so... any of you cats ever come across each other outside the internets?

Like... sitting next to some guy in med. school in the first few weeks you come to start arguing and it turns out you two have been trolling it up together arguing some moronic sociopolitical issue ad naseum on these boards for most of your pre-med life?

anyone meet their best friend, worst enemy, husband, wife, friend with benefits, friend without benefits, friend with sociopathic (gunner) tendencies, etc. etc.?

lets hear it

*btw referring to people as "cats" is a homage to my great football coach from out west, Hermann South. "GET ON DAT CAT NOW, GET ON DAT CAT." Just letting you know.*

I have. I didn't bring it up cause I didn't want to associate with her. During the "ask a med student" info session, all she did was ask questions about fin. aid, and topics directly related to hersekf. I think everyone else got one or two questions in. The rest of us were rolling our eyes the entire time:rolleyes:

I think you should just wear a nametag that says your handle with the SDN logo on it. Or better, a t shirt if you want to get jumped.

But seriously I want to think that I'll be friends with someone and it comes up that we were on this together.

Also I bet I would blow off some steam/free time on this even while in med school and it will come up in discussions.

All the time. I like meeting people whose posts I've read, but meeting lurkers who know who I am creeps me out a bit. This has happened in undergrad, at med school Second Look, and in med school when SDN has come up in random conversation. Usually it's fun to find other SDNers =] Some of my friends from college turned out to be SDNers (shemarty is the prime example), and some of my new friends are people I met on SDN and later in real life (ButImLETired, TupacalipseT96, and EpiPEN, to name a few). And if you read back to the old "Pre-Allo Crush Thread", you will see that I met my boyfriend there. Sketchy... but hey, he was a mod.

Yeah, I ran into Shemarty at Vanderbilt...kinda hard to miss her.
Wait...you were at Sinai on 11/21? So was I...except, I didn't recognize anyone there. I don't usually forget a face. That's odd.

SDN should just have big city meetups like in NYC DC Chicago, whatever. Twitter does it, and they are way bigger nerds and still party and talk about Twitter.

Sure, plenty. Some I knew in real life before joining SDN, plenty of upperclassmen at my school that posted in our class threads that I met in real life after posting with them online, and then a handful of people that I met when I was interviewing and vice versa.

Haha. I kind of had a feeling she'd be hot.

LET, I think I have a crush on you as well.

Lukkie, where are you? I will fight you, and you will lose.

Yea, LET's working at Stanford, Tupacalipse was at Stanford this summer, Silverlining and I are friends from college, and I met RPedigo when he was visiting Silverlining. :)

Other people have recognized me at various interviews, but they were usually lurkers.

I hate the lurker (I should disclose that I myself am a lurker on this particular forum but active on MD/PhD forum).

At one of my interview, I was making a small taking with a dude, who used to lurk on the MD/PhD forum, right before the ADCOM presentation. We were talking about where did we go for the undergrad etc..he said oh you are "Cancerkiller007" right in front of the adcoms. I so wanted to punch his face. And worst was that he did not want to reveal his identity.

I do meet plenty of nice people from SDN on MD/PhD forums. Dare I say it that I have formed a close bond with many of them as I saw many of them too often. A few of my friends are also active on SDN...so it is kinda cool!

Probably happens all the time in the insane asylum, right after they break down for getting a B+ in the dreaded 'orgo'.

I met pianola at an interview once- we sat next to each other at lunch, and I guessed who she was without her telling me

On a side note Shemarty comes up occasionally as a party topic at my school, usually in the context of "%^&* my interviews suck, Shemarty gets into all the good schools".. I let out a little chuckle everytime

Haha, I remember. That was pretty impressive! I remember when you guessed, I kind of panicked a bit because I realized how...public my life had suddenly become.

But it's ok, because gates_2 is a very nice person :) with mad guessing skills.

----
A few weeks later, I, in turn, guessed who shemarty was without her telling me (without her even seeing me, I think).

----
I work at the same place that "Food" works, but I'm not sure if he remembers who I am. We exchanged screennames at one point.

haha yeah I would even take a trip up there... i mean free food and maybe t shirts could be there.

whos with us? anyone?

its cool that you guys met up during interviews b/c thats pretty tough to have happen on its own - at some random med school in the country on a certain day. This sounds like destiny...maybe even karma.
