if you're only posting in the pre-allo forum to increase your chances of getting in, why then you are being disingenuous and the adcoms will see through your little charade.
Seriously, though, it would be interesting to attempt to correlate posting volume to # of acceptances. I'm guessing there *would* be a statistically significant correlation. Maybe my first published research!
Research has already been done in this area. Every 100 posts to the Pre-Allo forum increases your chances of getting in by 1%. Every 100 posts in the MCAT forum increases your score by 1 point. Makes perfect sense.
You're only 8 away from 5% more likely! For Heaven's sake, keep posting, man!
look where it got me man.
Is this true, or just a joke thread? Is there a place for number of SDN posts on med school applications? I've never heard about this. Thanks for the help.
Yes, it most definitely will increase your chances. It's a little known fact that SDN is supported and funded by the AAMC. The moderators are all paid employees.
PLEASE note the sarcasm.
Would we make something like this up? When you sign up for an SDN account, you have the option of adding your AMCAS ID#. Once you do that, each post you make is credited towards your total count. If you forgot to do that or didn't see the option, it's not too late. You can still add your ID#.
they're watching us!!!!
When I withdrew from a school's waitlist, the school said that it was surprised because of the good things I said about it on SDN. I'm not kidding
I guess stalkers can come in many forms (in your case, in the form of a medical institution.)
Where is this at? I've been looking through the control panel for the better part of 3 hours and I can't find it anywhere. Can you give me exact instructions? Thanks, this is awesome that med schools reward us for our hard work on this forum.
posting for better chances
You might want to think a little more critically about the likely existence/non-existence of this feature.
Seriously? 3 hours?
Yeah. I was looking too. I even checked out the FAQ and the help section, but there isn't even a mention of this feature. You better tell them to add it to the help, otherwise people like me are missing out. I mean, I probably spent 4 or 5 hours looking through this stuff, and not being able to find the place to add my AAMC #. I have to work tomorrow, and I'm still up at 3AM because I got excited and wanted to do this as soon as possible. Could someone please follow through with the specific instructions so I can do this by tomorrow?
By the way, what about all those poor people who don't use SDN? They shouldn't be penalized just because they never heard about the website. Do they get some sort of, like, default credit if they've never posted on SDN?
willthatsall & nanomed dreams, are you guys serious?
you guys do understand that there are gullible premed people out there who do take everything literally...
and tho i like to have fun with them just like the next guy...
if they are serious...then thats not good.
you two up there. there is no such thing. this is a JOKE thread. or else you would see everyone on sdn with 10K posts already.
Nanomed is being sarcastic, but it was a bit too subtle to pick up.
Willthatsall...Wake up! Usually med schools don't care about what you post here, but they do read over interview feedbacks of their schools every once in a while.
There is no way those two were being serious.
At least, that's what I'm telling myself
I was very serious about it. I spend upwards of 5 hours a day on this board and I think it's only fair that med schools reward me for it. If I wanted I could be out doing EC's or getting clinical experience, but I choose to stay right here and contribute to this board. I deserve credit. And don't mock me like that, I feel very strongly that I deserve this. It's not funny.
You can always include "I post on SDN" as an extracirricular activity on your AMCAS.
