    If this is the sole reason for you to enter medicine, I suggest you find a different career. Medicine does not need any more money-hungry respect seeking dorks like you.

    This seems to be bashing the chinese folks applying to med school
     
  7. How do you know he's Chiniese?

    Anyway, I agree with moo. We do NOT need more applicants who are just in it for the money and prestige. Besides, docs don't make all that much money anymore. If you want lots of money, go into business or IT.

    I don't mean to offend anyone, but in order to practice medicine and attend school in the US, you MUST be proficient in English. If practicing in the US is your goal, you may want to consider enrolling in an ESL program or something similar to it.

    (This comment is based on the grammar that you used in your posts. Perhaps this is just your chat room slang typing, but it seems like you don't even have proper sentence structure.)

    Beyond learning English, you need to have a good GPA, high MCAT scores, experience in the medical profession, and possibly some (or lots) of research experience depending on what you want to do in medicine.

    I think Oscar's bang-on. This post immediately struck me as a fake, designed to incite hostility against Asian pre-meds. Amitha, how do we know he's [pretending to be] Chinese? Some of the linguistic anomalies are very characteristic, and easy to imitate if you are familiar with them, specifically the lack of the verb "to be": "My name Charles. I applying..."

    Yet these ideosyncracies are generally limited to SPOKEN English, and they disappear in written English, which is another thing that makes me think that this post is a fake.

    Charles2240, if you're genuinely an ESL pre-med seeking advice, my apologies for doubting you. But this post just doesn't ring true to me.

    Note that leotigers called attention to a since-deleted post that was apparently "mocking the Vietnamese immigrant by spelling things wrong and faking a bad Chinese accent." Sounds familiar.

    Currently, I am working with a number of people from Korea and China. In China, the emphasis within learning the English language is on reading and writing - NOT SPEAKING. When we have problems talking/understanding in the lab, we usually write it out. It is the clearest way for us to communicate. Therefore, my position is close to omores.

    This guy COULD be a fake. It's really hard to tell, but I don't think "assist me" is a typical thing that Chinese people say, i.e., it's not your stereoptypical thing. Anyway, whether he's a fake or not doesn't really concern me... I just don't like that "medicine is money and respect" crap.

    Hello! Can anyone say sarcasm? Step back and appreciate this comment for what it is?a joke. Any non-premed would immediately recognize this as a parody of the everyday threads in this forum. As future physicians it is important to be able to relate to patients?this includes appreciating humor. Only premeds could contort Charles? statements into a racial attack or, even worse, take them seriously.

    Charles,

    Here's some GENUINE advice for you. Read some books, and learn the English language, because from what I see here, you will probably not score much higher than a 5 on the verbal section of the MCAT... which basically means you can kiss medical school goodbye.

    Since there is absolutely NO intellectual humor in the post, it is difficult to not take it somewhat serisouly. Obviously, one would be naive to believe that there arent people here immature enough to post such parody like humor, but it is much easier to simply answer the question.

    Poochikitty,

    That was your first post, a flame? Unbelievable.

    Or, was that just a change in username to post something that you wouldn't use your regular name for? If so, that is shameful. I would rather work with Charles.

    On the off chance this is serious, Charles, you do need to make sure that your ability to read and write English seriously improves before you attempt to take the MCAT. There is a verbal section, and a writing sample -- you should do well on both of those, otherwise it will be very difficult to get into any US medical school.

    I found a few of the previous comments quite offensive. I live in California and I volunteer in the emergency department at UCSF. Whites are now the minority and people of color now constitute the majority. I encounter numerous patients who are not fluent in English or don't speak English all together. Many of the patients are Russian and Spanish immigrants. I would hope that those of you who end up becoming doctors learn to be more respectful of others. As a doctor, would you dehumanize your patients by making them feel inferior because they don't converse and write in English proficiently? Many of the allopathic schools in California and Texas encourage medical school applicants to become fluent in Spanish. This is telling you something!!!! Medical schools want people who can respect and communicate with patients who aren't fluent in English! I agree that everyone is entitled to free speech, but please leave the disrepect and inconsideration at home when you post a reply.

    Charles, I would highly encourage you to take ESL courses to enhance your communication skills. If you truly want to attend medical school in the US, then you have to be able to read and write proficiently in English. Your understanding of the English Language will become a hinderance on the verbal section. Furthermore, you want to be able to articulate and communicate because you need to interview well in order to get into medical school. I understand that you have intentions of helping others, but I really hope monetary gain is not the main reason why you want to pursue a career in the medical field. I encourage you to pursue your goals and attending medical school is not impossible. My uncle came to the US without any knowlege of English and he took ESL courses. He attended UCSF and he is now an OB/GYN for Kaiser. Grammar can be learned and you can ameliorate your communication skills if you work at it. I hope my two cents worth has provided you with some constructive criticism.

    Whoever is writing under the name of Charles:

    You have way too much time on your hands. It's so obvious that you probably speak perfect English and are writing as a joke--either to inflame people or as an attempt to be funny. Whichever it is, you sound like a dork. I'd suggest stopping.

    Poohbear,

    I agree with you. Charles, you need some serious help. On the off chance that Charles is writing for advice for "real" and this is a legitimate concern, then Charles, you need some serious help with your writing.

    Oh--well, I guess that means either way Charles, you need some serious help.

    Good luck buddy.... [​IMG]

    I too think it is a put on and in very bad taste at that. Unbecoming to a premed who is altruistic and wants to help people. Except for Native Americans, the first immigrants who discovered an empty (of humans) New World, we are all subsequent immigrants or the descendents of immigrants. Our ancestors spoke and wrote funny too at one time or another.
