okay, i worked my BUTT off for 4 years at UCLA to earn a 3.8 GPA at UCLA majoring in biochemistry. I've worked in a structural biology lab for 40 hrs/week ever since my second year. i volunteered at a clinic by house. and, i scored a 10/13/12/S on my MCATs and was not offered a secondary from Stanford. How could they not even give me a chance????????????? this is making me lose faith in the application process. my roommate, god knows i love him, is a minority with a 3.1 GPA, 27 MCAT and he got a secondary. he's been jumpin up and down laughing at me for the last 48 hours. i have absolutely no problem with affirmative action, but i believe the system has failed in a big way today.
