    "don't worry about it, you guys are being neurotic gunners and studying in too much detail"

    I don't understand why people feel the need to lie about studying, I mean, who are they trying to impress? Almost all med students are nerds anyways so who cares if people know you study? "That kid actually is trying to be successful? Lets kick his ass" :laugh:

    Some people want it to seem like medical school comes easy. Maybe for intimidation purposes?

    Others don't want to freak their friends out who have not studied as much.

    *studies for 3 weeks 24/7*
    "I totally didn't study for that test"
    "I didn't study enough at all"
    "I don't know anything about this"

    *Gets honors on exam*
    "I have no idea how I got that"
    "I'm emailing the professor about my grade"

    basically any hyperbole about how someone is going to fail or didn't study enough after studying more than enough

    So do I... I feel like in college, people would brag about how little they studied, but in med school they brag about how much they studied.

    Interesting. I wish people were more open, i mean im not going to judge someone who works hard. I will however look down on someone who thinks they are "too cool" to admit how much they study. As someone said, we are all somewhat nerds to have gotten into med school lol

    Yup. I never had any need for an account here before, but you were straight asking for it and nobody had said it yet.

    The investment of 25 seconds was wayyyy worth it.

    And yes. Snark. Deal with it. Whether by laughing at me to save face, crying into your pillow tonight, whatevs dude. The truth hurts any way it's delivered, snarky or otherwise. kthxbai

    i say i didn't study just to troll the gunners and overachievers. you should see the look of hatred on their faces when i pretend i've only "glanced" at the slides. maximumtrolling.gif

    i hate when people ask you how you got a higher score than them on an exam
    "i'm smarter than you or a harder worker than you. probably both."

    i just go with "i got lucky reading the right material"

    I don't know. I think these med students are overdoing these **** ____ say videos.
    It never gets as bad at my school. Hell, I don't remember the last time anyone asks if something is on the test or talks about tests after an exam. Well, maybe our class is just not normal haha.

    Yeah, I can't stand that. I don't talk to my classmates for at least 8 hours after a test because all they want to do is discuss why question 37's answer was B and not D. Then they get upset because they got like 3 questions wrong.:bang: Move on already! Test is done!

    I always called these types on their crap. Every weeknight, I kept asking them to go for drinks later, since they "didn't need to study" anyway (the bars in Ottawa are a good distance from the campus, which meant even more time away from the books). After they politely declined, I went home and hit the books, like they did. Everybody should call them on their crap.

    I didn't realize this was true until 2nd semester.

    The easiest way to spot them is how much they talk about NOT studying. If they constantly talk about how they are not studying/gunning, then they are the worst offenders. I don't mind people working hard, it's the people that are disingenuous that are annoying.

    As an anecdote many of my classmates come from pretty well off households. That's not to say that they didn't have trials and tribulations of their own, but most never had to worry about money.
