Very nice compilation!

I think it'd be good to include a guide on how to choose a study pathway --- lecture-based vs. PBL. This is one of the most important decisions a student has to make before matriculating (if the school offers both pathways).

I dont think mimelim is talking about research efficiency in that post. Rather is talking about the nuance of quality of research and importance of knowing your research when interviewing for residency.
