    You bumped this thing after a whole 15 min?? Come on, enough of these already. How many different brag-about-your-interviews-and-acceptances threads do we need?

      There is no real boasting since we don't know who clicked what.

      I'm actually curious about this one. I'm guessing its going to be bimodal. I dont know why, but I have the impression that SDN has very uber successful applicants and very uber unsuccessful applicants.

        It fell to the bottom of the page very quickly, just bumped it up once - sheesh! :)

        This isn't a bragfest - SDNrs in the other post kept saying that pure numbers weren't helpful, that they wanted a percentage - hence the inspiration for this :) Plus, this says nothing of acceptances...

        Seems to be a bit bimodal already... hm....

          Although this is an improvement, we really need some kind of formula that incorporates everything from pre-secondary screening to interviews to waitlists to acceptances. That would truly give a picture of how "well" applicants were doing.

          I'll now wait about 15 minutes for that poll to pop up. :D

              Holy smokes! I never make mistakes like that! Sheesh! Good catch, Dopa!

              Sheepishly changing the title....

              EDIT: Darnit - look above - I managed to edit it in one title but not the other! How's that even possible!? Haha... oh well... sorry, guys

              I know you're not the grammar mistake type, so I almost had to. Sorry. :laugh:

                This is a horrible poll. How do I know that people don't just apply to one safety school and get an interview, and have a fantastic 100% rate? How can I skew the numbers to make myself with my lowly rate look better? I'm going to start talking about inadequacies of this thread until I feel better about myself. Waaah.

                  Definitely bimodal already. I would agree about your predictions on SDN though. There's the large number of "I don't have any interviews, waaah" threads, and then there are the people who remain more quiet about their records who you then are impressed by their mdapplicants page (I'm looking in yor direction Stolen).

                  Mostly what this survey predicts, though, is that some people are better than others in deciding where to apply. Still an interesting statistic unto itself. (Although, I find most statistics interesting. It's just important to understand what they do and do not tell you- I'm not going to say whose direction I'm looking in now).
