Ok, I don't have a ton of interesting observations, but i do have a couple. i thought we might start a little running list and let it serve as a resource for pple who have yet to go through it. so, here's mine: 1. If you ask "what are the best and worst things about your school?" you will get the same answers almost every time. the best thing is the people. the worst thing is the costs. 2. every single school in the country has board scores well above the national average. how? only the shadow knows. 3. most of the pple you meet on interview days are frauds. it's like chris rock said, you're not meeting a person, you're meeting their representative. don't be like this, these docs that interview you are smart and can tell a vapid, vacant smile and a whispy "wow, that's so great" type a mile away. 4. As a whole, med schools are quite similar. the main difference between the top ones and the rest is that they will open more doors for you. they don't necessarily deliver a better education. Ok, that's it for me for now. don't know if these were incredibly interesting, but they're things i've mulled over during the past year. if we can get a decent list going, then this might be useful.
