Do you guys tell others that you're pre-med? Do you try to keep the fact that you're pre-med under wraps? Unless people try to really dig deep, I generally don't tell people I'm pre-med. Even if people ask what I'm majoring in, I tell people that I'm majoring in humanities, and don't tell them that I'm also pre-med. Why? Because I find that when I tell people I'm pre-med, they are all of the sudden taken back; their countenance suddenly turns harried and their perception of you completely changes. You become "one of those." One of those crazy science hermits for whom any sort of fun or nonacademic activity is as toxic as the venom of mutant african cobras. You don't like having fun, you don't like having friends, and you're only pleasure in life can be found deep in the laboratory staring through the ocular of a microscope. You wear lack of sleep as a badge of pride, you think all non-pre-med's are intellectually inferior, and all feel inferior when around you. True or not, such is the stigma. This is a stigma that I try my best to escape. Do any of you try as hard as I do to avoid this stigma, or do you find that it's not such a big deal? I really am very curious about the scope of other people's self-presentation of being pre-med.
