    okay.. MCAT 45 GPA 4.0.

    Developed a cure for IBS and started a $40 million scholarship fund for children in Rwanda. Did all of this while spending every single minute in a children's hospital playing games, emptying bed pan,s and taking care of all the paper work and never sleeping, EVER.

    that was easy

    you forgot something in the arts. Like, violin prodigy who debuted in Carnegie Hall. Varsity athlete is boring. How about a cool sport like skiing or hang-gliding instead?

    btw, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DOING THIS? To make ourselves feel worse?!

    Those people exist. They also win Rhodes Scholarships:

    http://www.rhodesscholar.org/win.html

    Elected to Phi Beta Kappa as a junior, Jeff Ishizuka is a Williams College 1960's Scholar in chemistry and has held several research assistantships. At Williams he worked on a project, funded by the National Science Foundation, deriving mathematical models for chaotic molecular behavior. He has also co-authored a paper for first year students (now submitted for publication) introducing the concepts of non-linear dynamics. Jeff studied at Oxford in his junior year on the Williams-Oxford Programme where, as a research assistant in physical chemistry, he predicted unknown energy levels in a vibrational-rotational spectrum of FeH and assigned portions of FeH's spectrum. An Eagle Scout, Jeff has received distinction as a scholar-athlete at Williams, where he was a varsity wrestler. He has also served as a writing tutor at Williams and worked with asylum seekers from Kosovo as part of Oxford's REACH UP program. While volunteering at Montaa de Luz hospice for children with HIV/AIDS in Honduras, Jeff managed and translated for volunteer construction teams, computerized and updated projects and finances, developed environmental plans, and administered the hospice for two weeks in the director's absence. He has also co-authored a successful grant proposal to assist the work of the hospice. Jeff writes poetry and has played classical piano for 15 years (enjoying Brahms and Chopin in particular).

    (Formulaic, eh?)

    the perfect med school resume goes like this:

    3.0 gpa

    28-30 mcat

    some arbitrary short term volunteering

    no research

    1 acceptance


    This outlines how to get into med school using the minimal effort plan. Why bust your ass for a 4.0 when you can get a 3.0 and still get in?

    Also, if you led a revolution wouldn't you have killed at least one person? I don't think Ghandi would be cool with that. Also, wasn't the architect of each pyramid killed after it was finished so that nobody knew the way in or out?

    Those Rhodes scholars are such obvious gunners. I'm going to have fun wailing on the premeds on there if I'm ever a PGY-III and they're only an intern since they took time to go to jolly old England.

    does anyone else hate the fact that 90% of the average pre-med resume was done in an effort to conform as closely as possible to the "perfect" med school application?

    Wouldn't a "godly" resume include more stuff that is god oriented? For example, I cursed a guy named Atlas to holding the world on his shoulders for eternity. That is pretty godly.

    Yeah, to an extent. There's all the "must-haves" of clinical experience, shadowing, volunteering, and research.

    From what I've heard, this is what med school's greatest downfall is. The destruction of a creative individual to make another slave to a sick system. But, who cares, I'm trying to sign up too.
