Ok, here's my deal; I'm trying to decide whether or not I should designate myself as disadvantages. My folks don't make a lot of money (50k), I'm the oldest of four children (3 of us are in college right now), and I've paid every dime of my schooling on my own (as attested to by my huge student loans [20k at my in-state public university]). Looking at that I would say I'm disadvantged but I know there are many more people in worse shape than I am. I think I'm disadvantaged but I don't want come off as a whiny brat who's looking for an edge in getting into med school. Any comments would be appreciated. AEKDB.
