I realize that this topic has been debated ad nauseum in the pre-allo forum, but I think answers might differ given the more personal nature of MD/PhD admissions... I'm wondering why a number of regular posters on this website (hateroftheyear and Mr Tee come to mind) decided to delete their mdapps (or stop linking to it) during the app process. Were you scared off by comments from adcoms? Are you just paranoid de rigeur? Would you recommend that I - and others about to embark on this arduous process - follow your lead?
