    The most important factors are Step 1/2 scores and LOR.

    Grades are a factor but they are secondary due to that fact that step scores are a reflection of the knowledge you gained in BS and Clinicals, so grades become superfluous once you score gets high enough.

    When exactly during med school do you take the USMLE's anyway?

    How exactly do people like you apply to medical school without knowing basic information about medical school?

    Step 1 - after basic sciences

    Step 2 - before graduation, often in the 4th year (as it is a requirement for graduation and residency)

    How exactly do you think we learn? BY ASKING. You probably knew the answer to every single question in the world when you were born, so you never had to ask anyone a single question in your life huh? Oh and btw I wouldn't want to be your patient, cause if I were to ask you a simple question, you'd give me a rude and sarcastic remark, like how to do with mostly every post here on SDN (as I have noticed) and over at valuemd. This world is full of obnoxious doctors and professionals concerned with wealth, power, fame, and fortune, without the slightest hint of selflessness. And you are one of them.

    Wrong

    You learn by studying credible sources. Something like the school's website, dummy....lol

    Not other people who could be as clueless as you.

    Patients ask doctor questions because doctors are authoritative sources of medical information. Big difference, but I would not expect your mind to deal with that without first asking your mom if it is okay for you to think on your own.

    Just make it through MERP before you try to judge what would make a good doctor, sweetheart.

    *chuckles* I know you may think you're a really "cool" and "strong" person but let me break something to you: If you *met* my mom she'd have you running with your head between your legs.

    Did you use the words "you", "your mom" and "my head between HER legs"?

    That is just wrong. You are a sick person!:thumbdown:

    The intent of my statement was that in an argument she would utterly destroy you...only YOU would take that and turn it into something dirty and disgusting. You're calling me sick? You just contradicted yourself.

    Listen closely. I do not want any part of your mother and I am not interested in becoming your new daddy!!

    I know it is hard to cry your little blue eyes out ever night for the daddy that never loved you and left your mommy, but I WILL NOT BE YOUR NEW DADDY.

    Stop trying to play matchmaker!

    Listen up. I DO NOT want sexual relations with your MOTHER. It just wouldn't work out. Your mother is old and senile, and she doesn't know how to raise children (just look at you). So if you want me to bed the old HAG, I REFUSE.

    My mother is dead, so it would be hard to do anything with what is left of her.

    Heres a question to you, fellow weight lifter, how do you like SGU? Hows the social life over there? I know about the academics, I just want to know if the girls are as 'hot' as they say they are..:cool:
