SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Personally I don't care what other people think because I know that my 32 MCAT, 3.8 GPA undergrad and my grad work are way above anything that's on the chart that begins this post. I worked my ass off to make sure that I was one of the best applicants and not just the best black applicant, and earned my spot.
