Medical school only takes how many people a year?!

10 Things All Pre-Med Students Understand
Quotes Hunter

The one question I want to know the answer to more than anything in the world is, why do colleges make it so hard to become a doctor? All I want to do is save lives. Is that too much to ask for? "Why am I being forced to learn how to successfully shoot a rocket into space when all I want to do is explore an abdomen?" (My best friend who is also Pre-Med). Fellow pre-med students, I know you can relate. And I know you will relate to the next 15 experiences.

1. You question your decision to become a doctor every day.

Do I really want to go to school for a decade? Am I sure I don't want to be an accountant instead?

2. You're about one wrong look away from a mental breakdown at all times.

The stress in INSANE

3. You pride yourself on getting C's even though you were a straight A student in high school.

Take that calculus

4. You study at least 6 hours a day, yet never really feel prepared for your exams.

Organic chemistry... really?

5. You immediately bond with any other Pre-Med student you meet.

You hate yourself too?!

6. Wondering what the classes you are taking have anything to do with becoming a doctor.

What does inverse tangent have to do with saving lives?

7. Dissection day in Biology is basically the equivalent to Christmas morning.

Not quite as exciting as a cadaver but it'll do.

8. You are a professional kiss ass

Anything to get a few extra brownie points in.

9. When you tell people you are going to become a doctor, the assume you have it all together.


This is what makes it all worth it.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
