Hey SDN!! I've been following this board almost religiously since June, but this is the first time I've posted. I just wanted to show my appreciation to all of you for sharing your successes and stresses with everyone, making the whole process a definite learning experience. Does anyone agree? I owe a lot to you all and I wish the best for everyone. Given my stats, I feel VERY fortunate to have received some of the opportunities that I have been given. The value of perserverance should definitely NOT be underestimated. Just to be fair, here are my "stats:" Overall: 20 year old college senior, VA resident Major: engineering GPA: 3.28 MCAT: 9V, 10B, 11P, QW Interviews (past & future): UVA, EVMS, VCU, Duke, GW, Hopkins, Georgetown, U-MD Acceptances: UVA, VCU Love you guys!!
