Hello Everyone, I am sort of new here to the forums. But yesterday was a nightmare that created a HUGE PROBLEM. It started when for the first time I went to my JERK OF A PRE-MED advisor, who without a word told me to take a hike and apply to post-bacc only. I am applying this summer after taking the August MCATs. He is notorious for hating his job and always discouraging people from applying. I was so distraught and furious that now I want NO committee letter from the jerk and want to fly SOLO- and show him that I can and will go to a medical school! So my question is that can I fly solo? What do medical schools think of students who ignore the Pre-med office? Who basically take care of the Rec Letters, so can I just send the letters through my career center directly to the schools? Any advice and tips on how the Pre-med office can impact my application. Moreover, for people wondering how bad I am, well I have a GPA above 3.8 and some decent volunteer works abroad- plus I am people's person. The only thing wrong is that I have a few W's and a drop semester for I was sick. Also, it is just that I dont put up with bossy people because I am not a pushover- as you can see I could not sleep well last night!!! Thanks everyone!!! And wow what a start to interacting with you guys- sorry to start on a negative.
