    Really? I swear the majority of people in med are a minority anyway lol #stereotype
    Asians are a minority in this country but because asians apply the most they are not a minority in that field. You dnt see a lot of somalis doing medicine so if they applied they would consider that you are a minority... a minority not only in the country but in that field.

    I would love to have british born people in my class at whichever uni I go to next year inshallah. Soo many ppl I know are sayin that their class has a lot of chinese (mostly) and other international students.

    Medicine? Hell no. Dont want to be a doctor. Civil Engineering is the one for me.
    Like 90 per cent of applicants choose it just because its nice pay and they are really good academically.
    70 per cent are pressured into it.

    Them chinese ppl are clever man, they make me feel dumb.

    Apparently the names of their graduate children are written with gold leaf ink on the walls of their homes as a reward and motivation for other members of the family.
    I dont know if this is variably true but it sounds incredible.

    Is it true in medicine, they consider the fact that you are a minority? Heard it from a medicine applicant who is somali. Pretty awesome if it is.
