OK, I haven't even read the responses to my post on FMG's lately, but judging by some of the initial responses, I did offend some people. I do apologize, and I think that I was out of line and made some sterotypes I shouldn't have. I think I just have a lot of fears regarding the whole app. process, and when I really look at it, I'm scared that I will not be accepted and treated respectfully if I end up at a program with a lot of FMG's and DO's (which is quite likely). I have just heard too many horror stories about male FMG's (not so much from Europe) mistreating female residents and expecting them to be subordinate to them. I also get the impression on here that many DO students don't like their MD colleagues-to-be very much, and I can't say I blame them (I don't like mine very much either right now, for what it's worth). Anyway, I do apologize for writing out of my @$$, and look forward to working with anyone who manages to treat their patients and colleagues with a shred of respect. peace.
