JimmyD had a really interesting post (http://forums.studentdoctor.net/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=013853) that gave a web address for Stanford and showed the variables looked at and weighed by adcoms. I posted this there, but thought it would make an interesting new topic. One thing I found very interesting was that Stanford listed sex as one of the ten variables looked at and weighed when they consider an applicant. I thought it didn't matter much anymore since there are almost as many female applicants as male. Then later in the page it shows more women matriculants than men (there were more male applicants though). I am a female applicant myself. Are female applicants looked at differently?
