    No, you're absolutely correct. I'm a non-trad who will be applying for the 2012 cycle as well, and I'd be happy to go to school with some of the current college sophomores that I know through friends and siblings, even if all of you would make me feel really old. I would be turning 28 right before classes started if I get in.

    Can a person who graduates in May of 2012 not start med school in the summer/fall of 2012? I know several people who went straight through and skipped the gap year. You would simply apply at the end of your junior year.


    Or am I missing something else? Either way, class of 2016 > all others. :)

    LOL. I am a sophomore. I graduate in 2012, and enter school that fall (traditionally). But I might not go that route anymore. Bye suckas! :D

    well....that cuts two people out of the mix based on their sub par rationalization skills. less competition for me!! :laugh:

    just kidding. but in all seriousness, we are going to need a new 2016 thread....this one started with too much bullshiz/whinning. :thumbdown:

    But good luck to you OP! :)

    the problem isn't on gap year. its a wrong graduation year all together.
    if some one is a freshman now then they are STARTING their last year in 2012 but finishing it in 2013 and starting med school in 2013.
    you don't start counting 4 years from when you start freshman year. its from when you end it. so its not 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. but its 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013...so this years freshmen are graduating in 2013 and in the same manner finishing med school in 2017 not 16.

    but none of us will have to worry about that if the world ends in 2012...cuz you know...we'll all be dead :scared:

    Oh My Gosh. LOL. This is why I put a DATE in the title. Haha. And to think you'll pass the verbal section of the MCAT :D Juust kidding. But in all seriousness, a gap year is VERY helpful to anyone's application.

    Thanks Hoody! BTW, your MDApps is really sexxay. I can just imagine a hot nurse in your picture. Haha you should post in the pictures thread. Maybe I'll reciprocate. LOL. Also, consider taking one year off so you can be in the same class as me :))

    Yes. Quite a few, but it remains to be seen how they will turn out. Mostly advocacy/teaching stuff; I'm looking to add that "wow" factor to my application. I figure taking a year off will help me do just that. What about you? What made you decide to switch from nursing? BTW, nurses are unanimously hot :laugh:

    Words of wisdom: taking a class that gets out at 9:30pm can never lead to any good.

    If you'll be applying in the 2011 cycle, then you'll be considered a c/o 2016.. I think there is plenty of time for you to sort things out.. I mean, u still have a year and 2 months in which u can take the MCAT, and im sure you can finish the classes u'll need for ur major in 2.5 years

    Wow! You follow Hockey? Nice. Sad thing is I have never been to a single game here at my campus, even though we are big about sports. Too involved I guess.

    This is why you guys weren't supposed to start 2014 when 2013 was still in progress. You reap what you sow.

    And really? 2016? I'll practically be an attending by then.

    I don't get why this is such a big deal. 2016 is basically the application cycle after this coming one in June.

    Class of 2014 Thread = started in Jan of 2009 (same year of application cycle, 2009-2010)

    Class of 2015 Thread = started in Dec of 2009 (close enough to same year of application cycle, 2010-2011)

    Thus, Class of 2016 should be end of 2010 or early 2011.

    Conclusion: Still too early, but whatever. :cool:

    We let these threads stick around as social outlets to stop people making new threads for purely social issues. Its 4 class threads or ~4 threads/day that have to be moved to AS.

    Plus I think you get better advice from people you "talk" to semi-regularly.

    Then again if someone starts Class of 3015 or anything like that-- it's not really funny, or witty, has been done to death and is really just boring.

    2016 in the house! :laugh:

    Well, in the first summer semester I've got health science microbiology and abnormal psychology. In the second semester I have botany. All of it mixed in with some research, shadowing, and random volunteering in the hospice. BUT... a week of complete beach relaxation for the two weeks before fall semester begins. :love: God knows I need it. We all do, I'm sure.
