    SDN acting up for me for weeks?

    Hi everyone! So a couple weeks ago I got an alert that the SDN website was under construction and the phone app became unusable. I deleted it and haven't been able to find it again to redownload. Now when I login to SDN online I rarely get notifications from "watched" threads. Anyone knows...

    Teaching before medical school?

    Hello SDN. I am a little ahead of schedule as far as my undergraduate course works goes (dual credit stuff in high school) and was considering maybe teaching (junior high or high school) for a year before medical school. Providing my GPAs, MCAT, and other admission criteria are on par with a...

    Adding schools after initial submission

    Dear SDN, Hope y'all are doing alright. I am on hold with the AAMC but I fear I will not get through to them in time to have this question answered, so I thought I could turn to SDN. If I submit to 9 schools tonight that is $140+$40+$40+$40 ect. If I submit a few more once I have the money...

    How are people on SDN paying for this cycle?

    The advice I see most commonly is to apply broadly. Getting into med school is very challenging and it would be foolish to apply to fewer than say 14 schools. I know 14 is the "average" but I'm using SDN wisdom to set the stage for my question to the SDN community. I will be relying entirely...

    Looking for advice on what implications does the following IA have

    SDN, I'm a freshman student and I recently received what I would consider an IA for a parking violation (received an in-house citation for parking in an administrative/staff space at around 8:00pm for approximately 15 minutes, can explain if necessary). Parking violations are, by university...

    Berkeley Review (TBR 2013), Examkrackers, Kaplan

    Hi Everyone, I'm trying to get rid of these books as I have no need for them after finishing the MCAT. I took the 2015 test with these books and I did well enough to apply to many schools. I know the value of these books have depreciated, but the content is still applicable. As long as you...

    Somebody you know try to figure out your SDN username?

    I'm so annoyed that this happened to me because I like my old account and literally had to make a new one today because enough was enough... So one of my friends that knew I used SDN is actively trying to figure out which username is mine (i.e. reading through people's post histories if I...

    Going to a med school on the east coast. Any advice on how to get a residency position at a UC?

    Hi! I am going to start medical school in the east coast in August this year. I am a California resident and am very much interested in coming back to CA for residency. I was wondering how difficult is it to get a residency position at a UC from a decently ranked medical school (50-70th best...

    MD New to SDN. What is my outlook? (Haven't taken MCAT yet)

    Medical school was something that was on my radar in college, but I never felt like it was 100% what I wanted to do until after I graduated (I didn't have enough clinical exposure to really know one way or another). I've since shadowed doctors for about 25 hours and I do have around 100 hrs of...

    Everybody Needs to Calm Down (2017 App Cycle)

    I've posted this before, and I'm sure i'll post it again at some point during this cycle, but chill out. Seriously, its the beginning of September, and there's already threads of people asking how many IIs they should have. By any standard, it is still very early in the cycle. Some schools...

    Penn State Hershey Rank

    Hey all. I will most likely be attending Penn State and could not be happier. For curiosity sakes, I was wondering if anyone has any clue or guess as to where Penn State would rank in terms of research and care in US World & News rankings. They are Unranked which means they do not submit their...

    Scoring Kaplan vs. Raw Score Conversions

    Hey guys! I just took a practice PAT section and my score that Kaplan gave me was different than the raw score conversion. I know they scale it based on how well you did compared to others but has anyone else had this happen? The difference was 2 points which is huge on the DAT. I just wasn't...

    I don't use Premed101 (never even heard about it). But this link also talks about SDN. http://bemoacademicconsulting.com/blog/files/top-5-reasons-to-avoid-online-premed-forums Mainly, is it true that students could be traced back and get in trouble for what they've asked on these forums? I...
