lol You bought up an interesting point. I only frequent the pharmacy boards, and once in a while, other boards like this one. I am only accustomed to the posters in pharmacy and sometimes forget that there are other people here too.
I wouldn't say that they are completely unbearable in pre-allo, it's just that you get overblown egos with the power of anonymity on the internet...not a good mix haha. Though I must agree, almost all of the other forums on SDN are much nicer
Yea, a lot are bearable, but there are a few (I won't name them, you get the point) that are just through the roof with ego. I dunno, some of them make me nervous when they talk about bad things they've done to get ahead of classmates, and how people are lying if they say they've never lied or cheated in college (as part of getting ahead), but I haven't. For one, they're aren't enough pre-meds at my school that you'll actually notice them and for another, I just don't care about sabotaging people. I'm mostly focused on myself, ya know what I mean?
So true! I think it's mostly because many of us here have to go through special circumstances to be who we really want to be..I feel like others just haven't had experiences to really help the connection.
