    I just think we live in a very vain society. We live in a culture that values aesthetics and we often tend to forget the important things. They are nothing more than a product of society. I've gotten...

    People need to keep in mind that it is all about who you know. If you don't know anyone at Mt Sinai to help you get in, chances are slim. Recruiters do not call you back. I was given an interview at...
