    Are you offended because you don't know how to read or something? You didn't want it, you threw it away. I don't see the reason for the angst.

    Tell the truth, Dittozip. It was your gunner friend's book and you threw it away, and now you're mad because you didn't get one. Isn't that really what's going on here?

    Haha, yea, What is the big deal, they only need 1 person to decide to apply because of that book, and it revenue from that application vindicates them sending out like 15 of them. I am pretty sure they know what they are doing :rolleyes:

    :laugh: Yeh. You know, I like getting med-school stuff in the mail and in email if for no other reason than it temporarily distracts me from the reality that there are, as of yet, no interview offers. ;)

    If they were smart they would have sent me the book. I am still on the fence about applying there. Why no book Dartmouth? :confused: I promise not to throw it out....

    I think the OP is justified in his anger, Jackie. I HATE junk mail, internet pop-up adds, spam, and other adds directed at me other than those on television. Unless I request information from a school, I do not want it. I perceive school advertising as tacky and desperate.

    annoyance maybe. anger i don't think so. what's there to be angry about? it's not like we are being overwhelmed by spam. most are recieving no mail, or one, two maybe three pieces at the most. It's part of life, and like it's been said before we gave amcas permission. just throw it away or delete it and go on with your lives

    does this mean they will give me an auto-invite to itnerview since I'm dsiadvataged? makes as much sense as the other auto-invites i guess. I want one of them auto-invites...

    i got the book but i had marked them on amcas. then decided not to send in the sec. and now i'm re-considering but proably wont send in the sec.
