about UCLA? i mean i've been reading some past messages, tryin to get a feel for what this school is looking for, but i really haven't gotten anything definitive. it's been my life goal to go to UCLA... or possibly the UCLA/CalTech md/phd prgm.. but i'm just shooting for the med prgm right now. i haven't taken the MCATs yet or anything, so i don't know how i'd stack up there, but i really don't think that a chem/phys double major, math minor is what a medical school is looking for. i mean, all you guys and gals seem to have either majored in bio/psych/etc or done research in a related medical field. i'm just all sorts of physical science stuff... and that's not good. do u think i'd be better off taking a year off, establishing residency in cali and doing some medical volunteer work? ahh... i'm such a half-wit.. Sock P.S... thanks for ur help.. i'm really starting to love this board and everyone here.. yeah..
