I intend to start a similar thread for my law school application process, so I'll also be taking queues from your thread in terms of format.

You may have already shared your law school application process; however, I wanted to add the option of studying abroad for law school. I have sent my DD to law school, in England. She went there straight from High School (British system). She is foregoing the entire undergrad process, here in the US. She will attain a LLB and will be eligible to sit the bar exam in NY or California.

I thought I would throw that out there, as an option. Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks for the advice. I've considered this option (and other non-standard routes), but I think for me going the more traditional JD route is the way to go. Among other reasons, I don't want to be limited to CA/NY

I wish her luck, however. Perhaps someday I'll end up working with (or across from) her!

Nice reading about your journey! I am a physician recruiter and have been for 9 years.

Being a DO is great! For most states, you get your licensed after PGY-1 (1st year of residency) and this will allow you to moonlight sooner than your MD counterparts. Can save you a lot of money in the long-term.

I would strongly urge you against the Carribean schools. Not because they are not comparable, but because it can be a lot harder to get into residency than an AMG (American) school. I know plenty of physicians that were not able to get a residency spot and have not practiced.

Remember, when you go an IMG (International) graduate, you compete against graduates from all around the world and it becomes much harder.

DO is the way to go. 

Here are some schools to consider:

DO:
Touro University California 
Touro University Nevada
California Health Sciences University
Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine
Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine

MD:
Kaiser Medical School in Pasadena (TUITION FREE)
California Northstate University
