    Just joined this SDN. So how did everyone's M1 go. Did you choose the right school fit?
    Personally I can not believe I got through first year and it is really almost finished. I am staying for the summer and wonder what anyone else is going to do. Hope to find a job and mostly, see some family, study, and work on my research. I was nervous on many occasions, not sure if this was the right fit at times. I moved very far from my family and friends. Met some great people however. Studied until I could hardly breath sometimes. Got through it and have loved every second of this experience. Found my perfect school and city. Still can't believe I am here. Would love to hear about others.

    It sucked. School is still school and I still hate being there. Classmates are overly cheerful to the point of creepiness. The only redeeming factor is the material is marginally more interesting.

    Yeah, a message board for med students isn't the place to share your thoughts and feelings about med school with other people who are also in med school.

    Lol, I think that a message board is for many things, including sharing thoughts on Med School as we all go through it. I guess it is not such a great thing for many. I see some students that look like they are close to death. Thanks for sharing, have a life.

    Actually it's quite fine. Your MS-1 post as if you're writing a letter back home to your parents from summer camp leaves much to be desired.

    DermViser, in regards to your post after the snarky Judy Blume comment, I am finishing M1 and have not found the dark side to Med School at this point. I hope I do. I know I will. I will deal with it. I do hope that I do not end up being dark and negative. Looking forward to a life that I have always dreamed of at this point. That is way to positive for you to digest. It is my truth. Life is good.

    Nah, parents get phone calls. My post is just a post. If you find it to be tough to handle then just move on and read more Judy B. Enjoy

    Yes, like I said, you're an MS-1, who still has the protection of the classroom and you go to a school which is P/F (not sure if it's "true" P/F). Your viewpoint will change greatly by the end of your MS-3 clerkship year (esp. after OB-Gyn, Surgery), in which your viewpoint will change, maybe not "dark and negative" but more down-to-earth reality based vs. sailing in the cloud of your dreams.

    I have two mentors that are M3's, they do look pale and sort of dead. Yup, I get that my head is in the clouds and I get that this will change. It is what it is right now, I could die tomorrow for all I know and never make it past this minute. Thanks though for the heads up. I am in a P/F but scores but ranks are kept. If my viewpoint changes then it will change.

    C'mon man, let the naive MS-1s who are happy continue to be happy. Don't be the cantankerous old man who wants everybody to be all doom and gloom. The real aspect of medicine will hit them soon enough, and they'll either put up or break down.

    I'm all for people who love medical school and are happy as a bee at the beginning of spring, as long as they aren't talking to me (about how awesome it is to learn about embryology or whatever) in person. If they do that **** in person I'm gonna knock em out. Cause I can't stand overly enthusiastic people projecting their enthusiasm onto me.

    I would love this to happen just so I could see what Anastamoses and Arkangeloid are like in real life.

    And to hit on WingedScapula.

    2 A's.

    Don't think I won't stick to what I posted, even if you are a female.

    I mean I won't punch you to knock you out, but I will play fight with you. Like really intensely. Maybe I'll grab a pillow and knock you out with that.
    Agreed on all points. I think Ark and I would be friends if we knew each other IRL. Not sure about Anasto.

    You might have been the alpha with your loser friends. You're in my world now, son.

    Edit: I will allow you to be dragon, but only because I forgot which character was dragon.

    I've come to appreciate these people more and more the past few years. Not just M1s but also my own classmates.

    Better than the med students who constantly bitch and complain about everything.

    At rounds, during lunch, waiting at the bus stop, even out for a drink.

    It's like a full time job for some people.

    Actually, assholes are remarkably necessary. Try doing without one. Also, sup premed?

    I'm rather fond of vulgarity, if you're dishing out, does this mean that you're willing to take it?

    No, I'm seriously asking you. You're being rude and violating ToS, does this mean that you welcome a response in kind, because I don't want to be banned on account of you?

    I wish I could videotape your first encounter with a GI guy outside of a lecture hall (or even in one). Expect poop jokes, poop jokes everywhere.
