They own the name Maize, not the color.

Seriously every single official (Nike) item of clothing I have AT LEAST from my college days when Henne and Hart were headlining were all highlighter yellow. I hate the Steve and Berrys mustardy yellow I don't get how people think that was ever the true maize color. Michigan Maize is bright yellow and has been for at least 20 years.

They were not kids. One was 35 and the other almost 50 y/o.

You're not famous, but if you were, would you want to hand your cell phone over to anyone? You have a famous wife, you have children, you have your e-mail and possibly finaicial information on your phone. You would hand your phone over to someone to search it?
I don't even let my mom look at my phone.

How did he not cooperate? He didn't give his cell phone to some asshole with an axe to grind? There is no actual proof against him. If you fail a drug test, that's pretty cut and dry. This case had absolutely no solid evidence he asked to have the balls deflated below legal limits. Why is this so hard to understand?

First Kyle Brindza and now this kid? What is going on with the kids out of my hometown?! At least we have Brennan Beyer.

What if you like the block M more than the emblem or UMD? I don't have either but if I got the block M it wouldn't be to fool drivers next to me that I went to AA...it'd be bc I think the Block M looks cooler on a plate. Lol what an odd criticism. May I ask how old you are?

SLOW CLAP. End thread.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||This is one of the most||
This is one of the most confused statements in the entire thread. For the percentage of those that actually apply, a lot get in. Let's not pretend there aren't boatloads of Carib med students from UM-AA, despite their supposedly superior peer group, resources, and connections. Conclusion: you don't know what you're talking about per usual.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I totally get what you're||
I totally get what you're saying but I think these things are overstated. In the case of med school they want to know 1) are you gonna pass the curriculum and boards? And 2) are you gonna be a good compassionate clinician? The 4.0 tells you yes to the first question most likely yes, but not the second.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Not to mention your HS GPA||
Not to mention your HS GPA often depends on your personal maturity level and your home life/ support, not just academic intelligence. So we can also shut down that topic too please. Further, there are many types of intelligence. One of those types includes having perspective on your place in the world so you don't get too self-important. Top colleges don't seem to screen for that if this thread is any evidence :D
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Btw I'm sure there's some||
Btw I'm sure there's some dickhead who went to Hopkins in UG who applied to Wayne as his "backup" w a 3.4 GPA thinking he'd beat out "some asshole from public school (Michigan)" w a 3.65. Tough luck. They solve this problem w MCAT (I know still flawed) and other application aspects.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Tai luckily numbers aren't||
Tai luckily numbers aren't the only things that dictate who gets into med programs. I can tell you maybe 20-30 UMD students apply to US MD or DO schools - most of whom match up w anyone else applying. The rest go international or give up altogether. It's a small school w an even smaller premed community. You're at WSU so you can see that for yourself I'm sure bc we send a bunch there each year.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I had a similar experience.||
I had a similar experience. Now I'm in med school w some awesome UM-AA students who are performing just as well as I am w my UMD education and we greatly enjoy bonding over or UM fandom.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Lmao dude WMU is much easier||
Lmao dude WMU is much easier to get into than UMD FYI. Nearly all my friends who settled for WMU had ACTs in the upper teens. All of my remotely intelligent friends went to UM, MSU, Wayne, or one of Oakland/UMD.

Shot clock violation I saw as a makeup call. The shot right before that play the UW player was hit on the follow through. That should've been, IIRC, 3 shots at the line. I say UK got lucky there anyway bc UW could've gotten 3.

Super happy for the UW guys but feeling pretty bad for the UK kids. They worked so hard and it's so hard to do what they've done. Don't feel bad for Cal, or their fans...just the players.

I would put it this way:
Ease of post-graduation life: US MD > US DO > Carib or International MD
Personalize the other factors like cost, location, curriculum, interest in research, and your personal "feel" of the school when you go and interview. I chose a less "prestigeous" DO school vs a prominent one because I felt it was a place that would provide a great support system. I have no way of knowing whether or not my future has been negatively altered in some way as a result of this decision, but so far I'm very pleased with my decision to pick a school based on those factors.
Med school is becoming more competitive every year. Make sure you know you want to do it and get ready for the ride!
|9 weeks 2 days ago||If you have the choice, and||
If you have the choice, and you have a strong passion for an extremely competitive program like ortho, choose an MD school. It IS more likely just due to sheer numbers of residencies and perhaps a number of other factors. If you live and want to practice in a place like Michigan, Florida, Arizona, or Pennsylvania, these are considered "DO friendly" states. i.e. they have many current DOs working in the state as well as prominent DO programs. They have ACGME residency programs with many DOs as attendings and as residents. In a state like California...not so much.
Location matters. Academic center vs. Community hospital programs matter. If you're looking at a residency at UCLA medical center in orthopedic surgery, a DO degree would probably eliminate you.
Remember though, there are 141 or so MD schools compared to 30 DO schools. So if theres 650 MD students matching in ortho, there's prob 5X that applying to that as compared to a DO applying to that program. So that also will skew the statistics. DOs going into a competitive need to be smart and resourceful in how and where they apply. The thing is, I'd really say that for MDs as well.
Btw they just opened a new DO ortho residency program in MI.

Tai does that include AOA match? If not then one of the guys at my school was one of the 3 to match in neurosurgery! Lol
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Essentially, it's hard to get||
Essentially, it's hard to get into neurosurgery as a DO and an MD! I have family in Anesthesia, gen surgery, PMR, Rads, ENT, and EM. Most DOs do internal med or family but so do most MDs just based on the amount of open slots per year. I hope that helps answer your question a bit.
