What the hell do I do with my spare neuroticism now?
Search the internet for cheaper cell phone deals, cheaper auto insurance quotes, figure out the best deals for an apartment, figure out financial aid related stuff... I could think of a million annoying tasks that would appeal to a neurotic mind. Having one of those heads myself, and having decided where I'll be at for 4 years, I feel your concern ;)

seriously - pre-allo bores me more than ever now - maybe that'll change when the new cycle of interviewing starts and I can harrass people as a med student.


I spend way to much time on the internet now - I hope that bad habit doesn't follow me to school.

Yeah I'm constantly logging in and checking this out of habit, but reading it just makes me feel nervous. Maybe I should quit and stick to the lounge.

You can try to keep the "Official UCSD Class of '08" thread alive with me. You can also try to guess whether I'm white, asian, black, etc.

I honestly forgot what I was wearing that day. I was tired from waking up early so I just put on whatever was laying around and didn't pay much attention.

By the way, don't you like our potential class? It's just like UCSD undergrad--all white and asian. By the year 2020, everyone in the UC system will be half white and half asian. (I'm still not for affirmative action though.)

Playing the percentages I see. If you guess white or asian, you've probably got like a 90% chance of being correct. Don't forget the possibility of mixtures though! (Not to imply that I'm mixed) :)

:laugh: :laugh: Yeah, I have to admit that was disappointing (there were like 2 AA's and maybe a few Latino kids?) versus places like Cornell that looked like a UN meeting... but I'm OK with it. To me public schools are less about a creating a diverse utopia and more about training physicians from the state to serve the state in the future. We are going to kick ass.

Yeah. Let the private schools worry about that stuff. We're all about training the best physicians for California baby! If every doctor is named McCormick, Stevens, Wong, or Wu, so be it! :laugh:

I'm proud to say that USC has 17% URMs!!! I'm an ORM if anything but I think it's great that we have a substantial number of URM students compared to some schools. Many of these URM students have language skills that are important to communicate with a great part of the LA patient population.

UCSD has people that "speak" ASL :) We are uber-diverse I think.

:) I speak a little Latin and some Hindi as well as Japanese. I don't think I count as a URM though ;)

It exceeded my expectations. I think having an antomy dissection demonstration really livened up the day for me (along with the guy that fainted.) The future class seemed like people I could potentially get along with (that's saying a lot for a guy like me). :D I'd estimate maybe about 60 people or so were there. Maybe 55 of them were white or asian. Haha.

Who were you???????

Yeah I agree the anatomy stuff was cool although we have to wait another year to do it.... learning about the summer program and deciding to do it was the highlight. Everybody seemed really young and school focused, not much non-traditional-ness....

It is kinda discouraging. At UCLA's second look weekend, there are a solid % of Persian/Armenian, so it's a bit better...but there are really not many blacks or Hispanics
