    Hey, way to go! Awesome!

    Now, you get hassled with the questions! When did you interview? And what's the first letter of your last name?? :D

    Come on RicaMD2Be, we need to know if this is for real. There's got to be other SDNers who got calls if you really did. Did you apply for MD only? When was your interview? Thanks...

    She joined in July 2001. So, yes, they're all this season. :D And I'd be worried about going after SMW in any way, shape, or form. She has many loyal fans all over the place... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    Whoops, hey, just noticed this was post #1000! And I was praising SMW. Oddly appropriate, no? :D

    Hey!! :) Ok....I've calmed down a little bit...LOL

    I interviewed in November and my last name starts with a T. I had a 30Q MCAT and a 3.27 upon application (i faxed in an updated transcript last week that showed my new and improved 3.33 GPA).

    Let's see....it was a short message basically saying "congrats...see you at second look weekend and hopefully in the fall...if you have any questions..." It really sounded like they had been calling FOREVER and were just reading a script.

    Anyway....let the celebrating begin!! Spring break starts today too!! :) :)

    Love,
    Me

    BTW, does anyone else think they should add a crying instant graemlin?

    --MD candidate! I think I've posted in two other threads before this one...but I've been a SDN follower (on and off) since July.

    Love y'all!! :)

    Thanks Rica. Again, congratulations!!!

    And I think that SMW might be newly single, so you admirers might be in luck... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    RicaMD2Be: Congrats on the acceptance. I was just wondering...Did you have some kick-ass ECs that might have helped you get in?

    trout, there's lots to do in Alaska, and fortunately, I'm not working or going to school, so I get to do it all and post on SDN. Actually a lot of my posts have been from outside of Alaska.

    Dr. Corday, the great mother goddess SMW of SDN has to keep an eye out at all times to see what has spawned in the universe she created!! (Please see the Re-Revised History of SDN in the lounge, for an explanation of my exalted status. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> Seriously, everyone, if you haven't already done so, you must check out the UCLA2000's lounge thread -- it's the most hilarious post in the history of SDN (and I almost missed it, because I never go to the lounge).

    Incendiary, I'm sooooooooo sorry. It was a momentary and momentous lapse. A belated and very warm welcome! <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" />

    brandonite, gossiping about a senior member? Really, I'm suprised at you!!! But congrats anyway on your 1000 posts! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> Only 1000 more to go to grand member status!!!

    A. Caveman, the goddess is ! <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" /> :mad: <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" /> :mad: <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" />

    SMW! You almost missed it? But you're the star of it all! I'm just Foxy's kid... Talk about a nothing part. :p But you created the entire SDN universe! Talk about something to be proud of... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    yep, almost missed it. I did catch it in its very first un-revised form. I wish I'd printed it out. The evolution of the myth has been almost as entertaining as the myth itself!

    I knew you were joking, trout. hours to go till Friday night for me. I'll be driving south along the most beautiful stretch of highway in the world alongside Cook Inlet this evening to go hear a great Seattle band playing at the Alyeska ski resort town of Girdwood 45 minutes south of Anchorage. I haven't forgotten your request for Alaska info. When will you be up here? How are you travelling?

I saw lots of beluga whales swimming in a pack heading home at the end of the day. Do you realize how lucky you are to be living up there?!!
