    Dude this forum has sparked my motivation since joining a few months ago. I've learned things I never have heard from pre-med club and school and I feel its given me a big edge. Plus the people on here are badass!!

      I wholeheartedly agree with you! I've regained my focus to try harder and be the best applicant I can be, especially when I see how hard people work and how passionate they are about medicine. I think my school's pre-med club is a joke compared to what I've learned/seen here in the discussions particularly for the admission process. And you're right, the people here are "badass"! I especially appreciate the humor, sarcasm, and rants– makes me feel a lot better about my own anxieties. :D :D :D

          I just found SDN last summer, but it has helped me so much with MCAT prep and applications. If nothing else, it feels amazing to know that you're not alone during this journey! :love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love:THANK YOU ALL!

            Hehe....I just finished reading 1984 for the first time (as a part of my resolution to read 30 books before starting the medical school).

            I too love SDN. I think there should be class for how to do SDN in college cuz let's face it....most of the pre-med advisors do not know what they are talking about. :laugh::laugh:

              SDN was one reason my interest in medicine was reignitied. I guess I have this forum to thank for putting me in med school. :p

              The information on here is amazing. Even though I went to a premed school, I think the information here is far superior for those that are not superstars in undergrad. I tried recommending this site to others who could benefit but sadly, few takers. Their loss. :(

                I have decided after joining this thread, I will not try to get into medical school, but instead try and become the DEAN of ADMISSIONS! And from there, I will accept every member of SDN because I love this place so much.

                      LOL. I am not taking the MCAT until summer, so I can only hope. But when I took the ACT some four years ago, I made a 35 in the grammar and reading sections and a 27 in science, so my dad likes to use this as one of his many arguments as to why I am "wasting my talents!"

                        lol yea! I had just started an IT job and we were at all day Microsoft conference (it was a snoozer), in the middle of a speech one of my coworkers, who would later become a good friend, passes me a note on a napkin it was the will you go steady with me question complete with boxes drawn out for me to check. When I receive the note, but before I read it, I look over at him and he bats his eyes at me. We were all stifling all the way to the next break.

                          SDN motivates me to become the best that I can be, and it helps me too with all the great advice out there. It's nice to know, too, that I'm not the only one going through all this (my close friends are all non-science majors who don't care about their GPA and haven't found clear goals in their lives yet, (which is normal for this age), but it's kind of hard to relate sometimes. okay I do have one close friend who's a med student...) :thumbup:

                            If it wasn't for SDN, I never would have even thought of doing physician shadowing (I didn't know this was encouraged or suggested.. it's completely unheard of for undergrads here), but now I've logged more than 30 awesome hours + another MD letter of recommendation.

                            Yay!
