This is the official (or non-official, I really don't care) thread for the people who hate the other threads, such as the "MCAT 33" thread, the "What are my chances if I have a 40 MCAT and 4.0 GPA" thread, the "Blah blah blah" thread, and so on.

Why doesn't this thread just die already? Please kill it and put it out of its misery. Die thread die!

Wow, everyone took me seriously and actually let this thread die like I said.

Guess my humor is unappreciated in its own time. Ah well. Can't win 'em all.

5. Do med schools care where you go to undergrad?
4. Hey I HAv a ? 4 all U pre-meds oot thar (and any thread with copious spelling errors and poor syntax...usually a long winded rant)
3. Feinberg or Pritzker?
2. I have a 38 MCAT and a 3.9 GPA. What are my chances?
1. Any white, male pre-meds out there? (and the related AA discussion)

i feel for the people who post about it, but a simple search can yield your answers. for example there are WAY too many threads about these topics:

1) My AMCAS isn't even verified and i'm receiving secondaries!!
2) It's been 2 weeks since my transcripts were sent and AMCAS still hasn't received them, is something wrong?

Right. We already have a thread about when people are getting verified, what the wait times are, what secondaries are out, what the questions are.

My other "favorite" is the complaining about AMCAS rules. Biochemistry is counted as Chemistry. You can find this in the HELP section. Once you submit, you can't make changes. Yes you can add schools. No you can't take away schools. Stuff you could have figured out if you read the instructions!! :)

"I have a 3.9 and great ECs and a 32 MCAT, but it's a little unbalanced- (15, 15, 2) Will that hurt me?" :laugh:

My "friend" can't decide what type of minority she is for her applications. Otherwise known as the convoluted mess that is "reaaaach school secondaries...worth the money"

For your information, I was the original "undercover gunner" in my tagline, that is, before I became Danjo's love slave. Don't want you to think you're being original. :p

Trust me, I never intended to take credit for it (though I did borrow your UCSB line amongst friends). But don't worry, you'll be the only applicant this cycle with Chuck Norris Approval on her AMCAS EC list.

Oh! Or it's close relative, "I have a 4.0 and excellent EC's and am planning on getting a 35 on the MCAT! What are my chances?!"

Dr. Durden, no biggie. Just thought I'd represent. That R I got on the writing sample is definitely for Represent. That's all.

Haha, good call Jackie. I love when people project their MCAT scores before they start studying.

Yeah, I was planning on getting a 45T....hm. Somehow that didn't work out exactly as I, um, planned. Maybe I should have gone to Harvard. Dammit. :laugh:
