Anyone else notice a major discrepancy between premeds in "real life" and those on SDN? I never really noticed it until I started to hang out with premeds at my school. I was amazed about how little people seem to know about the seemingly common things like the applcation process, what courses to take, etc. There also seems to be a big difference about what constitutes an average applicant, especially in terms of EC's. Most people I know have done the usual volunteering, shadowing, research, and maybe an occasional club/service org.here and there. On here, it seems like people are worried about "average" EC's and then fire off ten different things they are involved in. Just thought it was interesting.
