Personal Narrative: My Osteopathic Application

369 Words2 Pages
Last year, my Osteopathic application was made in haste and was submitted as a back up plan to failing Allopathic applications. As a part of completing the primary application and also preparing for Osteopathic interviews, I discovered that the Osteopathic philosophy appeared to be a better fit for me. Shadowing an Osteopathic physician as well as an Allopathic physician has solidified this observation.

Last year’s failed attempt to gain entry to medical school has been soul crushing and has forced me to consider other career paths. During this period, I have examined many options. I feel that if I were to pursue these, I would be successful. However, I know that deep down I would never be as fulfilled, as I would be healing others.
