    I know it's no big deal to most people, but I'm looking forward to changing my status from Pre-Med to Med Student on my SDN profile (28 more days!); and, I'm waiting until I'm officially in my classes to do it - no jumping the gun for me!

    Silly...?
    Maybe.

    Symbollic...?
    Mostly.

    Meaningful...?
    It is to me!

    Just thought I'd share my excitment over the first official step for me!:hardy:

    Truthfully, I've also thought about this a lot. It will be a very exciting and meaningful event for me.

    I've also thought about posting about it on here but I thought you guys would think I was being silly. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there!

    In the overall scheme of your whole life, 1 year is nothing. Be patient, create a great application, and it will happen. I didn't get in my first year of applying, but it worked out in the end...

    Good luck!

    I am very excited to change mine as well....

    After lurking on SDN for over five years, I'm finally on the ladder. Bottom rung, but still the ladder.

    I've been debating when to change it. Now that the next app season has started and I'm not a part of it anymore I really want to change over, but I think I'll wait until I've moved and am getting closer to our start date.

    What's up with all you early changers - do you open your Christmas presents in November, too? (;))

    I'm waiting until classes start. Or at least until I've officially registered...

    Haha...no. not even close. There's a reason they're called MSI or OMSI.

    Also, I was looking at your MDApps (sorry to post here but there was nowhere to leave a comment on the apps page)--and you probably know this better than I, and you do have over 200 credits, but can you enter med school without a bachelors? IIRC it was a req for CCOM, even though you're not applying there.

    I dont know what IIRC is, but I do have a bachelor's degree...i don't know why it didn't have that option to let me list the degree I earned from FIU. So, I just put it up now. Should look more accurate.

    PS: and just to clarify from my earlier post--I wasn't trying to be mean, I just had an incorrect understanding is all. Thanks for clearing me up.

    I registered yesterday, and I have a "Medical Student" ID badge now. And I'm going to wait until orientation to change my status.

    Two more weeks. I am going to hold out until that first day of orientation and change my status that very moment. And yes, that is very silly but so delicious at the same time :D

    I might actually wait until after classes start. I'm not sure going to orientation really makes me a medical student.

    Fine, fine, you have a point. Is it better if I change it on the second day of the orientation when I meet my body buddies and smell some cadavers? :laugh:
