  1. I used to be pretty laid back. Sometimes not so much these days, I wish I could get some of my old personality back.

    What is your LOC Thread

    Interest still accumulates.

    New Site Layout

    It's actually the same as your signature from the old forum, just not visible on posts for some reason. The real matter of trust is to not have people change it to something silly in the meantime.

    New Site Layout

    The weirdest thing about the new forum is that I can see/edit other people's signatures in their profiles, but I can't see my own.
  7. It may sound odd but because translators are often readily available, at least in major centers, the most useful languages to know in medicine would actually be the more obscure ones for which they might be trickier to find a qualified translator.
  8. Just wanted to get some clarification here, I keep seeing people post about prime -0.25% or prime -0.5% but then saw someone say that after they sign up for this the interest rate can go up past prime at a later time. What's your take on this? I'm also leaving this open to other bank representatives obviously since we're not favoring one over the other, just favoring the particular deals they might offer. Oh also what's the deal with these free speakers? Are they worth $20 or $250, and more importantly am I still eligible for them?

    Failed Cfpc?

    I really hope this is true 'cause I'm in that boat and I'd love to only have to redo one half of the exam.
  10. Took me 3 tries. I have no shame about that and neither should anyone else that had to try even more times.

    How To Stay Motivated In The Face Of Rejections

    Congratulations on your acceptance! It's good to see that I'm not the only one that sometimes replies to threads after reading only the first post.
  12. You can't do much with just a bachelor degree right now. It does qualify you for some jobs in research like in a lab or some fieldwork but you can't work your way up through the ranks as it were without getting a more advanced degree. I'll echo what cookiemonster said and add that you should spend at least some more amount of time studying than you did in high school. You don't want to be one of the students that calls themselves a premed and gets C's on all their first term courses. Actually more likely would be doing ok in most courses but then really screwing up one of your prerequisite classes. There was probably a 50% withdrawal rate in our first term chemistry class after our first midterm.

    Why Bother With Extracurriculars?

    ECs will be pretty important to maintain while in medicine, just for your own sanity.
