    10. Your homepage is set directly to this board.
    9. While you "study" next to your computer, you check SDN every five minutes for possible updates.
    8. Your only real social interaction during the day takes place on this board.
    7. When the SDN website is slow, you curse the computer gods.
    6. You have more than 100 posts. Any fewer, you're just a dabbler.
    5. "Work? School? Eat? Sleep? I spit on them!! There are more important things at stake!!! I must check for updates here."
    4. You actually vote on all the polls, no matter how ridiculous some of them might be.
    3. You know who the regulars are (brandonite, Watcha, Scooby, SMW, Jessica, A. Caveman, etc.) and, of course, who the trolls are (MacGyver, bustahimes).
    2. You can instantly spot a "transfer" from the Princeton Review board.

    And the number one sign you're ADDICTED to SDN is...
    1. You come up with stupid posts like mine to kill time.

    Oh, wow. I actually recognize most of those... :)

    And I have 1500 posts, and I'm not a regular? :) Foxy, I think you and I should be insulted!

    Seriously, funny stuff... :p
     
  4. well, i know who all the regulars are for sure.. you guys are like real friends to me (yes, i am corny and that was a weird thing to say--i'm a freak--done).

    i also try to "protect" this site from the newbies who i suspect may be McGuyvers in the making.

    i also know i've been on here for 3 hours straight just reading, when i originally intended to be here 15 minutes. i'm addicted, and i'm too weak to stop. ****!!

If we tried to make a list of the regulars, we'd be here forever... :) But thanks for the thought!

    You needed to have more resiliance there! See, now others will see how easy it was, and you'll be here for weeks adding names... <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    11. You start flirting with some of the other members on SDN.

    Uhmmm...I won't mention who I'm talking about, but I remember seeing a post turn into a lovefest between a certain regular and a female member. :cool:

    I think if we had a med school class of all the regulars here on SDN we'd be a pretty fun bunch of people. Unlike those stiffs at many schools. Ha ha. Could you imagine that?

    14. You eat meals while reading/posting on SDN.

    15. You wait for a lull in posting before going to the bathroom.

    Here's another: You have responses from all of the schools to which you applied, yet you still frequent the site.

    I thought I would stop when all this garbage was finished. SDN is a great support system during the trying times applying provides. Now what's my excuse? <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Hopefully I will seriously cut back on SDN when med school starts. I can see it having a negative effect. Lamyers will have to teach me her restraint. :p

    valley- that ain't bad. If there is any reasonable purpose for SDN, it's med school advice.

    19. You get relationship advice from an SDNer (you know who you are)

    20. You talk about SDN with fellow pre-meds who later join.

    20. You talk about SDN with fellow interviewers and get them to join.

    21. You talk about SDN with people that have NO interest in med school that join. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    22. The first thing you want to do when you hear from a school is to let your SDN friends know! :)

    Wow. I need some kind of 10 step program... I think I can relate to almost every single thing said so far!

    But I think I'm reasonably happy with this addition. I mean, is it really all that bad? Maybe I'm in denial... :)

    Hey Avi, I actually know you in person (though you cannot reveal my true identity!) and I remember telling you about SDN. I feel guilty that you are fast becoming addicted. This thing is contagious.

    26. You know exactly how many posts it takes to become a Senior Member and Grand Member. I wish there were more titles in between, because going from 50 to 2000 posts is some work...

    You recognize the SDN poster by his/her signature.

    You know the gender of posters with ambiguous screen names like SMW, praying4MD, and Dr. Kermit.

    You cultivate friendships with SDNers first through SDN, and eventually, AIM.

    You live in perpetual fear of threads like this one getting moved to the Lounge by Jamier2.

    You post in the Lounge.

    You notice when certain people haven't posted in a while (Scooby, SWO, choker, Dr. Kermit, etc.)

    (Not that I fit any of these... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> )

    Adding 32-37.

    37. You add a post about 36.
    36. You have Doctora Foxy's homepage on your browser's Favorites menu.
    35. You get annoyed when your thread has less than 10 posts on it.
    34. You've gotten upset by Caveman's posts in the past, but have finally gotten inured to them.
    33. You worry when regulars haven't posted for more than a day.
    32. You keep searching for new graemlins to add. <img src="http://www.mins.net/ubb/graemlins/sunflower.gif" alt="" />
    31. "Medschool Booyah"... need I say more?
    30. You know exactly how many posts it takes to become a Senior Member and Grand Member. I wish there were more titles in between, because going from 50 to 2000 posts is some work...
    29. You do not go by # of posts. You go by # of posts per minute.
    28. It's 11:30, you have an exam tomorrow at 8am and you're reading this.
    27. If your friends see you looking at other websites, they ask you "is SDN under construction?"
    26. People remember your name even though you don't post with it anymore.
    25. You get relationship advice from an SDNer (you know who you are)
    24. You talk about SDN with fellow pre-meds who later join.
    23. You talk about SDN with fellow interviewers and get them to join.
    22. You talk about SDN with people that have NO interest in med school that join.
    21. The first thing you want to do when you hear from a school is to let your SDN friends know!
    20. Keep checking this thread for any updates.
    19. You refuse to make any med school decisions unless validated by another SDN member.
    18. You eat meals while reading/posting on SDN.
    17. You wait for a lull in posting before going to the bathroom.
    16. You post from a med school admissions office!
    15. you try to quit over and over again, but The Habit is just too strong, and you end up online checking new posts, hoping that this next time you click reload, there will be a new post on a thread you're keeping up with...soon you're back on the streets, broke and diseased....
    14. When the same people are constantly simultaneously posting.
    13. You start flirting with some of the other members on SDN.
    12. You get pissed when you think you're a regular and are left out of "regular" lists.
    11. The reload button on your browser is worn out from constantly checking to see if anybody new messages have been posted.
    10. Your homepage is set directly to this board.
    9. While you "study" next to your computer, you check SDN every five minutes for possible updates.
    8. Your only real social interaction during the day takes place on this board.
    7. When the SDN website is slow, you curse the computer gods.
    6. You have more than 100 posts. Any fewer, you're just a dabbler.
    5. "Work? School? Eat? Sleep? I spit on them!! There are more important things at stake!!! I must check for updates here."
    4. You actually vote on all the polls, no matter how ridiculous some of them might be.
    3. You know who the regulars are (brandonite, Watcha, Scooby, SMW, Jessica, A. Caveman, etc.) and, of course, who the trolls are (MacGyver, bustahimes).
    2. You can instantly spot a "transfer" from the Princeton Review board.

    And the number one sign you're ADDICTED to SDN is...
    1. You come up with stupid posts like mine to kill time.

    41. You still do the work for people who 40 is about.

    Newbie here, but you know what they say about addictions...it only takes one time to get hooked! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    43. You post on SDN because it makes you feel like you're DOING SOMETHING productive in the application process, when, honestly, it's only filling the time until you can check your mailbox again.
    42. You're glad your date is over so you can check SDN for new posts.

    41. You still do the work for people who 40 is about.
