    why are we still talking about AA when we haven't even begun to discuss thank-you notes or the proper interview attire?

    you guys are all idiots.

    all thank you notes must be at least 10 pages long, with an abstract, references, and written in calligraphy.

    if you come to the interview wearing anything resembling hunter green, you will dragged out into the nearest busy intersection and shot.

    DOs are entirely worthless, second class citizens, and anyone who attempts to practice medicine under the facade of "osteopathy" should be subject to fraud litigation.

    doctors are too busy worrying about URMs getting into med school than to worry about those trivial matters such as abortion.

    i think that covers it

    ;)

    you might want to consider doing a post bacc, or applying to carribean med schools, the bad ones at least. the gpa cut off at SUNY downstate last year was a 6.5 on a 4.0 scale. i'm sorry silvercholla, but you are a moron :p

    hey guys, I'm still wondering....do you think my secondaries should be typed?

    I was thinking of using Egyptian Hieroglyphics to demonstrate my multicultural perspective on life.

    Thoughts?

    Well I volunteer at a homeless shelter in Nigeria and during the week I fly back to tge states to perform miracles, and do research on the quantum physics of time travel and its effects on healing the dead. Oh and I also am going to pledge to a nunnery. Is that enough? Gee I sure hope so.

    What about the chances of an URM nontrad student with only a 3.98 and a 41T?

    I would personally be ashamed to be a DO..........I mean come on............I went a specialist at a top 10 school who was the head of his department and he didn't know what he was talking about at all...........I think I value DO's less than sanitation engineers (isn't everyone an engineer these days?)

    sounds like a good idea. dont use other trite dead languages like latin, attic greek, or sanskrit like the average run of the mill applicant does. you really want to separate yourself from the pack :p

    Oh no! Silvercholla you just shattered all my hopes and dreams. :( Now I'll never get into med school with my crappy 3.99 GPA and my lousy 45Z MCAT...goddamned URMs!!!!

    On another note, what color cockring should I wear to my interview? Should it match my suit or my shoes...you know just in case the adcom wants to give me a physical before the interview.

    I wasn't trying to be sarcastic. Dern, I am just tired of hearing about AA because there are always going to be strong agreement and disagreements.
    How about an URM Support Group for URM going through pre-med, med, and residency.
    PS-This is coming from a URM.

    I don't know. Just make sure to apply to a wide range of schools, and don't feel bad if you're waitlisted. If you ARE waitlisted, tho, be sure to send a letter of intent.

    maybe you should abstain from the cock ring in case they decide to give you a reach around during the interview..?

    Not yet to be honest. This thread perhaps covers a mere fraction of the crap that has been posted on the pre-allo forum...well except for the part about the cockring. :)

    Explosivo is right. We have only scratched the surface, and we have yet to cover the most important issue, which (of course) is whether we should staple or tape our pictures to the secondaries, and what the exact measurements of the pictures should be, AND the perils of sending in home-made vs. glamour shots photos. But I admit, the cockring was unchartered territory.

    Get your priorities straight, people!!:rolleyes:

    DW, I never pad. I am not a post padder and I may have to report you to a moderator for flaming me and deliberately singleing me out as a padder.

    To ask a real question... How does this letter of intent thing work? I mean, sure it'd be in bad faith to send one if you didn't mean it, but is it technically/legally binding?
