this is the first post that I've created. I have been reading SDN posts since my Junior year of high school, but as admissions deadlines near, I have decided to start using it more seriously. A little bit about myself:
I am 22 F, Caribbean black, bisexual

First off, I'm extremely lucky to be in this position. But I'd be lying if I didn't say that this hellish application cycle is ending with a pretty tough choice. I've gone through this application cycle interviewing for both MSTP and MD-only programs. I want to pursue doctoral work in a...

What happens when you mix medicine, dentistry and the undisputed Queen of Pop? Watch this year's Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine music video to find out.

Just registered for the summer course and was wondering if any past students could provide any tips to succeed in the class. How are labs? How manageable is it to get A- or above? Did students tend to be collaborative? Were you able to take time to relax a little (even just an hour or so)? How...
I recently got accepted to UNC and Harvard, and am rather conflicted on which one to choose. I intend to specialize upon graduating dental school, and hope to explore academia if possible. With both schools having exceptional programs and unique strengths, I am having trouble choosing one over...
I'm just wondering psych training at Yale or Harvard, what does it take to get in? I'm an IMG but I'm american.
There is one program I'm really interested in. It's an advocacy training pathway which aligns with my future career goals. I'll be doing my USMLEs after graduating this...
I am doing an away rotation next month at Massachusetts General in their children's hospital. I just realized my white coat has all sorts of stains on it that I can't show up to an away wearing, so I need a new one. Question is, do med students actually wear their white coats at Mass...
Hello everyone! I'm what most postbac-premed offerers consider a "career-changer." I didn't know what I wanted to do straight out of high school, and settled on studying my passion--music. I now will be graduating with my B.A. in Music in December, but over the course of my junior and senior...
Hi! I am applying to medical school this cycle and wanted to know what a good school list would be with my credentials:
UG School: Harvard
Overall GPA: 3.6
Science GPA: 3.3
got a few B's frosh/soph year but significant upward trend of all A's junior/senior year
Interview seasons is behind now and the stories are still fresh.
I am hoping this would be a semi-light-hearted kind of thing to get some thing off the chest/vent maybe.
Worst 2018 goes to University of Tennessee in Memphis closely followed by Mayo in Rochester.
UTHSC was the most...

So I will be applying this summer but I am still trying to solidify my list of where I am going to apply. Mainly, I am debating whether I should even try applying to schools like Harvard, Penn, UCLA, and UCSF (Also, Baylor sounds like a great option however I have heard that it is really...
I'm currently a political science major at Rice University. Ever since middle school, I was always split between medicine and politics. Since I was 14, no matter how much I explored other options, I never strayed from these two areas. I ultimately decided to major in political...
Hi everyone! Never thought I'd be posting something like this!
I got way more love with my applications than I was expecting, which is making the decision making process really difficult. Being of really low income, cost is my number one concern in deciding where to go. These are my three most...
Hey yall, I wanted to start a thread for folks who are going to (or thinking about) going to Harvard next year!
Some starting questions:
Has anyone thought about when they are going to move to Boston and how they are going to find housing?
Does anyone know what kind of acceptance rate the PhD...
Prior to applying to medical schools, I am pursuing a Masters program. I've gotten into Masters programs at Harvard, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford. I am currently at Stanford so I am really familiar with the community- but does anyone have any insight or opinions on...
I'm currently fielding a few internship offers, as a Junior and Computational Biology Major. Despite talking to a few advisors and reps from each program, I am still extremely stressed in deciding which to accept. I want to pursue MDPhD programs after taking a gap year for some sort of...
Hi all! I'm at a very strange and promising crossroads and would love to get some feedback, because I'm truly at a loss for what direction to take.
I just got accepted to the Hopkins MPH Full-time program for the upcoming year, which I honestly thought I had no shot at. While waiting for that...

I just want to get a discussion going about some of the top dental schools (UCLA, UCSF, Michigan, Harvard, Columbia, Penn, etc), and I would love to hear some of the experiences from actual dental students from each school, or anyone who is knowledgeable in this area. Basically, what...
Anybody have any opinions on the program? Basically, Harvard is offering online biochem, genetics, physiology, and immunology for a certificate of completion, geared towards those interested in medicine. It's $1800 for all 4 classes, and each class is 10 weeks long. There's various registration...

I'm currently a high school senior planning on enrolling as a freshman at a school in Boston during the fall (unless college notifications on April 1st really surprise me and I end up somewhere else around the Northeast).

Longtime lurker but I need some perspective on a tough medical school choice. I received the David Geffen Scholarship to UCLA, but I was also admitted to Harvard. I'm pretty certain that I'll pursue surgery, and I want to stay in academic medicine.
Pros of UCLA:
+My family is middle class, so a...
I just got accepted into HES's Postbac Pre-med program and I am slightly confused on what the program truly does for you. I took the majority of my pre-reqs at UVM (where I have a bachelors degree), so I qualify for a committee letter at UVM, and it says to qualify for HES's committee...
