  1. Yes, she will be a star and achieve far more money and glory than as a doctor.

    How about the Rachel Green character when she was in the same school as Monica Geller (from Friends the TV show)?

    Hots subjective and while I am not a fan of her behavior; just because I don't like her doesn't mean she doesn't look good (generally Indians do b/c of bone structure...not sure where she gets her nose from, but as a girl with a "cute" nose I ain't judgin').


    Heyheyhey

    There could be doctors up in here; or students studying for their MCAT. When I had hard core classes I would need a brain break and do something stupid like watch spongebob square pants. This could be their spongebob square pants.

    I guess that depends on how you measure a person. If you measure a person by their academic credentials, that's true. If you measure a person by their wallet, that may or may not be true depending on how much damage she's done to her medical career and how much debt she took on to get her MD.

    I prefer to measure a person by their character. By that measure, I'd say she's well in the back of the pack. I'd rather hang out with a cool homeless guy than a fabulously rich, pampered, spoiled entitled brat who rarely hears the word "no" and never got her hands dirty in her life, every day of the week.

    Medical doctor friends told me, almost with no exceptions, looking back, of all the classes they have ever taken, the hardest one was Anatomy. Some of them while enterprising pre-med students, even went to the trouble of taking the class at another college and transfer it back to their eventual alma mater to avoid dinging their pre-med graduation GPAs (colleges typically do not include grades from transferred credits in GPA computations).

    MDs choose different ways of relaxing. Some enjoy fast cars. Many devote their free time to collecting (art work, rare coins, all things James Bond, clothing and other material possessions). A lot like to travel. A large proportion find solace in their spouse and children. Disproportionately low percentage (when compared to people of other academic backgrounds with far less rigor in their program) choose to get high or get wasted.

    One young doctor friend is a rare exception-- he told me whenever he feels life is too boring or stressful, he picks up the biggest Anatomy textbook that he used back in college, flips thru a few minutes to gain perspective. After that, he says, any sane thing he does seems so much fun, enjoyable, and a relief.

    Ugh, lol, don't remind me...

    I had anatomy and the memorization wasn't hard. The smell in the lab...diff story. I actually prefer microbio and o chem over that wretched smell. Surprisingly seeing it without some limbs and sliced open--and how fat inside--hasn't deterred me from eating junk. Or being grossed out.

    The smell of preserving?

    :/

    But I meant relaxing when studying. :)

    Sounds like you were in pre-med. A long shot here (this is what quite a number of my non-doctor Asian friends did, one Taiwanese classmate of mine took her MCAT twice and applied for med schools for two years before switching to what she really loved) -- My guess is you did pre-med and took MCAT once upon parents' urging before switching to another career path that you really loved?

    P/S: Your apparent natural gift in memory is definitely a huge plus in classes such as Anatomy. Our society and educational system encourage creativity and discourage rote learning (which, overall, has brought a trendies global competitiveness to our national economy -- look at American supremacy and global leadership in entertainment--movies, television, music, the arts, and technology, software, aerospace, genetics, biotech, pharmaceuticals, strategic business consulting, political consulting -- our consultants just helped elect the British and Israeli Prime Ministers, etc.). The by product of that educational system is, people who received their elementary or secondary education overseas but their tertiary education here, as well as those born here but into families with parents from another country who still exert some sway over them in edu and career choices, tend to be highly disproportionately represented in fields like medicine and science and technology. And also the reasons why, while ethnic minorities comprise a disproportionately large percentage of techies in Silicon Valley, studies still found the enterprising CEOs and creative founders of the largest and most successful tech companies are largely disproportionately White.

    Nah, I took those classes for nursing. Before I graduated from hs, I got stage 1 of a common cancer. I had to stay in a hospital on and off (one week live, two weeks at home, repeat) for six months and my life took a diff course.

    I had planned to do something in the arts. But afterwards, and having observed doctors and nurses...I got to see the nurses more then the docs obv. Don't get me wrong, the doc was awesome. He had md, masters and was going back to get his Ph.D. while working so he do more clinicals--but it was the nurses who really helped. Plus they let me know they work 3-4, 12 hr shifts.

    I got into the program, same time I was working at a doc office that specializes in oncology. Long story short, emotionally it's not for me. Too hard to not get feelings, and being in the medical field those folks have to be caring and at the same time unfeeling. My friend is kind of...made that way through working in trama care and she's OK with it. Like before, she would cry at funerals, but after, when her gramps died, she just didn't. Doesn't feel quite the same when folks die everyday in your line of work.

    so I found my passion is in helping people, because despite my meager means, I'm still very blessed. But I'm still going back to school because I can't quite shake the bug of wanting to design and art.

    Not excusing that chick. But doctors are suppose to be strong, while showing compassion...and that's harder then you think. I know that if you can't handle it, you should do something else...but at the same time, mistakes happen. Aftermath it just seems like she hasn't learned anything, which is the sad part imho.

    The sad thing is, more and more, HS students choose medicine for the money, rather than for a noble calling.

    P/S: Hope you are feeling alright now.

    Is Ms. Ram or kiss me soon of Indian descent? Most passengers of this ethnicity are steeped in the caste system that exist in their country. Rarely does a passenger of Indian descent not treat me like I was their scumbag servant, which I am. Such treatment would be easier to swallow if a little more deodorant was sprinkled in with it. I almost always have to go full open window/febreeze after such rides. This woman can go straight to hell as far as I am concerned. If you are sober enough to walk and use your phone to summon an uber then there is no excuse for such behavior. If you are going to live here, make a little more effort to assimilate. I could care less what you do for a living. Ms. Ramkissoon you have disgraced your family.

    She didn't hail the cab with her rider's app. She was trying to steal the ride from another rider(s) who had summoned that particular Uber driver.

    She'll probably end up doing porn now that her medical career is over.

    Who in their right mind would let this psychopath anywhere near a defenseless person(patient).

    She's completely untrustworthy.

    Normally I wouldn't comment on someone's looks either but she really has a landing pad on that nose of hers.

    That guy is a real weasel. I woulda immediately physically restrained her til the cops got there and definitely would not have allowed her to throw me a few bucks to let her walk.

    Not sure the technical legalities but I would think you should only mace in self defense. Not saying you're wrong.

    Uh, you didn't see a case for self-defense here when, say, she tries to punch him in the face or knee him in the marble pouch?

    I don't which one is worse--driver's famiky jewel got crushed by attacker's knee, or passenger's face got disfigured by mace.

    Very interesting. When I saw her outburst, I couldn't believe it was a one off. It seemed too instinctive. As though these things were rattling around in her psyche ready to pour out. And her apology included an admonition to others to watch their step because they could be video taped?! Nothing about acting like a human person because otherwise it might be hurtful to other human persons. Something is sadly wrong here.
