So which school has the most over achieving backstabbing punks?!
Don't say that Competition is the mother of excellence... and the best way to deal with competition is to face it! Who knows, maybe people will be saying the same thing about you being competitivegrinningrice said:Two types of people scare me in life, people with big eyes, and competitive people. I really hope where I go is not too competitive.
CU is known for their spec. rate. And our incoming stats are impressive. But various students there said that the competition isn't fierce as one would expect since even the mid-rank kids have a decent shot at spec. coming out of CU.dentist_to_be? said:Ive heard Columbia
Yes, Columbia is notorious for being extremely cutthroat. My father went to school there and it has beeen a problem since before his time. In recent years, they switched to Honors/Pass/Fail in hopes to improve the atmosphere a bit. I've been told by current students that this helped some, but now there is competition for Honors grades. The students are successful in getting in to specialty programs, but it comes at a cost.dentist_to_be? said:Ive heard Columbia

I like sharing notes, especially with those with enough fotitude to decipher my execrable handwriting .Irene010 said:I hope the class up at UMDNJ will be nice and chill and laid-back...otherwise we might all go off the deep end in the next 4 years...
It's all about the proper pacing (and knowing when to REALLY kick it into gear).toofache32 said:The key is longevity. You basically have to keep making good grades while other people slip up.
Then they aren't very good leaders... If by "leader" you mean the antisocial, arrogant twit who everyone hates, who's only postive attribute is that he has the highest gpa, then fine - your statement holds. But any real leader has to at least pretend to listen attentively to those he's leading. (Well, that or get a really, really good PR guy, I guess )dentite001 said:
That is one of the worst descriptions of a leader I have ever heard. In my oppinion that is the antithesis of a good leader. I hope my future dental class will have individuals who don't push others out of their way to the top, but will help pull others up with them.dentite001 said:
