    I GOT INTO DREXEL!!!!!!!..


    It's my first ACCEPTANCE!!!!!!!!! I'm sooo stoked, and i'm going to get sooo hammered tonight.

    I'm still in shock and in tears.......

    Couple of things..

    1. Screw verbal on the MCAT
    2. If you believe in yourself and what you want it will come
    3. Be yourself; don't try to fit some sort of pre-med mold, be passionate about anything and everything you get into. If you want to get involved with something, do it because you want to, not because someone told you to.


    Good luck to everyone else on interviews and acceptance. I'm still waiting on interviews too!!:clap: :clap: :clap:

    Congrats ucb! :clap: I'll be glad to help (as best I can since I'm still a newcomer) with any Philly questions.

    btw, I wonder if your :cool: writing sample score might have come into play for once to offset the 6?

    Hey ucb,

    Congratulations on your acceptance! I'm so proud of you and I'm happy that you've made it into drexel . . you're going to be a doctor! :clap: :D :clap:

    Right now, I think that's the most beautiful feeling in the world. I'm in my first year of med school and I *still* have those moments of complete awe when I realize, "wow, I'm going to be a doctor." It's incredible - I get butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it.


    on a side note, just curious if you were a bfc labbie in berkeley . . . ? ;)

    Congrats, just wonderful to hear that getting in med school isn't all about a multiple choice section on passages that are of no interest whatsoever.
