SG donor database

Hello
Well, we were approved for the 1:3 program for Shady Grove, and were assigned our username/pw. We were disappointed to see that there were only 12 donors total of all races in this program - surprising because when I was given a temp password there were 40+ - including one who was my exact ethnicity (mixed asian/caucasian) & body-type (5'7", medium build.) Of these, there is only one who could be passable - but I don't want to pick someone just to pick someone. I don't want to sound cruel - but really it looks like these women are not the caliber we had hoped - heavier, shorter, older, less athletic. Did anyone else have this experience with SG? Did waiting a month help? Does anyone have an idea how much the pool increases if we pay the extra $9K?
Thanks

Susan

If we have time we will have to check out the pan/asian sounds yum...


So when you did your transfer you stayed there for 3 days? Or do you live in the area - I had thought about that - for my IVF they told me to lay low for 3 days if I could - I laid around for 2 days then got up - but stayed home from work.


I am sure I shouldnt get on a plane right after... Hmm maybe lay in the back seat LOL
