    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    OK, should I be worried that my banner ads have gone from LECOM...to SGU...To some Latin American Med School.... and are now just car ads??

    Have I been silently rejected by the Banner Ads? :scared:

    I think it really means that you should have just taken all the application money you are spending, and just bought a car instead.

    I'm pretty sure it's based on your search history. I'm getting a lot of ads for suits because I've been doing searches on suits.

    Consider donating! Silver, Gold, and Lifetime Donors do not see Google Ads on the forums.

    I still don't see them, I put pervious post to "nvmd" because it's better than the obnoxiously large screenshot I posted lol. I see where they should go because there's a hyperlink saying "About the Ads"

    While I recommend donating (which I plan to do soon...), if you are using safari there is an extension that blocks all banner ads on pretty much every site that you go to. Just a fun tid bit I thought I would share.

    I think the real question is, what kind of car were the ads for?

    Facebook has lately been showing me AUC's ads on my newsfeed. Plus, yesterday, I got an email from Trinity something school telling me that I don't need to wait a year to start med school . First, I just laughed this stuff off but then I thought what if the universe is trying to tell me something?!...haha..this cycle has officially made me a paranoid mess!:rolleyes:
