    In a world all my own.
    $5 this ends in "a URM took my spot" flamfest!


    It depends on the school an the admin committee.

    I'd add age & where people are from, in there as factors for diversity. As an example, is everyone at the school under 25 & from the midwest?

    Definately DO has more diversity. Everyone at an MD school is homogenous in the fact of being intellegent.:rolleyes:

    I think the OP just wanted to show off his very original username. That's it, I'm officially hijacking this thread. Please post the most and least original usernames and/or userpics you've seen on SDN. I nominate DKM and Q of Qumica (I'm diene -- ha!) for best pic.

    It matters because the US population is getting more diverse. Part of being a good Doctor is understanding the patient's backround.

    What the Hell is there to hide?

    Yeah but you make it sound like you're talking about the student body, not the patients you'll be seeing.

    I'd say student body will change slightly every year while patients depend entirely on the area.

    well, after my extensive experience in getting both a MD and DO degree, I'd have to say that most people on this site would have absolutely no basis of comparison..

    I'd say that Armybound has the best avatar, hands down. That's fall-on-my-ass-laughing funny.

    I realize that, but I thought it would take a few people to point it out before you got it. :D

    Just trying to help.
