I would agree with what lilycat said. I'm an MSI and I would say that there is a general feeling of helpfulness not just from your own classmates but from the upperclassmen as well. There are a lot of people who posts notes, diagrams, and helpful websites to the listserve as well. You can kind of feel the competitiveness as far as grades go. I have no intention of going for a highly competitive residency. Firstly cause I don't really want to, but also because just to compete with the type of grades that a lot of my classmates are pulling in, I would have to completely lose every vestige of my life to spend in the books. I'm not at the point of doing that. I know of some who stay up at the school until 11 at night just studying. There's no way I could do that.
