    Hi everyone!

    Just out of curiosity, and for fun's sake, which school to which you're applying is your top choice?

    If this were a perfect world, and if I was a perfect applicant (the latter is certainly NOT true), I'd LOVE to attend Cornell. Although as it stands, if I'm accepted anywhere I'll be ecstatic.

    Any other thoughts?

    :)

    Hi.
    My realistic top choice is OSU (though some say its tougher to get into than CWRU).

    My dream would be either Michigan or Harvard, both of which I applied to, and havent heard from.....yet.

    dreams schools are a reality. my friend's dream school was UCLA and that was the only California school he eventually got in. he's still in awe of actually being a UCLA med student. he realizes he was very lucky comming from a little known state school. he was surprised to find lots of students in his class that attended the big name schools like Harvard, Princeton, Michigan, Yale, Johns Hopkins etc. the instaters have awesome applications and high stats. i would love to go to UCLA or for that matter any UC, but gaining admission is extraordinary difficult even with competitive stats. you have to be "special" and that's for the admissions people to decide if you're special or not.

    I'm kind of torn. U. of Washington, my de facto state school, would save me mucho dinero, but I'd love to go to Johns Hopkins. I could also be very happy at OHSU or Vermont.

    Yale has to be mine. The thesis is an awesome opportunity. Other than that, Harvard HST and JHU are up there as well.

    I would just like to get into any ONE of the 26 medical schools I applied to at this point. Is that too much to ask? :D

    I really don't know. Before all this application rigamarole I probably would have said Washington University, but Vanderbilt is my first interview, and if I get in there, I think I'll withdraw my app almost everywhere else. I would also be ecstatic to get into GWU, SLU, or Case.

    I think that's only one person who said HARVARD! haha..med skool fool...
    Why does everyone think that?
    Are they just trying to be more realistic in their choice or is there some hatred for harvard???
    I personally could not see myself at harvard...so it's not my top choice...but who knows...

    Through the grapevine:

    Yale advantages -- very happy students, you have to actually work hard to fail.

    Disadvantages -- you'll go stir-crazy going to class with your classmates, eating with your classmates, going out with your classmates, sleeping with.. er, in the same dorm as your classmates... the med school's located sort of a distance from campus so you don't really see a lot of the law school or other grad school students too much.
