A thought crossed my mind today, well reading a reply to my first post on this website, "What kind of Character am I going to find in Podiatry Students." You see in undergrad I witnessed both admirable (kind, humble, not self seeking) and unadmirable students. But it turns out that almost every admirable student I know got into MD/DO School. So where did the self centered people go? I really never cared, until I started looking into Podiatry. Realizing that podiatry is a huge back up plan for medical students, there is a strong possibility that this is where they went. After asking about Scholl, I received this reply, "I really don't think anyone can or should help you here. Apply somewhere else if you can't think of good reasons to attend Scholl. It's called research...you should try it out sometime." And it dawned on me, perhaps podiatry is where a lot of the pre-med gerks went. I know it is wrong to assume this from a forum where internet bullies abound, but it brought a sincere worry in my mind about podiatry. I assume I will get many negative remarks to this post, but to the few that actually know what I am getting at, please provide your feedback. I just want to make sure that podiatry school provides a positive working environment.
