Think back to highschool.....

Divide your highschool class into 25% nerds, 25% preps, 25% jocks, and 25% rebels.

Now take the 25% nerds, send them to medical school, and re-divide them into 25% nerds, 25% preps, 25% jocks, 25% rebels.

This is my medical school. I am a prep...I think.

Actually the breakdown at your and all med schools is going to be 25% nerds who know they are nerds, and 75% nerds who delusionally think they are, by comparison, preps, jocks or rebels. :laugh:

Don't feel too bad though -- if you are a jock wannabee you become an orthopod and can still hang out with the cool kids. If you fancy yourself a wannabee prep perhaps you go into plastics and help that crowd get those perfect turned up noses, and they may invite you to the club. Not sure what specialty a rebel wannabee would go into but it probably involves sticking something up someone's orifice.

We double-positive nerds prefer the term 'geek,' as in "He's a geek's geek," thank you very much! :laugh:

Sounds like someone fits the rebel wannabee category. :)

I have a very strong geek pedigree with my undergrad Elec Engineering degree. We always said, 'you can't spell gEEk without a EE'.

Actually, first day of orientation yesterday, there was a distinct difference between groups at lunch. (Obviously a small fraction of the whole class)

The table a few feet away was a large group of people who fit the loud, popular people mold. I was sitting with a smaller group of people who don't fit that category. Honest to G-d, you could hear them talking about who they knew in what fraternity or sorority.

I was an active member of my fraternity, I've worked as an engineer, I love Fight Club for it's philosphy, and I love being active. Upon arriving at orientation, I expect to be drawn and quartered.

haha. this reminds me of my undergrad, uchicago, where the social ladder is such that when you go there, you move up at least a rung from where you were in high school. A friend of mine who was a huge nerd, possibly even a dork in high school went to uchicago and ended up being a pretty cool jock. Ahh, such is the social scene at a school where you are taking honors bio with a frat boy/football player and he's kicking your ass on the exams.

I was a frat guy. Did nothing but party in college. Got my act together. Had a very cool/fun career/job for a few year. Got into medical school.

Frat guys are the silent assasins in your class. Trust me. I've seen it happen.

I believe that the breakfast club technically consisted of:

The princess (Molly Ringwald)
The jock (Emilio Estevez)
The brain (Anthony Michael Hall)
The criminal (Judd Nelson)
The basket case (Ally Sheedy)

Have I seen this movie way too many times? Yes.

:oops:
