Hello everyone! I hope everything is going well for you guys. I'm feeling extra chipper because I received a B on a test I drove myself crazy over. And my birthday was last week, I'm the big 20. I don't feel any different, however. I still feel 17 lol. Anywho, I was talking to a good friend of mine the other day who's also a pre-med (she has aspirations of becoming an OB/GYN) and we were both talking about our deep hatred for general bio. Her: I can't stand biology, all we learn about is cells and genetics and boring stuff like that. I'm only interested the stuff about the human body. I hope med school is different. I wanna deliver babies, I don't need to know about cells to do that. Me: Cells are the basic building blocks to all living things. Everything basically starts from the cell. Med school won't be much different, it just won't have all the stuff about plants. And in med school there's 'medical genetics.' Her: -____- Screw that, I'm switching to nursing. Was I right about what I said? I was looking through a step 1 study booklet and the material was similar to concepts in general bio. I saw a lot of questions about amino acids and stuff like that. And do you guys think there's a misconception about how med school is? Some people think that on the first day the students start poking and probing each other and diagnosing, but in reality the first two years are in a classroom setting like undergrad. The basic sciences have to be learned first, right? I remember somebody on this board said that the first two years were a glorified biology grad program.
