I have heard consistantly that the pace of work in med school is unimaginable. For example, a second year at one med school said that in one semester at med school she goes through as much material as she did in four years at Cornell. From the tone, I don't think she was exaggerating at all--at least not intentionally. Anyway, I would like to know from you med students how you find it possible to remember your stuff. I know you forget a lot, but you must remember something--how? I find that cramming a bunch of facts usually leads to remembering almost none of them. I understand that a lot of the memorizing comes from application of the principles, but it doesn't seem like you can do that for all (or even most) of the material. I just can't imagine there being enough time. Please enlighten me. thanks.
