What if your interview was like an episode of Fear Factor?

    Anyone who's seen the show Fear Factor....what would/wouldn't you do to get into med school? Personally, I'd do it all. That includes bobbing for plums in a tank full of snakes, being bitten by attack dogs, or eating a boiled buffalo testicle. How bad do YOU want in?

    This is hilarious!


    In a lot of ways, this entire application process is like a show, depicting the great lengths we (as applicants) are willing to go to get in. For example, the MCATs, zillions of volunteer work, all-nighters for exams to push that GPA up and up, spend thousands upon thousands of dollars for application, hotels, travel, etc.

    I think collectively, we really have some kind of obsessive disorder. :)

    Oh my God-----we're on survivor! Whoever gets in should win a million dollars. <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    I think the only thing i wouldn't do is eat the calf brains. Did you see that episode? (Watched it right after eatting dinner.) It was absoutely horrifying to watch them chew! But at this point this admissions process seems just as competitive!
