    Looking for a student?

    Advertisements



    Hey I'm looking for a student who is/may was going to AUC. From what I know of said student he is a 1st termer and walked into class one day after blowing 4G's at the casino and ws drinking a beer. At the same time during the class he had dropped a 500 dollar poker chip and it rolled towards the front of the class and he proceded during the lecture to walk to the front of the class to pick it up.

    I'm not really sure how to respond to this because I know pretty much every detail of what happened to this poor kid over a 2 day period. It's information that should not be made public on this forum. Most of the 1st termers have a vague idea of what happened, but a few including myself know pretty much every detail and it includes way more than the situation in biochem and gambling away his money. It's a very sad story and not something to laugh at.

    stress

    stress can do weird things to people... sounds like an acute hypomanic (vs manic) episode related to a mood disorder - or maybe substance abuse (v. dep) related. either way, as unfortunate as some events like this are -- as med students, it's important to know how to take care of yourself. if you don't do it now, it only grows later by the day.

    You know I only asked because he was my roommate last term at a different medical school before he was dismissed soon after arriving. I doubt it was stress related as the student was acting like such prior to even the begining of classes. and while when he was at my school and was dismissed I may have felt a little compassion due to the his behavior but hearing about this through the grapevine I'm regretful that I ever felt any compassion for the individual.

    I don't know if words can describe how disgusted I was with this individual, in fact I had students who didn't know me offering to turn their double into a triple if I ever needed to get away from this kid.

    Yes he has problems and I might have felt something for him had I learned that he had sought treatment and then made a return to the profession rather than attempt to make an immeiadte return. I feel sympathy for any of you who have to deal with him.

    If you want a more detailed accounting of what happened check out my blog here

    So according to Flounders if this is the same guy, this was no freak-out then. Yes, we've had people freak out before in first semester (If you freak out in first semester, I'd hate to see what happens in third).

    It should tell you something about the kid that I would fear for my life if I posted something about the situation and he found out who I was.
