    What's the hardest class you have ever taken in college?

    This is to all the premeds, med students and adcoms. I'm curious what everyone's most difficult class in college was? Which class caused you to study the most, and really REALLY made it difficult for you to do well? For me, I'd personally say it was Organic chemistry I. I just couldn't think...

    LOR Question?

    Alzheimer's Association?

    So I don't know if any of you are aware but there's an Alzheimer's association and I got an interview to volunteer there. Now I'll basically be a "coordinator" telling people about Alzheimer's and helping out with support groups. I don't think I'll really be interacting with Alzheimer's patients...
