Look I'm excited to learn the basic sciences and do research at med school, but I'm also trying to find a wife (perhaps more important).

What schools have good dating cultures and a lot of intermingling?

I've heard good things about Wake Forst, USF, any others?

Hey you don't have to explain anything, we're all pretty much here to find wives or husbands. Start with Tinder and radiate outwards.

Are you tryna with someone in your class/school? Otherwise, I'd say somewhere in a large-ish city where there are other young professionals would be your best bet. This is tied into social life, which I think is a somewhat important consideration ...

You wont have time for a neurotic sig other as a medical student. I've seen reports of around 20% divorce rate for med students. Having said that, my wife and I were married as students,she a 1st yr and I a 4 th yr. The difference being she was an elite student, so med school was not much of a stress.
If she had been the average med student, like me, it would have been very stressful. Best advice is to get into med school first. Being a med student won't make you cuter for the girls until you are a resident. Girls are smart!

Thank you, this is what I'm looking for. Will definitely be putting a lot of effort in my Case essays. Any others from people who interviewed at / are attending other schools?

Tell my the good things you've heard about USF. I CTE'd there a week ago.

I have a friend who goes there and she said that she and a couple of her other friends have all found long-term SOs at USF. Don't know much else besides that though.

Any med school school once the ladies know you're going to be a doctor. Especially the greedy ones.

What they don't know is that those who marry for money have to earn it.

Do you have similar stats for Residency?
No. AAMC has data on premeds as well as in-depth questionnaires for incoming medical students and graduating seniors. After the newly minted doctors disperse to different specialties, it is hard to keep track. There are many smaller studies that usually follow graduates from a specific medical school. A quick google search found an interesting statistics that is germane to the discussion here

Physicians' Divorce Risk May Be Linked To Specialty Choice
Physicians who married before medical school graduation had a higher divorce rate than those who waited until after graduation (33 percent versus 23 percent). The year of first marriage was linked with divorce rates

Only 20%??? So you’re saying that medical students have a better chance than the average American couple which last time I checked the divorce rate was around 50%?

"25% of graduating medical students are married"

Why do you think this is so high? It seems relatively higher.

Familiarity breeds consent.
- Oscar Wilde

I have no idea; though it would be interesting to research

https://www.aamc.org/system/files/2019-08/2019-gq-all-schools-summary-report.pdf
U.S. medical school graduates who were legally married in 2019 comprised 23.2% of GQ respondents. This represents a decline of 2.5 points since 2016 (25.7%) when the question was introduced to the GQ. Perhaps relatedly, the percentage of graduates who reported having dependents other than a spouse also declined in recent years: from 9.2% in 2016 to 7.7% in 2019

Simple Google search of medical student divorce rate revealed 20 to 50 % divorce rate for students. I went with the lower number to be safe. Of the 6 couples we were friends with in med school, only one is divorced, so again, I went with the lower number.

Do you have a particular 'type' of wife in mind? For example, are you wanting to marry another medical student? Or would you prefer a nurse? Are you looking for your equal? Or more of an adoring fan?

Then I can't imagine why any med school would be unsatisfactory in that regard. There are some where the gender ratio is out of skew, but only a few. You may want to look more closely at schools proximate to large universities or allied health schools.

But really, I wouldn't let it impact your application strategy too much. Your odds of being able to find "cute, kind, and not boring" at any school are far greater than your chances of being admitted to any particular school, so really, until you have multiple acceptances, it's not even a real choice...

I heard it’s common to find a Suga momma (or sugar daddy but most pre-med students I know are Splenda Daddies) to help you emotionally And financially through med school but doctors almost always find a way to start Family 2.0 with the very attractive nurse / PA recently brought onto the practice. That being said the endgame is when residency ends.

I wouldn't read it that way at all. The general 50% number is measured from the moment the couple says "I do" until they divorce or one of them dies. The medical student figure only measures the narrow slice of time one or both of them are in medical school. Of course the medical student number will be radically lower! Compare doctor divorce rates to the general population before drawing a conclusion! Apparently that is around 25%, so there is something there!!!! :)

The general population divorce rate is primarily driven by a small number of people who get divorced 3-4-5 times.

The divorce rate is radically lower when both partners are in their first marriage. It's also radically lower if the partners are A) older when they marry B) have higher education (bachelors degrees and above) C) earn more money.

The typical doctor obviously has a bachelors degree, most marry a bit older than the general population, and most are economically comfortable. Yes, there's stereotypes of surgeons who divorce a dozen times - but every single demographic factor is in favor of doctors actually divorcing lower than the general rate of the population. For a couple where they're both educated, on their first marriage, in their mid 20s, and financially stable, the divorce rate is 20% at most.

While you're looking for a wife, I'm trying to avoid an arranged marriage with this Polish girl my parents are setting me up. My parents want me to quickly get engaged or married before I start medical school so I won't get distracted with my studies :rolleyes:.
