    Don't listen to Thingamajig, she may have cut back on her forum checking but she is still a chataholic. I reccomend trying my 2 step program to SDN rehabilitation.

    Step 1, send me a check or money order for 200$

    Step 2, send me your CPU

    Yeah it wears off, but then you get broadband internet connection. You're posting frequency doubles! Man it's like a cocaine addict let loose in the fields of Columbia!

    I'm also addicted to this place, and I just found out about it... three days ago. In fact, I'm beyond addicted. I'm to the point where I'm reading and writing posts here instead of filling out secondaries! D'oh! :oops:

    it's most addictive when you are applying b/c you are constantly checking on what people have to say about your schools of interest.

    After the application process, the addiction is much less and the only incentive to come back your buddies of SDN :)

    Unfortunately, I really didn't start using SDN until after my application "experience". For me, it helps alleviate the nervousness before matriculation to med school in about two weeks. :cool:

    once every couple of minutes? damn it you guys you're more exciting than that aren't you? wow, i thought my once a day habit was bad.
     
  20. i think taping looks better. just curious, is anyone submitting extra photos of themselves? i think some applications allow this.

    Put the tape over or under the writing. It's probably just a safety measure so in case the photo falls off, they can reattach it to your app.

    This website TOTALLY takes away my time from my application and my sleep... It's so darn addictive!!!

    Maybe it's because I don't know a lot of premeds otherwise... It's nice to see what's going on, you know?

    God, it was terrible when SDN was down for so long -- was it all day yesterday? It seemed like it. I got so much done, but it was an altogether terrible day! :oops:
