    I think we need a 16+ option for CA resident and/or August mcaters. :(

    Edit: And CO residents too, apparently.

    Ahh yes, strategizing, to wow them with your grades as a Gtown SMPer, I bet. Only on SDN can I find such brilliant, machiavellian application tactics. :thumbup: :D


    Edit: "machiavellian" used as a joke (hence, the smilie), not political labeling. :laugh:

    Right...

    Actually, the SMP advisor people said to wait, not so much for grades (because Georgetown med actually waits until the end of March, so they can see what you got in Physiology, before inviting people to interview), but because they want you to have something to say about Georgetown in your secondary essay.

    That was probably more information than you cared to know, but I despite Machiavelli's political strategies, so I just wanted to be clear and separate myself from them.

    No biggie. I knew you were joking. Guess I was being lame, but I'm like that. I just really don't like Machiavelli.

    yea, sorry about that. I thought I put a 16+ option on there, but i guess not. Hopefully my chances of getting into a med school are greater than my understanding of posting internet polls :rolleyes:

    just put the highest option if you're over :)

    I'm still waiting on 11 schools. Not too worried though since I submitted some kinda late and I've got 3 interviews so far.
