    may I first suggest to let your son live his own life and not baby him to a point where he is a perpetual momma's boy that no amount of psychotherapy can adequately compensate for. Then again, it's probably too late...

    He should be the one asking the questions, not you. If there is any "hint" of mommy being involved, he can kiss his chances good-bye. Medical school is graduate/professional level and parents should be supporters, not facilitators.

    Oh please. I am am paying his applications fees for about 11 schools, so I have a vested interest and some curiousity. I suggest that you worry about yourself and not about my relationship with my son...but hey, thank you for your concern.

    And based upon your attitudes (plural) I can already tell that his maturity level is much higher than either one of yours. He doesn't feel the need to blog on boards to get a heads up on various issues. He's never set foot on this site and would never. I just found this board and some posts are interesting.

    Vested interest? Are you serious? How about, I just want my son to be happy and successful? If you insist on doing his work for him, you will most definitely thwart his efforts in medical school. Medical school is stressful enough on its own. If you have external stressors including the need to please your parents/spouse/etc, it will be your undoing in the end. You may think you are being helpful but if you think that your son can't figure out this stuff on his own, or at least how to get the information HE decides he needs, then he has no business being in medical school and having the LIFE of some patient in hands 4 years from now.

    How about this, he can expect the same types of questions that you would get at any job interview. What are your strengths and weakness? Tell me more about your experience with . . . ? Are there any weaknesses in his application that need further explanation? Just as a hint, if they actually ask for weaknesses, you should really come up with a strength and that way things are always kept in the positive light.

    Wow... you have issues.

    My son is a dedicated, caring individual who will be a fantastic doctor. you on the other hand? I wonder. Please stop responding to this post and making more of it than necessary. Take a valium.

    It's great and all that you are helping your son whilst trying to stay in the loop of med school information. However, he should ALSO be reading the forums himself, unless he's too snooty. Honestly, if he's going to a caribbean school, arrogance (not confidence) should be thrown out of the window.

    And one last thing, being PREPARED is a sign of MATURITY.

    Lol... after reading your responses, it is pretty obvious who has the "issues". Your son, judging from this statement, could care less about medical school. Stop pushing the poor kid into something he has no interest in. Then again, with his mother issues, he probably would go along with it just to get out of the house and stop the nagging! in any case, I wish you luck on your quest (I mean your son's quest). She_doc was just pointing out the blatant truth. It doesnt take a psychiatrist to read between your lines. The truth hurts huh.
