For the gunners among us, there’s no place like the Student Doctor Network (SDN). Hands down, SDN offers more information for pre-meds on more topics than any other site on the web. For that reason, we recommend that you visit SDN throughout your pre-med years, and visit often.
However, if you’re not comfortable posting questions for hundreds of users to read and respond to, or if you’re looking for a prompt and personalized response, SDN may not be your best bet. That is, SDN’s vast archive of threads and posts may be helpful, but it can make searching for simple answers to simple questions feel like looking for a needle in a haystack–and a needle you’re not even sure exists. Often times, the titles of posts on SDN don’t reflect the content of the questions asked, and you might have to sift through dozens of pages of irrelevant, disrespectful, or even inaccurate comments before you find what you’re looking for.
That’s where Pre-Med FAQ comes in. We’ve taken the SDN question-answer model and made it more user-friendly and accessible, by phrasing the questions ourselves, answering them directly, and taking the time to sift through and summarize what’s on SDN for you. Because we want future posts to meet your needs, we’ve included a “Submit a Question” feature, where any registered user can ask a question and, within 24 hours of asking, expect a personalized, sensitive, and thoughtful response from a real, live human being.
In short, we’re trying to streamline and simplify your life, O thou ambitious pre-med. We think you should be spending your precious time preparing for medical school instead of worrying about how you’re supposed to go about it.
Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions. We’d appreciate them greatly. And thanks for stopping in!
