    not that i dislike my non-fp classmates, but the fp ppl in my class are more likely to be laid back (non-gunner), cool, and nice ppl than others. plus, at my schl, they're much more likely to be service oriented (ie they want to help ppl outside of just patients), which i like.
    out of like 20 ppl who are going into fp at my schl, i dont think there's anyone that i wouldnt want to do residency with for 3 yrs.

    im sooo glad i'll be spending my next 3 yrs with FP ppl!

    Most specialties tend to self-select for certain personality traits. FM folks do tend to be pretty easy to get along with. ;)

    I forgot to mention this earlier...you have 20 people going into FM from your school?! That's quite a bit from one class.

    i've yet to meet a person going into FP that i didn't like. We are laid back, non-wacked individuals who truly still have a bit of idealism and who want to help people during a time when primary care may not always be looked upon too favorably.

    oh and we're usually very fun folks...!
