    something to know about SMU

    Advertisements



    ...
    i read this board from time to time, and as a senior student, from the posts here, i feel like either on purpose or someone is getting paid for whatever they post.
    i have nothing but good things to say about smu, ive had an amazing experience in basic science, i worked hard, partied my *** off when i could, got a very high step score, was placed in clinicals after waiting for 2 months (this was a much needed break anyway), had most of my stuff set up back2back, on top of that the coordinators worked around my schedule and helped me set it up the way i wanted it. i've rotated with US students, sgu students and ross students, and i feel way more comfortable with what i do compared to a good 85% of them. not too long ago (except for those who are way ahead of me in terms of training). ive been told by attendings that they are impressed with my performance. so its really what you make of it, stop complaining, dont waste your time reading the bull*s*h*i*t on this board, 90% of it isnt true anyway, and get your *** to the library and study. i came to smu knowing about the cali issue, i have no interest in practicing anywhere but FL or the tristate area and thats why i chooe it. so no complaints here.
    bottom line is, go study, get the residency you want (after all, someone got DERMATOLOGY and RADIOLOGY this year....what ELSE do you want coming from a caribbean school on the absolute BEST island, 100k cheaper than ross/sgu ???) maybe you want them to pave the road for you, serve you breakfast in bed too? yes its a bumpy road, but stop complaining, close this window and do something about it.
