    why does bitterness = Hungary

    Advertisements



    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).

    Actually, gawtti, MikeMolder wrote a very well presented argument in support of Hungarian medical schools (citing his personal experiences at SOTE as example) and to refute the exaggerated bias against them by the so-called slackers & losers.
    I read the beautiful piece. I'm stunned to realise that he deleted it now.

    I wanted to reply but I had no time to 'cuz I was reading for my exams. But it's over now.
    I think it'll be wise to put it back. The main aim here is to give prospective students as many varied opinions as possible to help them make an informed decision when choosing to study in any Hungarian medical school.
    Both pros & cons, negative and positive comments and/or experiences are welcome. These helped me a lot before coming here (and I still use some of the pieces of advice I got here in my life in DOTE).
    On a lighter note though, did you get your screen name from Fox Mulder of the X-Files? Gooooooooooosh, I love that show!

    Yes, Actually it is after the X files but that was long ago. I just kept the name because of my own little tradition whenever I make a name online I guess.

    Ok, good to know. lol. Fox Mulder was very intelligent. He & Agent Scully were a terrific team! You should get the X-Files Reopened DVD if you don't have. It's a compilation of the best episodes while the show aired. I later found the show boring though. Especially when Mulder got missing and they had to substitute him with Agent Doggett & that alien conspiracy started. pooh pooh! Why do aliens ALWAYS land in USA & not other parts of the world?
    I watch Dexter now, America's favourite serial killer. lol

    I also obsevered that you brought back your post, better edited and better presented. Thanks.
    I wish to contribute but I'm just in the 1st year. So I barely have as much experience as you do. But as the discussion gathers momentum (sorry, too much Biophysics..lol), I'll chip in where appropriate. Don't worry, this is the time when people come here to vent their anger. Trust me, you'll get responses in no time!
    And oh, I wish your wife a safe delivery. Do me a favour...if it's a girl name her Dana Scully. If a boy, Fox Mulder...lol.
    Of course, I was just kidding!

    Hi there MikeMolder, your initial post is very sincere filled with very useful information.

    In order to help possible newcomers to get a more accurate picture of the university you are studying in, can you tell me how many students were in your class when you started your studies and how many students are now that you are in the 3rd year? Give some detailed numbers if you can.

    Also, did you need any lessons other than the university offered, like private lessons or lessons taken with a group of other students under a paid instructor?

    Your response to my post will be highly appreciated.

    I just realized this...your name is "avoid hungary", why on earth would you choose such a horrible name...please change it as many people may be offended by it. I am surprized the people running this site would let you choose such a hateful name
