OK, here's my explanation. I'll let JC tell it... he does it better than anyone else.

Exactly. You can't speak for yourself because you are an idiot.

... I had the same type of projects as the post-doctoral fellow that worked in my lab. I would also do up to 12 hours straight on the weekends. I am publishing a paper this summer. ... Sorry, but some professors give undergrads the "real deal". I also gave oral presentations at national meetings which is what doctoral and post-doctoral fellows do.

Sounds like a research hipster to me...or maybe a PhD wannabe poser?

You need to open your view further. I had the same type of projects as the post-doctoral fellow that worked in my lab. I would also do up to 12 hours straight on the weekends. I am publishing a paper this summer. The difference comes from the professor you work with. A majority of the professors give undergrads "practice projects". Sorry, but some professors give undergrads the "real deal". I also gave oral presentations at national meetings which is what doctoral and post-doctoral fellows do.

Haha, you're not even published? Shut your piehole then.

Just national? I presented my undergrad research findings in Europe. Over half of the undergrads in my lab published, and we all went to regional & national conferences. You must really suck.

Oh ya, my brother published his undergrad research as well.....so proud of him :)

Can you provide me with a link conference website that shows your name and the name of your project and the link to the publications you mentioned? Also, poster presentations are not the same as oral presentations.

So what brings you to the pharmacy forums? Are you interested in pharmacy?

Give it up, dude. You've accomplished nothing with this thread aside from pissing people off and getting your ass whooped. Stop now and just let this thread die before you embarrass yourself any further.

I can't see how I have been "whooped" "dude".

Yes, but I likely won't because I'd rather not give up my identity to someone I so fervently abhor. You provide me your link, and I will consider providing mine. This thread was started for your self-aggrandizement, which is fine, but everything you are bragging about is laughably mediocre! That much, I can absolutely promise you...when I did my undergrad thesis, >75% of the Honors students presented at some type of conference, and at least 25% presented at reputable national conferences. As I previously stated, in all the years I was in the lab (i.e. 4), I saw many undergraduate thesis students come and go, including the batch that were with me. Easily over half have published and the accomplishments you are disclosing pale in comparison.

Also, poster presentations are not the same as oral presentations.
It was an oral presentation in front of the pioneers of the field. Where did I say it was a poster presentation? If you are this assumptive in your research, then its quality may be even poorer than the quality of this already lousy thread, which is surprising, frankly.

Oh, from the mouth of babes. I need to open my view further? I've been in research labs (several different ones, mind you) for almost ten years now. My husband has been in labs even longer. We've published papers, we've given presentations, and all that stuff. Whether you give an oral presentation or not at a national meeting depends on the size of the meeting and the size of the field. It does not necessarily depend on the quality of the presenter's research.

Whether or not the professor gives you the "real deal" or not, undergrad research is just not as intense as grad school. In grad school, you have the project much longer, it's a full-time job, your career depends on the results, and you learn a lot in the years while you're there. At the same point, most post-docs have more experience and can be more independent in their research than most grad students.

Pharmacy students are no less or no more intelligent or talented than PhD students. It's a range in both fields.

I agree with IrishHammer; quit embarassing yourself and acting like you know more than everyone here. If we don't know everything, you certainly don't. You may be slightly more advanced in research than others in a beginning grad program, but I doubt you could compete well with those who had jobs as techs for several years. Experience does count for something.

I would like to apologize. I believe that this thread and forum should not be taken so seriously and that we should not get so angry. Many of us are professionals or aspiring professionals. I am sad to see that so many people are lashing out due to an internet thread.

Don't worry, this forum is not taken seriously, especially by the practicing pharmacists and residents. They don't have much value to gain from the forum, so one might think their reason for being here would be to contribute in a meaningful way for the benefit of future colleagues, right? Wrong. Many of them are the very ones who hijack threads, patronize new posters, use heavy-handed sarcasm in most posts, and actively spread false information.

I applaud you for being so concerned about professionalism (because Lord knows I am not), but starting a thread about how the entire forum and career is beneath you isn't professional. One might expect that if they condescendingly 'lash out' out against the entire forum and profession, they will get the same in return.
