    why does bitterness = Hungary

    When I first wrote this thread I tried to explain why people were so bitter over their Hungarian medical school experience. I deleted that original introduction I gave. If one wants to understand why individuals are bitter over Hungary, then one should also look to why individuals are happy with Hungarian medical schools. I hate to admit this, however, very few people are in fact satisfied with their Hungarian medical school experience. Me myself have never repeated a year and I am going to my 4th year this September. I get decent grades 3, 4, and 5...I'm not the smartest, however, truth be told I never gave it my all in Hungary. This is because I focus more on nailing the USMLE then studying material that is irrelevant for the USMLE. All my friends in Hungarian medical schools hate Hungarian medical schools. Yes, we all are passing. Yes, we completed the dreadful first three years. You see, Hungarian medical schools give you a great education and an opportunity to study medicine when none of us were given the chance in our own countries. So, all of us kind of ended up there by default. Whether or not you are passing, you don't want to be there. The only difference between the bitterness of those that pass and those that fail, is that those that pass did what they needed to do to get the job done so they can get heck out of that hole in the ground we all know as Hungary. So, I guess you can say even those that pass and get great grades still are bitter over Hungary, however, they deal with their bitterness with maturity. They know that the bitterness is only for 6 years and then they can go back to start a fresh new life as doctors. We are the ants working hard, while the grass hoppers play. We are the turtles taking our time, while the hares fade away. Corny and a bit gay but true. "We" the hard working students of Hungarian medical schools are bitter. Why? ITS HUNGARY FOR PETE'S SAKE...IF YOU LIKE IT THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY FROM ANTARCTICA OR IRAN (just kidding about Iran...I got some good friends from there) . We keep the bitterness at a minimal, and sometimes talk about it as we criticize the schools faults when we are bored before class or in the Metro (subway) going to another.
    Now what about those who are posting hate blogs that are bitter for the whole world to see. Well...a simple answer to why they are so bitter is...................they failed. They need to vent so they come on the internet to do it. They can't vent like the rest of us before class, because they no longer have any more classes. They failed. They no longer have the opportunity to go back to their country and reap the sweet fruits of success, they simply have a bitter taste in their mouths. They failed. Every Hungarian medical student I know mocks the Hungarian system and everything "that is Hungary". I'm not saying that's ok, but its normal human behavior, and we all need to mature...including my self. Sometimes we forget that if we were not studying here in Hungary we would be in our home countries doing God knows what. It is also normal human behavior for a failure to be extremely bitter. But let me leave you with this final note...when "YOU" the bitter-blogger (as I like to call you), failed in your home country (by failed, I mean "failed" to get accepted into one of your home countries medical schools), did you blame the school system or your country? However, when you came to Hungary and failed here, who did you blame? I think the answer is obvious. Go become men before you decide to become doctors (and for the little girls who fail...well...your already little girls so theres not much more I can mock).

    What up G ( G = Gawti)...Just curious, but are you from the states? If so, will you be doing your 6th year there? If so, will it be in NY or CALI? If so, can you tell me the benifits of doing one's clinicals there? Sorry for all the questions, but you know how it is for us IMG, we have to go on a treasure hunt for ALL our answers (I'm sure you felt this way, being as you have studied in hungary as I have). Also do you mind telling me about your USMLE experience? I awill be taking it next year in the summer and my goal is 99 (and obviously greater). I have all the obvious books I should have like First aid, Micro Red easy, Q bank , etc. As you know here in hungary we finish all the USMLE STEP 1 stuff by third year (except for PHARM), so if one starts studying (serious studying) from the second semester of the 3rd year, should it be enough? Also any tips from you (its seems that you are a "veteran" of the hungarian system to US transfer)?

    In my opinion most of the bitterness against Hungarian Universities comes from students that donīt have intellectual capacity to learn the materials needed for the subjects and that then blame the system or teacher for their failures.

    Obviously in oral exams sometimes unfair situation can happen, but that is once not enough times for students to fail year or even a simple subject in a semester.

    Funny thing mostly students fail the year not because of the oral exams but because they cannot pass multiple choice questions examinations, normally in Biochemistry and Physiology not matter how many times they retake them.

    Thank is just my simple opinion.

    You should not get on the wrong side of the professor, they will definitely make you pay for every smug answer and dirty look.

    Yes but why would anyone get on the wrong side of the professor to begin with?
