    As do I.

    This site makes me more and more nervous as I see people with better stats and ECs which make me worry everyday about my chances yet I still come here for some reason!

    Well alot of the main posters who were here as premeds I still see around quite a bit as med students. So I'd say no for the most part with the hardcore posters.

    take a look at the post count for TexasTriathlete....he was probably as hardcore as they come. He had a blackberry and literally posted all day, even while at work. Now, he posts like two times a month (vacations not included).

    it seems people start to dwindle after med school starts... but then prob come back when it is time to take your step exams or apply to residency.

    I think the SDN craze dies down in med school. Not that I'd know for sure since i'm not in med school yet. HOWEVER, after visiting the other forum, I've noticed it takes a pretty long time for their threads to get going and to get responses. I take that to mean that the med students have so much work to get done that they just don't have time for SDN.

    id say the numbers are a more significant factor in this regard - there are simply millions of pre-meds but not so many actual med students.

    Word. I should be doing small group now. I stayed away for most of the first quarter, but I had some downtime during winter break and here I am. I'll probably disappear again when I get closer to exams.

    It hasn't for me.

    I don't post as much, but I'm still on here all the time.

    it is a hard addiction to beat. also, i think there is some schadenfreude (sp?) going on with us. watching you suffer through a process we have behind us.

    sorry. sucks to be you.

    No, its still a time sink. I use it as a way to get away from the books now and again, or as a method of procrastination. As a whole I would say its more of the same time looking, alot less posting

    Are you kidding? I'm looking forward to seeing how the next class does. Seeing the pre-med anxiety unfold and the crazies come out of lurker status when I'm NOT in the middle of it is going to be terribly entertaining.

    Can't wait to be the wise old med student: "GUYS, stop freaking out, it's EARLY, if you didn't get an interview by August you don't have to start thinking of reapplying...". Heheheeheh

    Hahahaha, I recently got a blackberry and my first website bookmarked was the SDN forums. Since then I've been checking it waaaaay too frequently. When the power went out in my entire neighborhood last night and I had only 1 bar of battery left on my BB, I still had to check SDN before I went to bed :love: It may continue as a med student as I'd also like to tip the applicants and tell them to stop freaking out so much :rolleyes:
