    No shiit, Sherlock.

    Funny anecdotes of pre-med and application experiences are welcome throughout this entire yearlong shiitshow. Bring it.

    <<In whiny Jerry Seinfeld voice>> I mean, what's the deal with AMCAS?

      Response #1:
      Seriously, I mean, I give 'em a check for $900 and two weeks later, I've got their phone number on speed-dial and I'm callin' them every 3 hours with girl problems. Hell, even 10-10-220 is cheaper than this shiit.

        Before taking the MCAT, a student was hugging her Kaplan science book in a way that made it seem as if it were a baby! Also, people were studying during the lunch break. Talk about neurotic ... I mean fantastic!

            You know what? I was looking at my bio notes at lunch, to re-focus myself into taking the test. At lunch I just wanted to go HOME!

            I got some dirty looks from the undergrads (at 24, wearing wedding rings I was a little out of place on the undergrad campus where I took my MCATs) but did it anyway. Whatevs.

              how about premed cynicism? You'll know what i mean if you go ahead and read a book called "the year of the intern" by robin cook

              certainly kicked alot of my premed idealisms out the door.

                  Guys. I don't appreciate this thread. I mean, applying to med school is hard work. It's such a crapshoot: I just got back from building a new hospital in Malasia, and I'm looking back over my AMCAS that I submitted at 12:01AM on June 5, and my 3.989 is just staring at me, mockingly. Oh, and I don't even wanna talk about that comma splice in my 14th activity description- I've already withdrawn my application from 3 schools. And then I come on SDN to look for support and people I can really relate to, and I find this thread... Just because I named my Kaplan book Pooky, doesn't give you the right to judge. Pooky's been good to me.

                    Wedding rings would've been far less unsettling. A woman sitting next to me during the MCAT was wearing this crazy bracelet that I think had to have been made out of a real snake (with the head of the snake on top of the bracelet much where the face of a watch would be). It probably protruded four inches up from her wrist. It struck me as kind of witch doctor-esque.

                    On a different topic, both The Mars Volta and Cursive are releasing new albums in August. You should all check them out.
