He only got one B in med school.
This is an amazing story. But more importantly, his efforts and persistence are very respectable
How do you only get 1 B in medical school, but only be top 1/6 of the class though? I wonder how many straight A students there were!
I bet he was higher than top 1/6...maybe they just put 1/6 because i think thats what alot of school use for induction into AOA.
is he 100% blind or just legally/partially blind like the governor of NY? i don't understand how he can "observe" surgeries if he's completely blind.
He has a condition that gradually leads to blindness. Needed glasses by the age of two or four, and qualified for a cane at 16, I think.
I believe they said he graduated sixth in his class. So, he was probably 6/100+. That means that, if everyone above him had A's (which may/may not be the case) no more than 5 people could have had straight A's.
i wonder how he took the mcats. and better yet, how did he do on them?
It doesn't matter. He got into medical school. Like all applications, when you get what you're applying for the past no longer matters.
blueleaf is a cool name

And if you're tempted to post an article about Sho Yano, don't.
Reason I'm going to hell:
Something about this stood out...
"An academic whiz, he graduated as valedictorian at the University of Notre Dame as a crowd of 10,000 gave him a standing ovation."
That is really cool though. I'm surprised I haven't heard about that considering I've been living in Madison for years.
Why is that bolded?
He's blind; not paralyzed.
because he wouldn't be able to tell that they are standing
Great story, but would you really want a blind man intubating you or assisting in your surgery? Eek. He'll probably make a great psych.
i hope you aren't gonna be my doctor...
he was just pointing out what the earlier poster meant. SDN is strung way too tight.
