I have found that when I suggest that students apply to both M.D. and D.O. schools, they often don’t know the difference or have a poor understanding of one or the other. In this post, I will explore the differences between the two types of U.S. doctors and what that means for you as a pre-med and med school applicant.
Let me start by saying that if you are about to start studying or have started studying for the MCAT, you are facing one of the most challenging times in all of undergrad. However, it is a rite of passage for all premeds, and everyone in medical school has done this successfully before you. So you can and will get through it!
To help you get through this, I have complied a brief list of MCAT Study Tips & Tricks that I picked up along the way and learned from others. This list is not exhaustive, though. If you have any tips or tricks of your own that I did not address, please leave them in the comment section below.
