    Don't Do Drugs. Dont play World of Warcraft Either. Don't take advice from random strangers pretending to be doctors from online forums or chatrooms.

    I find adults pretending to be little kids particularly creepy.

    If you're just deciding now, you're too late! You should have started MCAT prep years ago! Have you even been published?

    You're probably going to have trouble even getting into the Carib. Maybe try some PA programs.

    Sorry dude, it's just too competitive.

    what's your GPA? do you always dress out in gym class or forget your shorts sometimes? do you stay after to clean the chalk board for the teacher?

    I call troll: new account, starts thread with a high-flame factor. Besides, if he/she is truly 9, we adults can get in big trouble talking to people under 18 years of age.

    For some reason the movie Kindergarten Cop popped into my head when you said this. When the woman finally isn't sick and goes to class and starts teaching and it's "never talk to strangers" day and that one kid says "what about kids can we talk to kids? can we talk to dogs?"

    anyways...that is my random contribution

    Start volunteering in the emergency department now. If you do, you'll have 15,000+ hours by the time you apply, and that will mean you're extra phony. ADCOMs love phonys! :thumbup:

    I'm pretty sure premed machine reproduces asexually, more efficient, thus more time to study. That would make him a clone.

    Have you concocted and administered your own shots/vaccinations? If not, then I would suggest you start....that covers your research portion of the EC. And you can jot down your results on a magna-doodle and have it published.

    Start eating lead paint chips. They're very nutritious.

    errrrr.... if the OP is in fact a university student, I'm confused as to why on earth he/she would want us to explain going in to medicine as if talking to a 9 year old??? :confused: If you're that clueless, this is not the place to say so and expect serious responses... :rolleyes: and posting history is too easy to look up to fool us! :p

    Make sure you get contacts if you wear glasses before you hit the 6th grade, or else you'll be shunned as a geek until you hit college!

    You're too young to start worrying about that stuff now. Just focus on the hot pre-pubescent b*tches until you're ten. Then, start memorizing First Aid.

    ask vaguely leading questions during exams when you can't "understand" a question. If your professor isn't cagey or suspicous, hell probably tell you exactly what you need to answer the question.

    Stay in school until you learn to capitalize your "I"s you use and despite what cooties might make you think, chicks are NOT the devil.

    In NZ, it's a 6-7 year mbchb degree right out of high school. It seems implausible that he's in auck univ and not gone to med school yet. second, he's 9, and in university.

    I think SDN'ers don't like another premed machine, this time torturing them for the next 12 years.
