I know that this may seem to be an odd, even stupid question, but do those of you who are in medical school know if looks are important? I've been studying my (_|_) off and my GPA is sky high, but a lot of people say that I look young for my age . One person even said I may not be taken seriously because I look too young. "You don't look like a doctor, you're too cute" were his exact words; "cute" as in "like a little girl cute" . Will I not be taken seriously because I look "too young" and not profressional enough ? Lately, I've been browsing through the medschooldiaries. All of these people "look" like doctors, whatever that look may be . Maybe I'm worried about nothing . Grades, publications, MCAT scores, and extra curricular activities count the most right ? I'm just afraid that looks may influence my acceptance into a good medical school . I just need some reassurance, I guess .
