        Anyone who has ever planned a sleeping-baby-from-carseat extraction knows that isn't true - one has to plot out all the steps beforehand, so as to minimize the screaming. Or maybe you just let your neighbors suffer :D. And please don't tell me that it was your dad who managed to cram five suitcases' worth of stuff in three duffles and a carryon on the family vacations. ;)

            lunguv howcome you got rejected from temple with those stats? Im just started my pre-reqs and I think im might have similar stats in the end to yours and I want to go to temple. I have seen a lot of people get in with those stats though.... Did u ever find out why they rejected you?

            I honestly think it has something to do with the fact that I applied so late. I imagine Temple is rolling admission, so there were probably very few spots by the time they looked at my application (sometime in late november). This is the reason I got rejected from Penn without an interview, I was told If I would have applied earlier I would atleast have gotten an interview. I suggest you send your app in may/june. I sent mine the beggginging of september.

              I have an interview soon in Feb, and it seemed liked there were a lot a lot a lot of people accepted by Columbia already, which makes me nervous, at the same time confused why they had offered so many spots away.

                  You may be hot and sexy, but you are also very annoying. What do you want anyone to say? "Dont worry, you'll get in"??? How the hell are they gonna know that? Only the Columbia adcom knows your fate, not any SDN member. Just do something to relax and stop being a spaz.

                    If it helps any, I think I'm sending in my rejection letter on Monday - maybe you can call them and say that you'll be taking my place, instead. ;)

                    When was your interview? Have you heard anything from them?

                      Yeah, like I'm the annoying one. I've actually read a lil about your history and your particular "interest" in criticizing Columbia, Dr, I think truely you are the annoying one on SDN, and most people would agree with that. :mad:

                        Hmmm, with a self-proclaimed nickname like "hot and sexy" and spazzing about getting into Columbia for life or death, Im gonna take a wild stab in the dark and assume that you are simply a superficial, shallow princess bitch that is only dying to get into Columbia because of its name. You can say Im wrong, but I know Im right.

                          Whatever you say, I'm gonna end any further discussion with you because I know you don't have the intelligence to notice how annoying you are. In fact you are the superficial shallow one, who likes to argue and screw up the threads. I think, we are going to have to call you Dr.MadVibes, simply another loser jealous of others.

                          Wow...that is hilarious ;). Why do you want to go to columbia so bad? I don't see whats so good about them personally. I know I only applied to see if I could get in, I never wanted to actually go there. That place sounds cut throat competitive...not my kind of style ;).

                            You dont need to be so hard on Dr. BadVibes. He does have a point, really you can really trust us SDNers so much. There really isnt much more for us to say than your scores are kick ass and your GPA is impressive. However, what kind of name is hot and sexy? If you really dont want people to go off topic you wouldnt pick such a username. Your gonna get so many ignorant comments about guys asking if you are hot and sexy.
                            BTW, lets not resort to name calling? Dr. Madvibes...wtf?

                                I just picked up 2 jars of Skippy smooth for a buck a jar. It was an easy choice.

                                  well I guess if its on sale, it helps the choice....but if its not on sale theres smooth, crunchy, low fat, snickers, smores, etc. I might be alone on this, but I have a hard time choosing myself.


                                  The smooth was for the wife, I'm a cruchy man myself. Just don't give me any of that organic crap, too oily and not enough taste.

                                    You would get along with her great than. It has to be pulp free for her. Personally I love pulp, the more the better. As a matter of fact, you can keep the juice. What thread was this again??

                                      I agree with what DrBadvibes said earlier in this meaningless thread. Hotandsexy needs to chill. If you're freaking out with stats like that then you're just going to make other people start to freak out and that's not cool.

                                      Another vote for pulp :)

                                        trans fats are positively correlated to athrosclerosis [why? b/c they act like sat fats and may be oxidized like unsat fats-- eg oxidize LDL's -(lead to)-> CVD]
                                        btw, you can pour out the extra oil

                                        dr.badvibes is a dental student and is more knowledgeable than other statements where the author is not as accomplished. i interviewed at columbia, the facilities are aweful, the school is friendly, yet, due to the undisputable fact that columbia univ school of physician and surgeons is so excellent (facilities and all) and that its students share classes with dental students, i would not be surprised if dental students feel neglected by basic science instructors, which by speaking with numerous students i feel they did. i do not like dr. mcmanus, but he and his staff, especially dr. davis, are all friendly and place max effort to portray their school as a laid back atmosphere. however, be careful of the statistics, such as 100% of one of the recent graduating classes getting into specialty because as dr.badvibes has previously pointed out military, aegd, and gpr sould not count in those figures because to us pre-dents specialty seems like ortho, endo, pedo, etc etc. with that said, columbia is a dental school, thus, an excellent place to become a dentist. as they specifically stated in the interview, they do not place great emphasis on gpa, however, the adcoms there view the dat as the great equalizer. therefore, to ensure a position at columbia you will need to score very well on the dat. at that point, you will be granted an interview to many schools and realize that what dr.badvibes is trying to say is there are other excellent schools and that the name of a school should not influence your decision making, if possible. dental schools are not ranked, no other dentist or dental specialty will care you went to columbia:

                                        PS-don't count on an Ivy League dental education doing much for you in the way of opening doors to OMS
                                        Amen to that. I didn't know there were any "ivy league" dental schools. The boards are the "great equalizer" to compare people across schools.
                                        - this was followed by the columbia student defending columbia's record of scoring well on national board pt 1, hence, the great emphasis they place on your standardized test taking skills (aka dat) during admissions. ultimately, schools such as UCLA, UCSF, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and other state institutions are much much more challenging to secure a position at; maybe you could fool your patients, friends, and spouse, but you can't fool yourself.

                                          I know that it may be healthier but for the amount of peanut butter that I eat I think I can splurge on the artery clogging yumminess. Now ice cream is another strory. That **** is going to kill me some day. Lets all vote for Mint Chip :D :D :D :D

                                            how can you compare the benefits yielded by plant oils versus partially hydrogenated vegetable oil? if you eat peanut butter regularly, i would highly suggest moving to the natural, non trans-fat product. the "organic" (aka non technologically altered) product will provide you alot of excellent nutrients, i would not be surprised if it is a great source of omega-6 fatty acid. regardless, the natural peanut butter will be rich in monounsaturated fats and nutrient rich. the only downside to the natural product is rancidity, in other words, the product will spoil sooner than the partially hydrogenated oil counterpart, which is the only reason that stuff was created in the first place. ice cream is completely different because the source of fat is animal, hence, it will be full of saturated fat; (also) be careful of "fat-free" because they'll substitute sugar for fat and make you more high risk for type II diabetes, all for the same amount of Calories.

                                              When I say "the amount that I eat" I mean the PB&J once every month or two. Believe me the amount of steak and cheese I like to consume will put me more at risk than the kind of peanut butter that I eat but I do agree with you that the processed crap that I think tastes good is far from healthy. I also agree that another nurtrition class would be very beneficial for me, especially when I am trying to figure out something for my kids to eat. Thank you for the information, I do appreciate it.
