Hello Everyone,

I am currently trying to find a postbac program that is for someone who (1) is not a minority, (2) has completed all the science prereqs (aka not a career changer), and (3) offers some type of linkage with a medical school.

I currently found VCOM's postbac, which I will be applying to. I would like to find a few more similar programs. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

Nobody tells me what to do, sorry. Could someone just post a list of postbacs that satisfy my requirements (non-minority, non-career changers, etc.). Thanks!

Good lord... and people like this have a chance at becoming doctors...
Are you going to cut the nurses with your scalpel when they don't fetch what you need quickly enough? You don't seem like a very nice person.

Yes, exactly. Medicine is hierarchical, and to continue your analogy, that nurse would be putting the patient in danger and needs to be told how to do her job correctly by a doctor, and his attitude is important to doing that. /thread

My trust fund is probably bigger than your house, just fyi. But back on track, does anybody know the TOP FIVE programs most similar to VCOM's?
Sorry, I've just added you to my ignore list.

Manners > meanness.
I have met plenty of nice doctors, and plenty of doctors who are straight up what-is-stuck-up-your-ass-today doctors, and guess who EVERYONE (patients and staff included) like more? And are willing to help out more? THE NICE PERSON! PEOPLE LIKE NICE (competent) PEOPLE!

A ****ty attitude won't get you very far in life, and if it happens to, well, you'll be a miserable old lonely bastard and die alone in your recliner one day....


**Mods please excuse my French, just defending the turf :punch:

Just a troll trying to bait people, don't spend too much energy responding, the hammer approaches.

Maybe you could take the wonderful list Goro gave you and the wonderful link LizzyM gave you and do your own searching.

Loose cannon, rather than an outright troll.

I get very nervous around people who knee-jerk the 'don't tell me what to do! !" when you give then advice. Control issues and all that.

You guys realize this is a troll right?

The sound of the juicy hammer slamming against a pesky loose cannon. :singing::headphone:

It will be an awesome day when the Lounge (and specialty forums) crashes the party at Preallo :sneaky::sneaky:

Yeah, no, not really. Ever wonder what happens when you try to pull a "sick trolling" on an adcom? Ask that guy.

I think it was that same troll who kept saying "don't tell me what to do" in the Creationist vs. Evolution thread a couple of days ago.
