I assume OHSU doesn't have the same type of thing as UW where they let in Alaska kids because Alaska has no med schools...Originally posted by SMW
No, it's not true. I am an Alaska resident and got invited for an interview last year.
oh, that's just cuz I did NOT like their secondary. Plus I made a few typing mistakes and I simply don't feel like sending that one in. Call me vain. Plus it's on the opposite side of the country! Too far from home.Originally posted by isidella
Why is vermont "yikes?"
Get some white-out, fix it, and send it in if it's more-or-less finished, Tweetie!! Vermont is an awesome school (it was at the top of my list when I first started interviewing, they eventually waitlisted me), northern states in general are awesome, and you have nothing to lose (and possibly everything to gain) by sending it in! Most med schools are on the opposite side of the country!Originally posted by Tweetie_bird

I think u should apply to UVM Tweetie - i've heard it's a pretty good school, but they aren't that concerned about numbers.Originally posted by Tweetie_bird
ya but I don't wanna do some of them. Like Vermont...or perhaps even Wright State. I think I'm just in debt and burned out.
So...Boston U. doesn't have any secondary essay - I'd go for BU. They interview a ton of people too. Remember: it's not random, it's a stochastic process.Originally posted by Tweetie_bird
Ya, right now it's a tough call between Vermont and Boston U. I am partial to Boston U because my fiance would have some work opportunities in Boston versus Vermont. And also between Jefferson and Temple (see another thread I made about Jeff and Temp).
