Third annual med school admittance March Madness Bracket!
Let's get it started!

(visit the ladies here: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?p=9396861#post9396861 )

To that end, I will pick two candidates, square them off "Sweet Sixteen" style, and let you make their case for admission, listing strengths and weaknesses. Highest number of votes moves on to the next round. I'll give voting one day per match-up.

Hall of Champions
2008: Darth Vader
2009: Batman


Things to remember:
1) If I can't tell who you voted for, it doesn't count. (In the event of a tie, my vote breaks it)
2) I will tally the votes every night. The new face-off's wont be placed until after 5pm, so don't risk it and get your votes in before then!!! Check back daily for new match-ups!
3) Use everything you know! We've all seen that stats aren't everything.
4) MCAT scores are in the phys/verb/bio order

Alright, Here goes!
On your mark.....Get set, GO! :D:D:D

FIRST MATCH UP: East Bracket:

Sherlock Holmes

GPA: 3.7
MCAT: 36R (12/12/12)
Why do you want to be a doctor? So I can start saying "It's graduate, dear Watson."

VS

Dr. Horrible


GPA: 3.9
MCAT: 35Q (12/12/11)
.Why do you want to be a doctor? Because an MD in horribleness sounds better than a PhD.

Make your case!

W/o extracurrix it has to be Dr. Horrible.
Lol. I think we know their ECs :p

Dr. Horrible, because everyone recognizes the prestige that comes from a spot on the Evil League of Evil... and we all know prestige is everything in this game ;)

Sherlock Holmes. I don't even know who that other guy is. I thought it was Neil Patrick Harris at first.

Sherlock by default. Don't know who the other guy is. And why are the men represented by some apparently very intelligent individuals, while the candidates in the women's thread are headed for the Caribbean?

If you guys don't know who Dr. H is before voting, definitely go watch it.

And as far as the ladies - it's only round one! There will be others, have no fear :)

Sherlock because he's mysterious and rockin the trench coat.

Edit: Ok Sammich, I watched all three acts and I'll change my vote to Dr. Horrible because he has this awkwardness about him that will bring in the ladies (= more patients = more $$$). He also got Penny frozen yogurt, and damnit, I want someone to get me frozen yogurt.

Sherlock will become the next amazing diagnostic MD.

Using his incredible - though sometimes unorthodox - deductive reasoning, he will become the House of fictional character doctors. Except his addiction is smoking, not painkillers - that's an automatic leg up. Speaking of leg up, he doesn't have a cane.

He also has the help of one the top PA prospects in the country, Watson.

As much as I love Dr. Horrible, he didn't do so hot on all the ethics questions I threw at him.

I vote for Sherlock

Dr. Horrible for sure! He might not have the deductive reasoning skills of Sherlock, but he is involved in music and is an inventor (his freeze-ray may come in handy for removing warts and such)... and he certainly has more personality than Sherlock. Sherlock is a know-it-all. That would get annoying when he continues patronizing people.

Dr. Horrible.

He's a caring, compassionate individual who does his own choreography. Sherlock's just another drunken rambler who accidentally falls into opportune places.


Don't let accident continue to favor the disproportionately lucky.

Dr. Horrible is service-minded! Here's him volunteering at a soup kitchen for the homeless:
