Original Article: Why You Might Want to Wait to Apply to Medschool
Your Med School Application is Too Important to Rush
Listener Hanna wrote in to ask an important question: is it better to apply this year despite possibly ending up in the second tier of applicants due to a late MCAT score, or should she just wait until next year? Good question, Hannah! Aline Sandouk, Irisa Mahaparn, Tony Rosenberg, and admissions counselor Dan Schnall (in absentia) have the answer.
Another listener, Amari (and we hope we’ve spelled that right), phoned in to the Short Coats Hotline to find out if there is a medical school equivalent to the infamous Freshman 15 many undergrads suffer through, and if so, what she could do about it when she starts her journey in medical education.
Med students aren’t, in general, known for being good liars; they tend to be a pretty ethical bunch. But perhaps they suspend their morality enough to fool each other with lies about their time in medical school. We’ll see about that, as they play Two Truths and a Lie.
We’re still giving away keyfobs if you post a review somewhere and send a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ve begun collecting recipes for our future Recipes for Med School Success cookbook.
