Why are so many of the people who post on this BB willing to openly discuss their lies in attempting to gain acceptance to medical school? I find it very disturbing and I hope that others agree. Doesn't anyone feel the slightest twinge of shame that you have allowed your integrity to be compromised because you THINK that there is some theoretical advantage to misrepresenting yourself to an admissions committee? How about the honor that comes from truthfully, thoughtfully and accurately representing yourself to others despite the potential that their opinion is different than yours? It is disturbing that most posters see no shame in lying to people that will someday be their peers. Give the interviewers credit, imagine that they might like to hear a differing view. They might enjoy being challenged. Or they might respect your differences. Is it possible that the opposite will happen? Yes. But, do you want to begin your career as a non-thinking conformist or as a future leader for progressive improvement in healthcare?
