    I was just at a family party and there were a number of medicine/dentistry students. i was talking to them about other degrees apart from dentistry and medicine and I was talking about bio-medicine pharmacy, optometry and some other courses. They all started laughing and said those courses are for rejects of medicine/dentistry. They said they often use their degree as a way to pick up girls too! I even heard about them saying that some of the students would bully the bio-med and pharmacy students calling them rejects.
    They genuinely considered all these other degrees 'below' them, I really hope I dont turn into one of these guys because Im really considering medicine/dentistry

    I always wondered why Med students are so hot for themselves.
    Being a MD or a Dentist is hardly meritocratic prestige anymore, just like a lot of degrees it requires AAA and you're in.

    Don't be offended, there are always people who like to think they are better and talk down as such.

    These degrees lost all credibility when universities started choosing males over females; despite the females having superior qualifications for the course.

    I agree medics/dentists can be arrogant.
    But the comment in bold is far, far from the truth.

    I wish that was the case.

    lol OP, one could argue that your comments in this thread you started were pretty arrogant and insulting: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...php?p=48444951 :p:

    I wouldn't be surprised either, pretty much everyone I know who is doing biomed or pharmacy wanted to or applied to Medicine/Dentistry.

    I have also found many Med & Dentistry students to be very snobbish.

    Medicine students in superiority complex shocker.

    In other news, the Pope confirms he considers himself a Catholic and scientists have concluded that water is indeed wet.

    If you meet those kind of students, just tell them you study maths. It works perfect. Because they are below Mathematicians/Physicist by far and they know it.

    I think "physicists" was the word you were looking for. :p:

    Physicians are doctors.

    It's quite sad to think that they're the sort of people we go to when we have problems in life.

    Obviously not every dentist/med student is like that. I know some genuinely lovely people that are med students, unfortunately there will always be a few arrogant ones among the bunch.

    I had to take a gap year last year for dentistry. Shouldn't let it get you down, 60% of applicants for med/dent dont get a place,

    No surprise. Not all of them are like that though. It tends to be the males with small **** syndromes, part of the reason they pick medicine in the first place. My best highschool female friend is in medicine and she's lovely and doesn't look down on anyone.
