Hello all you SDNers out there. It's so nice to have a community of people who are very supportive and honest about their feelings. I have a situation for all of you to think about.... I applied to a private, U.S. medical school (M.D.) for this current year. I did a post-bacc with them because I was borderline of getting accepted last year, and I was advised to try this program. I took medical anatomy, medical neurology, and medical biochemistry this passed year. I passed all the national board subject exams and all the classes. Unfortuatenly, I received a decision last week and I was wait-listed. When my advisor told me about what happened, he said that my race (I am Asian-American) hurt my chances. My advisor said that there are too many Asian Americans at this medical school and that if I were black or Hispanic, I probably would have gotten in. I know there are more sides and spins to this story and I am leaving out other things. However, what do you guys think? What should I do?? What viable options do I have?? Thanks.
