Hey, where's all the student-athletes? What sport/position did you play?

Myself: Football, corner, 3 seasons (and tried to be a kicker, but that didn't work out)

Also, do you think dental schools like student athletes or not? In my experience they seem to like to talk about it.

Rugby. I served as team captain at one school, and played inside/outside center, flanker, and "8" man. I now do sprint triathalons in hopes of working up to the real deal some day.

Intramural flag football champs ASU three years and national runners up last year. I hope to get a championship next year at UNLV so I hope there are plenty of flag football hopefuls there now!

Varsity volleyball my freshman year and decided to stop after that because our program was a joke and I'd rather focus on doing well in my classes so I can progress to Dental School. College sports are insanely time consuming!

Played NCAA Division 1 basketball (point guard/shooting guard) for 2 years and ran track (long jumper) for 1 year. Retired after my 2nd year so I could finish my degree in 4 years and start dental school in '07!!!

I think professional schools like to see student-athletes who have done well in their classes. At all 4 of my interviews, being a college athlete was brought up in some form or fashion... time management, organization, teamwork, etc.

How do you blow out your knee playing water polo?:confused: :confused: :confused:

I blew out my knee after my first year playing water polo, that winter when I was snowboarding. Went up to hit a rail, but caught my board and twisted my knee and pop went my ACL.

UCSB H2O Polo!


I did do IM Flag Football, Soccer, and Ice Hockey after the blew out my knee.

I was a dog musher. Seriously.

But I don't consider it a sport, because the dogs do most of the work.

Looks like quite a few of us are from the Bay Area and all going to Dental School. I am from Santa Rosa. As of right now it looks like I am going to Temple. Still waiting to hear from Colorado.

I almost swam for Purdue, but realized the commitment would interfere with my naps and weekend phenomena. After state in high school, I somehow knew it would be my last race.

Wow...it certainly feels like I'm a high schooler applying to undergrad college... didn't realize that even in college, playing sports again would help out with admissions to grad school...:p
