i think it's great that all you dental students are here, helping potential dental students out & easing their visit @ their prospective universities.

i hope i can pay it forward someday...if/when i get in :oops:

p.s. i spend waaaay too much time on SDN when i should be studying :eek:

I met a handful of folks who interviewed at IUSD last year, and a few more are in this year's D1 class.

Met couple at my first interview, and will probably meet more on my upcoming interviews too.

I met a fellow SDNer at an interview. Lets just say I was totally caught of guard. This person did not turn out to be the person I thought they would be. Just goes to show you how SDN is totally anonymous. YOU KNOW YOU ARE!

Hmm, well, unlike hockeydentist, I can honestly say I've been pleasantly surprised with all of the SDN-ers I've met at interviews. Then again, I don't go into the interview expecting much; I usually picture some hunch-back, 4'10'', 510 lb, neurotic computer nerd when I respond to people on SDN. Well, no, that's a bit extreme. But you get my point. You're all so darn pretty. :O)

Yes, I do clean up a bit before crawling out to an interview. :laugh:

I have met several SDN'ers at interviews and it is rather nice to have a sort of connection to someone else in an otherwise strange crowd.

when ppl respond to me, i generally wanna kinda know what (guy or girl) i'm talkin to...not like it makes a big diff, but when i click STATS, they don't have anything there..so i made an effort to put my basic stats..
my birthday is there too..so everyone can say happy bday to me.lol.
and buy me virtual drinks..i'll be 21 in feb.hahaha. thank god i'm in canada for undergrad..otherwise i wouldn't have been 'allowed' to drink until my 4th yr! :eek: since i would NEVER do anything illegal - i.e. using a fake id, since i'm an angel ......LOL..ya right! :luck:

One time I had a patient at a homeless clinic who looked like a "She," talked like a "She" and acted like a "She" but was really a "He." It blew me away. Sometimes its not fair how beautiful men can be as women.

Anyways, I digressed, many apologies...

I have met several people for SDN, mostly after the fact I figured it out. (Since I got on here after 2 of my interviews.) It has been nice to know a familar "face". :laugh:

that hippo is hysterical! where did you find it? :laugh:

anyway, when you all are at your interviews, how do you know when you've met a fellow SDNer? do you just happen to get into a conversation about this website?

"So, baby....you're cute. Ever cruise the SDN site? No? What about StarTrek.net ?"

Works for me.

Usually someone brings SDN up, and of course most people that have a pulse have at least heard of it or browsed the forums. This then leads to "do you post? - I'm so and so." While at USC I met a fellow SDNer because I remember reading their profile and I knew their name (and vice versa). At the end of the interview we were both "Hey, aren't you?!!!" At least that is how SDN and members come up at interviews for me.

For those of you who are not cultured enough...that dictionary really does exist. Um...well...that's what I heard.

I actually think its an advantage on interviews, to be an "SDN'er" and to somewhat know another person or two there. Theres always that awkward moment where everybody's lookin around the room, and I think it if adcom people see you mingling well and chatting with others, it helps (a little) bit in making a favorable impression of yourself. Its not a huge deal, but sometimes every little bit helps, right?
