Get It Out Of Your System!
Get It Out Of Your System!
You've really got to be joking. If you're not you're a moron, because many of the schools you're applying too are OOS schools that accept a very low number of OOSers and even some OOS schools that have high MCAT/GPAs.MasterMD said:
I mean, like i've said before...MasterMD said:
because chinese restaurants can be started with 3000 dollars.dr_90210 said:with a 32 mcat, 3.5 gpa, and being asian, you shoulda used the money you used to start up your own chinese resturante
Let me start a thread so everyone can talk about me! I am soooo important. What a sad cry for attention.MasterMD said:
As long as you make smart choices in which schools you will apply too I think it is ok to apply to 30 or so schools. It is just stupid to apply to 90 schools, and 30 or more of them probably will not even consider the OP because they are OOS public schools.Zoom-Zoom said:If there were more schools, he would have applied to those too.
p.s. I'm planning to apply after I graduate and I'm considering applying to almost that many schools since I'll have time for the secondaries. When I say almost I mean like half, which is still a lot.
born and spent much of my life in IL.. family in IL.. etc etc..jackieMD2007 said:Did you already submit all of those on your primary? What was the bill?
EDIT: Also, hun, I don't know about other states, but for IL---both Rush Medical College and UIC have heavy in-state preference. Also, Rush's secondary was a beeeeeyotch!
Good to you though. I wish I had the $$ to apply to all of those places. I am finding that 19 applications might be too many, as it is...we will see.
Good luck!!! I am applying to a lot of schools as well-in the 40s so I am used to the criticism as well, but if you can handle it go for it. I am about half way done and lovin it lol.MasterMD said:born and spent much of my life in IL.. family in IL.. etc etc..

Just some advice to you, keep a set amount of time per day for secondaries so you are top of everything and create a spread sheet so you are organized about lors etc. One day at a time, but good luck!!!
Actually, living in California is awesome, which is one of the reasons its so hard to stay in CA for medical school. Nobody wants to leave.iceman77_7 said:Amen to that! It sucks to live in CA.
No need to take the comments so seriously. Most of them are lighthearted anyway. With that said, I recommend you filter out secondaries as you go based on new information.MasterMD said:done thanks..
good luck to you too!!
i think im gonna quit posting for awhile.. i think i was very sheltered and a bit naive to believe that people were not this rude in real life... there are nice ways to say things and there are rude ways, and ive gotten quite sick of the rudeness on this board, ie the "good job being stupid" rather than "just to help you out, here's the info on this..." not just in this thread because it was expected here but in general.
im sure ive been more disappointed with humanity in general before but this is supposed to be a pre-professional board. i'm just a little stunned that these types of people will be my colleagues one day.
