    that's why boston or nyc would be such great places to go to med school...there are so many schools there that you can meet other people (students) your age with the same interests

    The trick is to be as diplomatic as you can about EVERYTHING and be careful of what you say. Medical school is an incredibly small community. EVERYTHING you say will be heard by everyone, literally. So, if you inadvertently say something bad about some one because of a slip, chances are, that person will know. Better to keep a distance from everyone. That way, you are professional in front of your peers, but you can vent to your non-medical school buddies.

    vyc, by roommates do you mean 2 people sharing 1 room or 1 person per room but with multiple rooms in a complex? because i don't think you will see much of the former (ewwww... been doing that for four years and i don't ever ever want to do it again), but at many med schools, you'll have to do the latter, which is not bad at all imo

    matthew0126, i meant that i REFUSE to share 1 one room with anyone else. but i'll be okay with sharing a multi-room apartment. that's tolerable.
    i guess. :)

    i haven't had to have a roommate since my first-year of college! i've been lucky.

    agreed. after four years of having to endure each of my roommate's quirks (and i'm sure vice versa for them too), varied noises, smells, horrible teenpop music, and a lot of other much grosser things as they sit 5 feet away from me in a little cubicle, i would reject any school outright if they forced me to share a room again. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
