re: Calling MD's/Med Students - Patron Saint
Algorithm is supposedly just that you go to your highest ranked program as long as you are ranked high enough by them. You can't go to your 2nd ranked program if you're ranked high enough to match by your 1st program. ...

[quote]And rightfully so. Do you really need to be the top of your class to be a dermatologist? No. People go into it because of the lifestyle and paycheck. IM doctors have a tough job and I'd be happier knowing my IM doc was AOA over my Dermatologist. [/quote] I don't disagree with you at all. ...

re: Calling MD's/Med Students - Patron Saint
[quote]Correct. IM has the most people who were AOA and 250+ on Step 1 among its ranks. [/quote] That number could be a little skewed because they probably have the most residents. As a percentage, it's probably something like derm or ortho or some other super competitive field. But some of the ...

[quote]If you are a good test taker you will do fine. Some people are just shitty test takers. [/quote] Even if you're a good test taker, it takes a lot of preparation to do really well. A good test taker with a solid foundation can probably pass the test on the first try with no additional stud...

re: Calling MD's/Med Students - Patron Saint
[quote]So as a nurse I gather from this thread that IM and Psych are the shite programs and fields to be in? [/quote] It's an over generalization but primary care fields have more spots nationally so a shitty program is easier to get into. There are still good programs, and some incredibly smart p...

[quote]Doing some reading on the USMLE. Holy shite that sounds brutal. [/quote] It is probably the hardest test in American education. Eight hours of pure misery and you have to basically speed read the entire test to have a chance of finishing each section on time. That's not to mention the ridi...

re: Calling MD's/Med Students - Patron Saint
She needs to seriously evaluate her study methods. First, she needs to be dedicating the time to studying for Step 1. If she isn't studying at least 8 hours a day for 6 weeks (probably longer since she failed twice), then she's not spending enough time studying. The USMLE Step 1 exam contains a mass...

re: Streets of New Orleans overrun by wholesome-looking Midwestern teens - Patron Saint
Just FYI the Lutheran church is split into a bunch of different subdenominations. The two biggest are the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). In 2009 and 2012 the ELCA Youth Gathering was in New Orleans (it was in Detroit in 2015). This curren...

[quote]Colorado should lose their delegate votes and pay back the money spent to send them to the convention paid by taxes[/quote] As stated previously, they don't use taxpayer dollars.
