The previous "STATS PAGE" was extremely succesful, so its about time we started a stats page solely for 2003 applicants! If we all update our posts as we hear back about interviews, acceptances, etc., then it'll be a great reference page. Fill in the usual information, along with anything else that will benefit 2003 applicants or future applicants. I'll start:

bizump for newbies/lurkers to post their stats, and the rest of us to update secondary/interview invite information.

I received 5 secondaries today -- let the games begin!
this is kinda of out of the topic, but does lower division science course count towards your science gpa? classes like intro to meterology, psychology, nutrition....etc?
Science courses are science courses. However, Psychology does not count for science. It doesn't matter if they are lower division or higher they still count for your science.

what about nutrition?
Nutrition is computed in the science GPA, but not in the Bio/Chem/Physics GPA (obviously).

You can download the AADSAS Instructions .pdf file from the adea website for more information on what classes are included in the various GPAs.

Just go here http://www.adea.org/AADSAS/2003Application/2003_Application_Front_Page.htm and click on "Section 4". The GPA/course information is contained within that section.
what is dsaf?

Don't bother him, Centrum. Juan has not been himself lately.

DSAF is a cuss word when people get very depressed and mad at AADSAS...let him be.

when he gets into Harvard, he will be fine.

schools are already sending out rejections! :eek:
I just updated my stats to show an interview.
I see that most of the interview invites are starting with midwestern schools....anyone hear anything from any east-coast schools? The ones I've spoke with aren't cashing checks etc until September....my committee letter is still being sent out, so I guess it'll be a few more weeks till schools get my applications :rolleyes:

Why didn't you apply to UW? Well, I guess that is OK since you will still be a Husky if you go to UCONN.
Added my Columbia Interview!!


See you at UCONN!!:clap:
I didn't apply to UW because I don't have all of their prerequisites completed (no microbiology) and, since I'm originally from New England, I thought it would be nice to be near my family while I'm in school.
