No, this never happens. If you are looking to make it happen, though, it might be best not to refer to your time off as a 'glide year.'Archimedes said:Now that acceptances are coming in, anyone here who took a year off get accepted to a top 20 school?
I think DrDarwin was being facetiousArchimedes said:DrDarwin, can you elaborate?
um glide year = working. probably get a job in a lab or doing some clinical research or something or the other. dunno yet.
reason = 1. bad mcat score 2. I was really confused about whether i wanted to do an MD or Phd or both - couldn't make up my mind really until really my senior year. Now I really really know what I want to do and why, so I feel more secure applying this second round anyway.
