    Is it worth dreaming of Harvard as the "ONLY PERFECT SCHOOL" where schools like JHU and Duke have awesome statistics to back them up? MEDICALSCHOOLADMISSION.COM says that "Johns Hopkins points out that over 90% of their graduates get one of their top 3 residency choices on Match Day. Duke University reports that 82% of their graduates landed one of their top 3 residency choices". So is the whole blurb about HMS worth it??

    It's worth about as much as a pissing contest.

    I'm pretty sure that this is either a troll or a complete noob, but I'll humor it a tad.

    Just about every school advertises that most of their students get one of their top 3, but you can't rank schools that you don't earn an interview at. So it's not really their top 3.

    The other thing is that there is no report of what the students at a given school want. At the osteo school in my state, for instance, the majority of them actually want to do primary care which is not a hard match.

    BTW this poll is about the lamest I've seen on SDN. There are plenty of top schools outside of these three that I'd put in the same tier.

    You need to add Hollywood Upstairs to that list. Dr. Nick Riviera went there.

    You actually can rank any program you want even if you didn't interview. No chance to match there but you can technically do it.

    The issue is that after Step I scores come out, some specialties are eliminated for some people.

    The OP could only wish to set foot in either institute nevertheless gain an acceptance into either. I love how premeds attempt to thump their chests after the 1st semester and rain parade of mental glory as they feel that it is the schools' pleasure to be able to have such an insolent, egotistical prick who still, at this point, hasn't been weaned off his mommy ... :laugh:

    okay, I understand your sentiment, but your picture is bordering on hatefulness/bigotry. (in reference the to "gay thread" picture)

    No ... this thread is actually the gayest thread I've seen in a long while. So is the poll ... no rainbow hating here ... :laugh:

    I only posted here because I saw this and busted out laughing wondering which underachieving troll is at it again ...

    There's more to life than Harvard, Hopkins, and Duke. If you get into any medical school, you're doing better than most. Try being humble and grateful every once in awhile.

    I would send in my "Clothed Pornstar" Divisions and my "G-string" Operatives but I'm at work and don't want to risk it.
