Original Article: The Secondary Application: Bragging vs. Confidence
How can you brag about yourself without bragging about yourself?
We are taught from a young age (most of us, anyway) not to brag. It is better, we may sometimes hear, to show confidence. Listener Rachel wrote in with a question about the secondary application: how does one confidently talk themselves up without coming across as a braggart? Lucky for Rachel, we have Daniel Schnall from our admissions staff on hand to help Mark Moubarek, Kylie Miller, Aline Sandouk, and Gabe Conley with some great advice about how to sell yourself on your application and also back it up. Don’t want to look like a chump? Dan has your answer, Rachel.
Kylie had an excellent idea: med students are pressed for time, and nutrition can be one of those things they deep six in favor of studying. Her thought: let’s make a cookbook for Med Student Success, and listeners can contribute! Do you have a favorite recipe you use to keep your Kreb’s cycle in tip top shape? Then submit the recipe so we all can benefit! Comfort food, speedy prep, healthy living, or whatever, we want to hear about it! We’ll publish the results in some fashion, and everyone who contributes will get a free copy!
Plus, the group plays Doctor Forehead. Do you know the terms and concepts Dave found in the news last week, and why they were even being talked about?
