    Following Schools on LinkedIn

    Does anyone have a list of med schools that check your LinkedIn profile? I follow several schools whose research I am interested in, but not all schools on my list. I am concerned that schools will think I am not interested and reject me if they view my public profile and see that I am not...

    Social Media + Decision process

    Two questions: 1. Do members of the admissions committee ever google or check social media accounts of their applicants? 2. What is the decision process like at medical schools? Are decisions made soon after the interview is over or after several meetings and discussions?

    Etiquette For Joining Class Facebook Group?

    For people in the lucky position of having multiple acceptances (or one acceptance but future interviews), do you join the accepted students facebook group for schools where you're not 100% sure you'll attend? Or wait until you've committed somewhere and join only that one? I'm not...

    Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic

    We see it in medical students: immature developmental social skills, lack of skill sets to interact with patients and peers, playing on their laptops / phones during lectures, heads buried in their electronic devices during clinical rotations and rounds, terrified to meet with faculty to address...

    Social Media

    So I know this has been covered extensively and it's safer to be cautious but do adcoms really take the time to look at applicant's social media? Is this more of a possibility later on in the process, when deciding whether or not to give an interview?

    ERAS: So begin the social media name changes.

    All my friends filling out ERAS for residency have started changing their names on Facebook. I have very stringent privacy setting on my profile. Two questions: 1.) Should I change my name? 2.) If I should change my name, what should I change it to? Please keep all responses professional (LOL)

    Privacy or publicity?

    With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, linkedin, Snapchat, etc. I think many people can be googled or searched on multiple social media sites. But the big question is, should I publicize everything I do on the internet or should I keep everything private? I've researched around some forums and it...

    Good social media blocking apps?

    I'm looking for an app for my iPhone that disables Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. I want to be able to access these apps during the evening, but not during the day while I should be studying. I'm sure everyone agrees that these apps are distracting, and like it or not, we are all a bit...

    Could making a popular medical/premedical page on Instagram possibly help with admissions?

    I'm just wondering if it would add up to my profile to make a medical social media page. It would be mainly about the progress of medicine these days, premed/med student motivation, etc. Considering I can get it to be popular, do you think admissions would see it as a plus having 25k+ followers...

    Pediatricians, what are your thoughts on patients filming you while you work?

    Okay so..... this is the era of technology and social media. I was sedating a toddler, and the parents were very nervous. I did allow them to stay in the room. At some point, without my knowledge, the father pulled out his phone and started videoing everything that I and sedation team were...
