SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) From the "Why Stanford is Awesome" website "Online lectures (at 2.5x speed). Every lecture is digitally video recorded. I attended about 10% of my classes, and watched most of the rest online at high speed from home. It was a much more efficient way to absorb information for the way I study." OK, I've had lousy professors before, and I've alwys attended more than 50% of lectures. Why would you want to go to med school--esp Stanford med, of all places--just to sit in front of your laptop and listen to lectures?!?!?!??! It's not just this site. Many people on this forum have mentioned how much more convenient/efficient online lectures are for med school, and I wonder why they're throwing this opportunity away.......... Med school peeps, is this true? Once you getthere, do you really get so overwhelmed you end up learning everything from your computer? That is sad.
