SDN is but a VERY small sampling of pre-meds and med students. for example, i know for a fact that UF has accepted well over 120 people, but how many of them have shown that here? maybe 5-10? i think there is more representation among applicants to private and/or prestigious schools than to state schools, but i think you can see my point.

I realize that not all applicants participate in SDN, hell I wouldn't be hear if I didn't hear about it from a friend about a week ago. This is more of a poll, like TV ratings. I don't expect there to be a 100 people responding but if I get a good number of people, it will be more encouraging and give me more hope for the summer
