話說今天是鬼門開的第一天。

 

(TMDSAS 系統5/18開始可以填資料,今天我就上去搶頭香了XD)

 

一大早考完生化之後就趁著考生理之前先去網站上看看。



填了幾個部分試試看系統,

 

沒想到填到國籍那邊的時候我就傻眼了......

 

沒有 Taiwan 這個選項,也沒有 Republic of China,



當然更不會有 Chinese Taipei...XD



最接近的居然是:China



要我填這個就跟我看到 Taiwan, Province of China 一樣讓我萬分火大!

 

 

俗話說「漢賊不兩立」,我為什麼要自甘墮落去選 China?

 

但是國籍那欄總不能空白吧@@

 

於是我就寫了封信去問 TMDSAS 系統,



系統也揪甘心,我寫了信過去問立刻就回覆我,



回信的小姐說:沒有 Taiwan 這個選項,但是 Taiwan = Republic of China,



所以叫我選 China。(默)

 

賊位小姐!(People's Republic of) China ≠ Republic of China 好不好!

 

我看了傷當火大,寫了封回信嚴辭抗議說:



China and Taiwan are two countries and Taiwan, sometimes being refered as


Republic of China, is not equal to or being part of


(People's republic of) China (which held the 2008 Olympic summer game).

 

然後再捅一刀說:

 

I feel respected by using Taiwan as my nationality.


結果三分鐘之後就來了封信:


I will request that our programmer add Taiwan to the list.

 

 

這年頭果然是會吵的小孩才有糖吃。(遠)


其實這也看得出來,老外跟本不 care 你們到底是 Taiwan 還是 China。



只有我們還在那邊琢磨 ROC 還是 Taiwan 還是 Chinese Taipei......= =+



雖然現在眾多申請或是考試的系統有 Taiwan 這個選項,



但偏偏還是有系統根本不把台灣放在眼裡。



看到裡面T那一行裡面什麼國家都有(連千里達都有得選)



就唯獨我怎麼找都找不到 Taiwan,



再回頭看到島上還在玩顏色/文字遊戲,



真的不是只有「心寒」二字可以形容......

 

--

TMDSAS 真的只是冰山一角,天曉得還有多少系統也是這樣呢......

  • 基本上呢………還滿多的(哈哈哈~orz)
    不過還是有些特別區分出來就是了
    希望我申請某研究所時…該死的義大利人要給我分清楚。

    老人家我上次就因為這樣,所以就不加入某商業網站,因為實在太不爽了(大笑)…
    不過確實很多老外跟本不太在乎這個
    講白了…有的義大利人跟他說台灣,他還不定還問你是泰國嗎?
    這我老師說的~有問題記得找她(笑)
  • 之前我申請別的考試時都沒有這種問題,
    TMDSAS 還是第一個讓我碰到的勒.....= =+

    真的是,德州人不意外。(爆)

    沒錯沒錯!
    我第一次去新加坡遊學的時候就被問說:
    Aren't you from Thailand!?
    Why you speak perfect Chinese?(默)

    我只不過是皮膚黑了點,賊位同學您有必要這樣嗎?XD

  • KC

  • 我昨天也email他們了
    沒想到還有別人跟我一樣火大
    不知道去年以前是什麼樣的情形?
    TMDSAS實在太誇張讓我不怎麼想申請了
    一堆地圖上一丁點的國家都有了
    台灣有2300萬的人口竟然就硬生生的消失
    還是AMCAS比較好
  • 喔~歡迎新朋友!XD

    八成就算有台灣同胞申請大概也是選 "others" 吧.....
    我真的覺得太誇張了,怎麼可能沒有台灣,
    我還來回找了好幾次確定沒有看到 "Taiwan" 才寫信去問的.....
    連Trinidad and Tobago都有了,為什麼台灣沒有!
    結果怒火攻心之下就寫信去問為什麼沒有台灣XD

    不過身為德州居民還是要走 TMDSAS 啊~(攤手)
    不知道AADSAS會不會好一點....
    6/1 就知道了!XD

  • kkk
  • hahaha....UCI UCR 也是...
    我都選 Others -> Taiwan...XD
    倒是 Cal state LA...居然有台灣選項..hahahah...XD
    對了...昨天因為太心急...跟UCI嗆說UCR收我還要給我錢...
    叫他快點給我admission...
    然後就被UCI拒絕了..Orz....
    看來我接下來的兩年要在沙漠中度過了.. T.T
  • 嘖嘖,身為台灣同胞應該要去抗議一下的啊!XDDDD

    噗......
    沒關係啦,有錢拿還是很好啊~
    住沙漠就乖乖跑實驗室當宅男,這樣說不定博班可以申請到很好的地方XD
    我如果考到附近的城市例如 Pomona 或是 Loma Linda 的話就可以去探望你了XDDDDD

  • lancel
  • 你真大膽XDDDD

    說不定會有大陸人寫信去投訴為什麼有台灣@@||||
    ↑哦、我是說笑的XD
    大陸人在這方面很CHICKEN(攤手

    支持你哦XDDDD

  • 哈哈哈哈~我只是嚥不下這口氣罷了!XD
    看到沒有台灣就覺得這群德州佬太過份了~
    虧我媽還年年繳州稅勒~(口亨)

    對岸同胞就算是寫信去抗議的話應該會被官方打回來吧XD
    反正 TMDSAS 也不是大陸開的啊~(爆)

    那我替台灣2300萬同胞感謝您的支持!(喂)

  • Mr. Lee
  • GOOD JOB!!
    I am pretty sure there is "Taiwan" on AADSAS.....10 year ago when I apply....And I claim to be "Pacific Islander" rather than Asian...hahahaha

    When I interview with Loma Linda, many of old instructor had been to Taiwan before. During the interview, the Dean actually mentioned that they have "some Chinese student but not many Taiwanese student". Cali people knows Taiwan and China are two different country ^_^

    Good luck with the process...

  • OMG!! Are you "the Mr.Lee" from blog "kitty_bistro"?
    I've been a loyal reader to the blog!!!

    Back to the topic, I believe that's what every Taiwanese wants to do :)
    Maybe I should consider to claim myself as a Pacific Islander instead of Asian...lol

    Cali. people indeed knows more and can distinguish between Taiwan and China. During my one year stay in CA, I feel everyone knows where Taiwan is. (maybe there's just too much Taiwanese people XD)

    So, did you receive your degree from Loma Linda? It's among my primary scholl choices, I will be thrilled to be accepted by Loma Linda. (Actually, I will be thrilled to enter any Dental School in the US...haha)

    Thank you, and hope I will be strong enough to survive the stressful application process :)

  • Mr.Lee
  • Wow, thank you for reading Verano's blog. She had been very busy on her other project and havn't had time to update at all.

    I claimed to be "Pacific Islander" just so some idiot don't think me and the chinos are "the same".

    I am indeed a Loma Linda graduate. I choose Loma Linda at that time because it was cheaper than other school I got in. It is very strong on the clinical side but weak on research/acadamic side. Because of it's unique location, numerous missions and out-reach programs, all of the students have much more clinical experience by the time we graudate than most of other school. I think 90% of graduates who is not into speciality program would went directly into working or opening their office. The 10% that went to GPR/Rsidency program were aiming for specialty program.


    Email me if u want more detail.

  • Not at all :) It's a very useful blog. I think Verano's such a talented person that she can always come up with so many delicious recipes and I hope to read more when she updates the posts. Please let her know I really enjoy that she's been sharing with all of us.

    Indeed! Tons of American people think of me being Chinese as soon as I tell them my native language is Chinese. But I've never come up with any way to distinguish myself from those "mainlanders" until your "Pacific Islander" idea...LOL

    West coast schools are my priorities, but too bad I wasn't Washington residents, otherwise UW is my top choice without any doubt :( And I am really relived to hear that Loma Linda is strong on clinic side, because some east coast schools, students just have to compete with each other to grab a patient (that's what I've heard from a Harvard graduate) plus one of my dreams is to be on a volunteer trip to some underserved communities.

    I haven't decided to go general practice or specility even though I am doing some research work with a Perio dentist in UW. I think my goal right now is to get myself into a dental school :P

    Thank you so much for these helpful info!! I am soooo happy to have someone that actually graduated from one of my dream schools to share the first hand info :) I might need your advice in the near future on many things but before that, I just can't thank you more :)
