Hey everyone, I have been reading all the posts on this site, and eveyone seems so supportive......it's a pleasant change from the typical pre-med atmosphere. I have a couple of issues that I would like some input on.......first of all, I am not your typical med school hopeful. Not by far....I'm gay. I don't usually announce my sexuality like this, I don't want it to become my identity. But I can't help being exceptionally nervous as my interviews approach. (I got interviews at Einstein and Stony Brook a couple of weeks ago, and last Friday I got Rochester and UVa!! I didn't think I would get any.) I am not sure how to appraoch these kinds of issues if they are broached in an interview, and I am finding out that more and more people are being asked hot they feel about gay/lesbian issues. I realize that medicine is an age old profession, and can be very conservative. I am sure there are some that are reading this that thing homosexuals should not be doctors. I am unsure, and my interview at Rochester is October 11th. It's my first choice, and I don't want to blow it. But I feel that I should be true to myself as well. I hope I have not offended anyone, I just want to know if there are any other aspiring physicians out there that might be in the same position. Even if you are not gay, and there is a 90% chance that you aren't, I would like to know how you feel. That issue aside, I just want to thank everyone for making this site what it is. It's a great resource and I for one am thankful for it. Everone onjoy the rest of the weekend, and I hope the interview invites keep on rolling in for everyone.
