    Why would SDN members be any different than the general applicant pool? After all there is a wide spectrum of people who use SDN. THis is not an elitist organization.

    Okay Barton I am curious to find out what the results will be. I hope that the sample size is large enough so that it will hold some statistical weight.

    I think the poll is useful, but you really should have had categories from 2.70-2.79, 2.80-2.89, and 2.90-2.99... I'm really curious about the people &lt;3.0.

    i guess we should keep bumping this so people will vote.

    for GPA, should it be ugrad? or include all post-secondary grades?

    I don't think people are being honest in the poll....do you guys think it's reasonable that 23% of the voters have over a 3.9 gpa? That seems a little high......but maybe I'm wrong. :confused:

    who knows. hopefully enough honest people vote to make the effects of the dishonest people negligent.

    I got in with a 3.64, a 27T on the MCAT (heh, I studied for a few weeks before the exam. I flew in from Germany to take it two days later. :p )

    In my interview experience, GPA doesn't matter half as much as what you do outside the classroom and your personal character.

    Get you some clinical experience now! Volunteer at a hospital, take a medical records job, anything! Believe me, it weighs in heavily and it helps tremendously. Especially those with less than stellar grades and test scores.
     
  18. oops i voted this morning by accident because i thought it was just SDNers' GPAs, not accepted SDNers, but as of this afternoon, my vote is legit! and damn does it feel good.

    Very top heavy. I guess that is the trend now. Less people are applying but those who are and get in are very strong academically. I was told that 20 years ago someone with a 3.3 29 MCAT made up the middle of the matriculants. Now those numbers seem weak.
