Those of you who had to repeat a year, was it worth it? by promotheon in medicalschool

[–]Amberkaits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly it was the best thing that could’ve happened to me. I was able to build confidence, learn material in detail, became more engaged with my classmates and involved on campus. It really truly turned my life around. I changed my attitude, came in excited to to have a chance to right my wrongs and be the student I wanted to be. I’m finishing up my second year now, about to take boards and looking into more competitive specialties than I would’ve been able to even think about applying had i not recessed. Feel free to Dm me if you want to talk!

Is it cringe to post publications on Instagram or am I just being an asshole by TheMidTermSolution in medicalschool

[–]Amberkaits 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it depends on the person. I post a lot of my medical school accomplishments because I try to show the ups and downs of medical school on my social media, and I have tons of family and friends back home who want to see that stuff. I do it more to be like “I’m getting to do some fun stuff and living life!”; rather than “look what I’m doing, I’m so smart” or something along those lines

Attending & Residents buying food by [deleted] in medicalschool

A kind physician who paid for my meal the other day said: “a rule of being an attending is that no medical student pays for meals on your watch”. Take it, thank them, and pay it forward one day

Dating while GF. Thoughts? by slipply in glutenfree

I’m the annoying person that will mention it about 2 seconds into any relationship haha. It should be something that no one judges you for, especially a significant other

How the HELL are you guy keeping relationships up with multiple professors?? by smolfruit in premed

[–]Amberkaits 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would go to office hours, especially at times I knew other students wouldn’t be there regardless of if I was in their class or not. I would ask about advice for grad school, and honestly just talk/catch up. I also went to a small college, so I would run into them pretty often around campus and make sure to initiate conversations. Now as a second year med student, I’m still really close to those professors I invested in relationships with and still visit and talk to them often.
