Med School is a Little Like High School

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

So, as promised my next blog is about med school.

Med school is actually a lot like high school, you don't notice it at first, but if you are separated from it for a little amount of time (like the holidays where you go back home) looking back at it, it's a lot different than undergrad and a lot like high school.

You have the group of popular beautiful people, various other cliques, the few people that nobody really knows and who just go in/out of classes and all the wonderous associated drama that happens.

Really, in undergrad, I had kind of gotten used to being away from this whole high school social thing. My classes were always huge, and my program didn't have my entire schedule set out for me, so really, the people in my classes differed all the time. I would rarely even sit next to the same person. I had close friends I met along the way in undergrad and I would hang out with them, but really there was no popularity contests or social stresses inside school itself.

Yes, yes it is. The social dynamic is very similar, but at least the persons involved are of a generally higher maturity level.
