know exactly why you want to go DO!

–Dr. Miller

Excellent advice; it’s crucial to have a letter from a DO to back up your interest in osteopathic school. The DO schools want to know that you’ve done your due diligence and know the difference between allopathic and osteopathic medicine.



On the bus a man discovered a pickpocket’s hand thrust into his pocket.

“sorry,” he said to the pickpocket, “you are too late. My wife did it before you.”
