    i should have made the thread clear. (btw, change your avatar because it's distracting me)

    For those of you who haven't been accepted to any allopathic school, what is the craziest thing you would do for just a single acceptance?

    I would get a part-time job, volunteer at a hospital, shadow different doctors, maintain a good GPA in the process, and I would also take a standardize exam covering hard science subject, as well as verbal comprehension and writing skills. I would pay for the application, and I would pay again for "secondary" applications in case the school needs to ask the same questions twice for clarification purposes. I would also be willing to travel to the school for interviews and I would even put on a suit for it.








    Oh, wait......

    My point is the application process is already crazy enough. I wouldn't do anything extreme (other than the things I already did and which I listed in my previous post)...if I had to do it in order to get in, I would tell med school to take their application and keep it to themselves, because I'm going to business school.

    I've been accepted somewhere. However, I would show up topless to the interview for a guaranteed acceptance to a California school :D

    Sorry, I was in a bad mood when I changed over from my former self. That's when the atomic explosion became my avatar. It was fitting with my name. Problems with the administration at my school.

    I think that this avatar has a much more soothing effect on readers. Sorry if it is distracting. At least it calls some attention to my posts.

    :thumbup: to the topless thing above

    I'd take 1 year gen chem, 1 year orgo, 1 year bio, and 1 year physics. Then I'd take the MCAT. Crazy, I know...

    Wait, already done with that... Thank God.

    I'd sleep with one of the Victoria's Secret supermodels. This would be a sacrifice for me because I had decided to take a break from relationpships to focus on studying. So, can you see why this would be difficult for me? I don't like to break commitments.

    I think your new avatar is still fitting with your name.

    Hey, maybe if you guys played a little harder to get we all wouldn't get treated like three-dollar whores as residents.
