Really, I heard the opposite that it is liberal. I read the story that lots of Duke students wore black after Bush won the 2004 election. I don't know, maybe it is an urban myth.

That Loma Linda stuff is BS. I am a Christian myself and I can't stand that my religion is used to fuel hate filled bigotry.

that duke rumor is not true, and really the campus is not as conservative as people say it is, but you can't compare it to really liberal schools like berkeley

Hi,
I'm a homosexual pre-med student, and i have been involved with a campus student group organization that strives to promote awareness and tolerance for homosexuals among the student body. do you think my chances of acceptance to med school would decrease if i put this as part of my extracurricular activities?
Thanx :)

i personally think that you should try your best to represent yourself as accurately as possible. if being homosexual is part of who you are and if you are passionate about spreading awareness at your potential medical school, i think that you should include this activity. some medical schools are looking for this type of diversity. i think it would be unwise to leave something that is important about yourself out only so you can be admitted to a school, who wants to go to a school that would not be accepting of who you are anyways? :thumbdown:
good luck! :)

Wow...to the OP I think you should take the hint that those ACTUALLY IN med school think you should go ahead and be open...we actually would know because we go to school with openly gay students and realize that the administration actually WANTS this diversity (at least at UNC)...and all the people telling you to leave it out are applying so they really don't know...

...you decide who to listen too...and ultimately either way its your choice, but if you want to be open I say do it!

uh...anyone else notice that this post is from 2002...i.e. the OP is long-gone from the application process, and hopefully finishing MS4!

What is "homosexual awareness and tolerance" ?

Have you met people who aren't aware of homosexuality?
Or who don't tolerate them?

:rolleyes:

I was just going through this posting,and I am not really sure if that's how it really works.My best friend is Gay, and he is very open about that.He has graduated from Tuft(He is a dentist) and he is very open about that.He is always very open about that, his partner is always there in any of the occassion in School(we went to the Harvard together).And there is faculty,student group and even lecture session in school,which I have attented with my friend.Maybe you should try some school which is more open to this,and be urself:idea:

Just an aside - college campuses are liberal, but I'd say a bunch of middle-aged doctors are more likely to be conservative.

Since this post is four years old, does anyone know the OP or know what happened to the OP? Did he end up with an acceptance? I searched for his old posts, but only two came up.

(Edited) REPOST-----

Here it is, right from the Loma Linda website, their "sexual standards policy".

"All forms of sexual expression and conduct between heterosexuals outside of marriage, or between homosexuals, are contrary to the ideals of the University and will result in disciplinary action."

http://www.llu.edu/llu/handbook/6q.htm

And here is something else....

"And regarding homosexuals, the President of Loma Linda University, Lyn Behrens, was recently quoted in a Riverside, California newspaper saying that 'if someone makes (another) lifestyle choice, we would invite them to pursue their careers elsewhere.'"
http://www.sdakinship.org/anotherpov/06.htm

and another...

"Discrimination in Loma Linda ? In a recent interview in the Riverside Press Enterprise, B. Lyn Behrens, MBBS, President of Loma Linda University and Medical Center, said she makes "no apologies" for the fact that the institution does not accept lesbians or gay men. Although this institution is affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church, discrimination is a violation of California law. Martha Matthews is interested in hearing from anyone who has been discriminated against by Loma Linda University and Medical Center."

Wow. My respect for that school just went to ****.
