In this webinar hosted by SDN with experts from BeMo Academic Consulting, you will learn a simple five-step process to help you translate your interview invitation into an acceptance.
This has got to be one of the worst polls I have ever seen in my time on SDN...
Something tells me this is how you spend most of your Friday nights . . .
(Sorry, I know that was uncalled for. It was just too sweet of a setup to let pass by.)
You must be one of the non-UC Berkeley people
1) not asian
ahh I'm so lucky to be here.
Pyrois, you still go to Berkeley?
btw I just bought a wii so we should really all play that sometime
or just gather at raleighs or kips for drinks, or go to asian ghetto for some donut holes and boba
believe it or not I bought it at that EB games. Last tuesday I heard rumor of a shipment, so a friend and I blew off class all day and went there from opening (10AM) till we got the wii's (probably around 3:30 pm)
talk about boring having to stay in a video game store for that many hours. We tried to do some work, or play demos, but it gets kinda old quickly.
the things I do for my wii
I answered that I'm from Cal because I was born and raised in California near Berkley. However, I have to ask...what's this poll all about?
Well, to be honest, I had this weird suspicion that people from UC Berkeley comprise the majority of SDNers, simply from how frequently I hear people say they go or went to school at Cal.
Apparently I was right (currently the poll is at 15/14, berkeley/non-berkeley)
You do realize that at most times during the day/night there are 250+ people looking at the pre-allo forum. I am hoping you also realize that most people who respond to your poll will be looking at the thread title and assuming you were specifying UC berkeley students to read on.
As an estimate, I bet there are over 500 active pre-allo members (that does not mean they post every day, but they likely post at least once every 2 weeks)
I bet maybe 30 of those max come from one specific school, be it Cal, etc.
I'm well aware that this is a heavily biased poll.
As I used to run forums, 250+ people online day and night actually implies something to the order of 4000-5000 unique daily visitors. Admittedly, most forum-goers aren't as... obsessive... as pre-med students, so that number may be higher than it is on SDN. Most of these users will never post a single thread/comment in their lives (some aren't even members).
And I'm willing to bet that of the 600 pre-med students coming from Cal, 500 of them know about this site, and 300 of them visit on a regular (weekly) basis.
Those are simply my speculations, and I'm hoping this post will bring some of them out.
I realize the number of members/guests is much larger. Thats why I specified active members. Out of active members (those that continuously post at a decent rate) I bet no school has even a significant minority representation compared to the whole.
Wow your guessing 500/600 premeds at Cal know about this site? don't you think thats really high?
