Why do you want to attend this school?

B.C the noble clan of SDN said it was great... is this acceptable? has anyone done this?

No please don't do that. There will be many professors who may look down on the site and/or there may be others who simply have no clue what that is and will promptly send your app to the "meh" pile.

They want to know why you want to attend, if one of your main reasons is that someone else told you it was great then the perceived perception is that you really don't want to go there.

Interviewer: Why do you want to attend this school?

You: Because a bunch of people who I have never met and could possibly be internet trolling, world of Warcraft playing, pot heads, said this was a good school.

Lots of great info on this site but always take it with a grain of salt and search for more reliable sources when possible.

SDN = Wikipedia

Great and easy to use. But can't exactly confirm the info...

There was a dropdown option on one of my recent secondaries for "where did you hear about this school?" which explicitly offered SDN as an option.

Of course I said premedical adviser though.
I wonder if this is how adcom members who post here get commission for their sales work.

What a silly idea

That said, I'm the sort of dick that would use the drop down menu, becuz being on a drop down menu totally adds legitimacy to an answer

I view the feedback and testimonials given by current/previous students to be invaluable on this forum. I don't see why this resource is something to be ashamed of...

That fact that you don't see the shame in SDN... for shame.

I think everyone's being a little silly about all this.
