While not the object of your question, I will take a stab at it.imrep1972 said:Ok, another question... (too much time on my hands )
There is a thread on the pre-med forum about gunners and animals. It got me to thinking. In your experience, are the students in the SMP at G-town gunners?
Personally, I am someone who enjoys studying hard (guess I would qual as an animal) but I am VERY interested in working *with* my classmates to make sure that as many of us as possible do well and achieve our goals. Do you think that is something that will be realistically possible there, or would I be wasting my time, generally speaking?
As over half of the classes are med school classes....you need to understand how the grading goes.
The 180 med students take the test, same time smp's do. The med students establish a curve--10-15% get honors.
Poof, those grad students that score in that range (be it 2% or 42%) get A's. Therefore, with the exception of applying to GUSOM, the smp's are competing against the MSI students' curve.
The grad school classes, yes technically you are competing but more than a Bell curve's worth of students get A's.
Hope this helps, and maybe premed will help if I am in error.
