    I see all these people from the East coast and Cali, but any others near me?

    I did see a post from a guy that got into KU, his state school...so, maybe you're not alone after all.

    There's a user named Woooo, but I think he started med school this fall. His name is from the "WOOOOOOoooooooooPIG" chant from the Razorbacks.

    You might search for him, if you want some Arkansas company. :)

    Hey, Dustin. I go to the University of Arkansas and have been reading posts on this board for a while. Your lonely post inspired me to register just to let you know that you aren't alone! What are you studying and when are you graduating? I'm majoring in Food Science with plans to graduate in May. What schools are you going to apply to?

    No! You are not the only pre-med student from Arkansas. I attend Henderson State University and am in the medical school process. I took the MCAT in August and I am fearfully awaiting my scores. If you want to stay in touch email me!

    Well, I am a sophomore at UCA. I took a year off after high school and did mission volunteer work (cannot wait to show that off on the app). But I am a Spanish major, doing my prereq's... I am gonna apply to UAMS of course, U of CO because I am from there (my folks live there), UKansas (maybe, San Antonio (the whole spanish thing), Washington StL (just to see if I am gonna get in), and maybe UT and Vandy... I dunno, I may just go for UAMS... who knows, that a ways off. I am trying hard to do some research, and I works nights at the big baptist in Little Rock and 2 days a week at an ophtho doc's office here in Conway. Sound busy? Oh yeah. Thats the way I like it.

    By the way, if I can inspire just one SDN'er, it has been worth the while! :) Email me!

    Well, I'm not from Cali or the east coast. People often think I'm from Arkansas, because of my state abbreviation (AK). :D

    Dustin,

    Well..I took the Kaplan this summer and most of the time I averaged about a 24...so I am thinking that I will make somewhere in that range. I know that that is not some of the great scores that people post on here most of the time, but that's about what I was making at that time. I felt that the verbal was more difficult than the Kaplan, the PS easier, and the bio about the same. Soo...I don't know. I applied to 9 schools (3 osteopathic and 9 allopathic) and I have recieved one secondary so far. Anyway...talk to you later.

    Keep me informed as to how it goes! I am so worried about the MCAT but I have always been a good test taker!

    Having lived in both AK, and AR, no offense but AK is much more incredible. I always hated when people called AK Arkansas!
