Vain much.Just wondering if being a very attractive student helps (female), during the interview at all? Someone had made a joke about hot girls getting in, just wondering if it may be a little help lol, since most pre-meds are somewhat nerdyish??
The biggest mistake you can do during an interview is dressing inappropriate. I definitely saw some girls that thought they were the hottest thing ever and looked out of place and not professional. They will remember that and it won't be favorable review.Just wondering if being a very attractive student helps (female), during the interview at all?

Actually... in your other thread, you did mention you fit the so-cal, surfer mold and would have no problem finding a lab partner.lol not vain, i didn't say I was the attractive student ... just a hypothetical situation lol

As good as you may think you look, there are tons of "nerdyish" girls out there who are just as good looking as you might be... and who aren't banking on their looks to give them an advantage. They can also hold their own in intelligent discussions... so it's not like that cringing feeling when Kim Kardashian tries to act smart and philosophical. Just sayin'.
Oh, and did ya'll know there's actually an R2D2 swim suit? Niiicee...
this is 100% what I was going to say.There is nowhere in this world that looks do not help...If someone tells you otherwise, I will wonder in which planet they have been.
Within limits. I think really attractive females may have a double-edged sword - I would probably try to over-compensate with conservative attire.this is 100% what I was going to say.
Unprofessional appearance will disqualify you, but anything you can do to look more attractive than the next candidate (while remaining 100% professional) will definitely score you some (subtle) points. It's a factor. Not huge in any way. But a small factor still has some weight.
5'11", but I have that Spanish charm. I will run that hospital yet!Yup, assuming you're an attractive male well over 6'0".
Less true in medicine though than the business world. You probably would still have a better shot running the hospital than a shorter average looking guy.
I don't see how this can be resolved without you posting a picture of yourself...after which I'd feel more qualified to lend an opinion.true, like I said, hypothetical. But I have seen some very pretty female residents at the hospital I volunteer at, along with female residents who don't care for their appearance at all.
