I have been following this forum for quite a while now, but just recently decided to join and post a thread pertaining to gathering information as a prospective podiatry student. I guess my confusion spawns from the fact that I only received one reply from an individual that thankfully is geared towards helping future applicants/students like myself. I thought these forums, especially the ones entitled "pre-podiatry" would focus more on helping future students then spending the majority of time responding to posts that in my opinion do not relate to anything of importance, i.e. the rankings thread that currently has 25 replies. I know this may seem hypocritical being that I too am writing what many of you will believe to be a pointless thread, but I'm doing so for all the other other followers that rely on this site to provide helpful information, as opposed to pointless banter.
