I need to go medical school STAT just so I can use that picture
Well I don’t see why this (obviously cool and super-elite) group couldn’t be called the TOADS: “Tumblr Organization of Anonymous Doctors (and also medical) Students”? Just need a better picture for the concept. *crappy photoshop powers ACTIVATE*
If that category applies to your Tumblr, congratulations: You’re a TOAD. :) Heck, it could even apply to pre-med blogs — I’m not picky.
Now we just need to get this TAG going!
This is a good write up for all those people out there asking about the “numbers game.” It outlines some critical things to consider when applying to medical school. Here is the intro:
“Every year medical school applicants feel confused and in the dark about why they have been rejected by medical schools. They do not understand what they did wrong or what they need to do differently when they reapply. Whether you are a premedical student trying to make sure to “do everything right” or a medical school applicant who has not yet been accepted to medical school, it may help to learn what applicants who are not accepted to medical school often have in common. Many of these problems are easy to avoid while others take a little more time and effort to remedy.”
It would be interesting/nice to see the academic profiles of those who were unable to matriculate into a medical school. Just a thought.
I personally have the worry of not having stellar grades (My GPAs are above 3.0) but with a large amount of clinical experience, so I’m hoping that it will balance out my application, but time will tell.
