I do not mean to anger people but I am really curious about the whole URM thing. There have been so many posts on the SDN that talk about the URM,especially when pertaining to GPA and MCAT. Someone says they have low stats and everyone asks if they are URM. Or someone says "I have low gpa and low MCAt but I am a URM." Here is my problem. What does being a URM have to do with lower stats. I did see the stats from the MCAT web site (I posted about this today) and stats were so different when they were compared by race. Why is this? I feel if I were an URM I would be insulted with being accepted somewhere with lower scores then what everyone else was accepted with. Maybe I am missing something, but I feel we all work very, very hard to get to med school, so why are some people given what seems to me to be special rights when looking at their stats. I'm sure some people will take offense to my post. Those of you who have seen all my previous posts know that I do care about other people, I am not racist, I do not go out of my way to hurt or offend anyone. Any thoughts?
