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.

I think under stories you have to include @HomeSkool 's travel escapades:
Interviews: A Comedy of Errors

If only as a PSA for everyone to avoid flying with anyone who might be him :laugh:

There's a couple of lead ins and other travel stories above and below, but I think that was the main fiasco

HI- As an M2 who has been attending classes online since last spring and never having had the opportunity to work on a cadaver, I am finding anatomy very difficult. Can you recommend any resources to help learn anatomy in this difficult environment? And for Step 1, how much anatomy is typically included?thanks for any advice
