Attention all posters with multiple acceptances to top 15 schools: you may be interested to know that under no circumstances should you post any messages pertaining to your decision about where to matriculate. As someone with significant experience working in the field of health care, I feel it is my sacred duty to educate those who wish to enter this hallowed profession as to the proper demeanor which one should exhibit. As protectors of the health and well-being of humanity, we should be sympathetic and considerate at all times. Even when making the most selfish decisions (such as where YOU will attend medical school) one should be selfless. Only when one is willing to guard one's feelings and ideas to protect the fragile egos by which one is surrounded will one truly be prepared for genuine interaction with patients. I may be getting way off base here, but we need to keep in mind that the majority of medical school applicants are NOT aware that the application process is competitive. Further, said applicants are encouraged to air their disappointments so that those of us who also dream of one day being called by that most distinguished name: Dr., can offer forth the "seeds" of wisdom and wealth of knowledge inherent in the title. However, applicants who advertise their good fortune on this site show a grave lack of understanding of the nature of medicine, as well as this truth of human nature: people don't like to hear about the good fortune and accomplishments of others. It offends them. If one cannot determine which top-tier school to attend based on the biased, limited experiences offered by short interview visits, one is probably so self-absorbed that they have forgotten that great problems exist in the world, such as poverty, hunger, unemployment, and the sobering fact that the patients said applicant will someday see sometimes face death!! If you recognize yourself in this post, its' OK: there's still time to save the profession if you heed this advice and begin the metamorphosis from a selfish, privileged rich kid (can we say "legacy") to an altruistic physician! Enroll yourself in sensitivity training, take to heart the pearls of wisdom offered by some of the sages who post on SDN, educate yourself on hardship (since said applicant has obviously never experienced any hardship, given their flippant approach to such a laughable non-dilemma), and abandon the SDN forum as a source of information. Flip a coin to make this most trivial of decisions, and sequester yourself in a room until you can begin every sentence with the phrase "I am blessed." I hope this has been instructive. You may now exit the forum and let fate decide your future. Heads for Harvard, tails for Hopkins!
