    That was great. The 50% one is good. I remember reading some guys quote about doctors (not word for word right but roughly)

    "I'm afraid of going to a hospital. Did you know that 50% of doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class..."
    It's an oldie but a good'un

    Interesting read.

    Remember, all truth is relative!

    Is it weird that I still think medicine sounds awesome? :lolwut:
    Not really, considering most of the people in this thread are either doctors, current med students or applicants, and I doubt anyone's been put off by that rather epic list.

    The way i see it, you have to be weird to make it in medicine.

    this is 101 reasons why i want to do medicine.
    i thought it was gonna be a list full of bad stuff but this is exactally what i expect from med school.

    to be honest though you could prob apply alot to any course at any uni, esp; people sleeping with each other/teachers, the high lighter girl, the guy who messes around and still gets good grades, rumors spreading fast, memorable parties, meeting friends/wife/husband. just general going to uni stuff, not med school stuff.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but haven't you not been to uni yet?

    Some of my favs most applicable to TSR


    At the beginning of first year, everyone will talk about how cool it’s going to be to help patients. At the end of third year, everybody will talk about how cool it’s going to be to make a lot of money.


    The best time of your entire medical school career is between the times when you first get your acceptance letter and when you start school.

    During the summer before medical school starts, do not attempt to study or read anything remotely related to medicine. Take this time to travel and do things for you.

    3 and 44 are very valuable pieces of advice. It feels weird the first time you realise you have the bottom score on a test out of your friends, if you're used to being at the top.

    This is why so many gay guys go to medical school. Don't mind if they are top or bottom. :p:

    I'm loving the list. Somehow I'm liking medical school more and more. Kinda scared by no. 44. I mean do medicine students get along fine? I think there would be friction between people who are "gunning" for the 'top spot' :rolleyes:

    All you keen ass medical applicants, this is 100% TRUE!
    I know as an applicant you see medicine through rose tinted glasses and everything is perfect, but its really not! Take this list seriously! Medicine is the biggest ball ache you will ever experience!

    Other than that have fun!

    Quite honestly I think being a non-breeder should be part of the entrance criteria for medical school. :yep:
