    Well... check this out.
    I'm a PT phlebotomist in a local hospital, and met Albany MS4 med student the other day there. She was doing one of her last rotations in our ER and is graduationg soon. Anyway, that girl was watching me drawing blood from baby, and when I asked how was Albany and did they teach her practical skills, she said: "You'd be appaled. This is a rotation supposed to do that". I've never seen med student holding needle in our ER..
    You may say it's not that important for future doc, but I'm pretty sure residency directors think otherwise.

    I can't believe how rude your post is JohnM! I don't know if this poster made a typing error..but did you for a for a minute stop to think that perhaps english is not his/her ist language?!?!?!? Is this how you react to those who are not as "eloquent" as you? :rolleyes: I hope not...That was very immature...I understood the point..and I am sure you did too..perhaps that's why your reply was obnoxious..I guess you are interested in Albany? Well....grow a thicker skin...someone will always say something less then stellar about your med school.If you like it...then who cares about the rest of the world?!?!?

    Anyway...you and those who found your post funny should think about how insensitive your comments are.

I think clinically strong schools are more favorable to residency directors. But you need to include other factors such as Step 1 scores and overall clerkship preformance.

    I suggest that you chill out dude, I'm just messing around, and I never claimed to be more eloquent than anyone else. But I seriously could not understand what half of his post was saying. :) I am, however, a pretty sarcastic prick, and kudos to you for picking up on that. Fortunately, being a prick, I don't care what you think.

    btw, no I'm not considering Albany anymore, but I still think that it is stupid to put up a post where you sole intention is to rag on another school. Further, if you are going to do such an obnoxious thing, you might as well proof-read it so that you don't look like as much of an a$$hole.

    By the way, if the point is that "schools that teach their students better are favored by residency directors" then let me be the first to agree, and also to nominate Barin for the Pointing-Out-The-Obvious Award.

    Personally, I just think he's trying to get a rise out of everyone.

    When you guys get to clinical rotations, you will find that a lot of your clinical education, especially procedures, is dependent on your aggressiveness. Some people go through without ever doing procedures because they don't make it known that they want it and they don't pursue it. Each clinical rotation is what you make out of it, no matter what school you go to.

    Let me just say that I have not read two more beautiful posts on SDN before. Besides the fact that you shouldn't burn others while making it insanely easy to get burned back, your other observations are right on point. I agree with your remarks completely. Therefore, I nominate you to present that Pointing-Out-The-Obvious.

    Dude people, try not to blatantly attack the current or future home of SDNers.
