    One of my co-workers and I decided to go get some Chinese food for lunch today. While we were there she was asking me a lot of questions about the whole application process and what specialty I am interested in. Anyway, just as I finished my sentence about what kind of doctor I want to be, I cracked open my fortune cookie and it said....."You could prosper in the field of medicine." Well, I took that as a sign and called my parents to tell them to be ready. Two hours later they called and told me that there was a big envelope waiting for me at home. My first acceptance! I am definitely laminating this fortune and bringing it with me when I take the boards.

      congratulations! like allmighty said, don't listen to what people have said about drexel. i don't think a single med school has gone unscathed on the sdn boards. your opinion of the school is what counts and it sounds like you'll be really happy there. :clap: :clap:

        Maybe you should learn a little bit about a person before trying to insult them. I worked three different jobs while I was in school. After I graduated I had a really hard time finding a job, and knew that I would never be able to afford my rent and bills if I were going to try to apply to Medical School. So after being on my own for 5 1/2 years, my parents graciously let me move back home so that I could afford to apply to school. I am very proud of myself and the fact that I will not only be going to school in the fall, but also maintained excellent credit and have almost no debt. So please, don't try to ruin this day for me.

            I had a similar experience, however, mine said, "Good fortune will come by mail." Not quite as specific as yours, but I took it as a good sign anyway and I was accepted shortly after.

              A very hardy congatulations to you my friend.........I have also been one of the lucky ones granted an awesome fortune by the fortune cookie gods. It said "you will soon hear good news", and shortly thereafter, I did!!!

              BUT, this weekend, I got the WEAKEST fortune EVER...it says

              "You have chosen to eat at this fine chinese restaraunt"

              THATS IT!!!! Nothing else,,,,,,what a stupid fortune. I swear, the fortune cookie gods are just trying to mess with my head. I better sacrifice a bull to them, or better yet, a kung-pao chicken :hardy:

                Hon, most people who apply to med school don't even get in. You will be in good company at Drexel. That is so awesome, way to go, and what a frickin' freaky fortune!
