Competition at NU works against you unless being cutthroat in a future job environment is a desirable trait.. Unless they're your friends, people are generally apprehensive to help you. You need to form a network whether it be a frat or sorority or kids of your ethnic background so you can tap into a database of old tests etc. so people don't have an edge on you and raise the curve w/out you saying wtf, how are people doing so well? - A: bc they are crazy serious about rocking their grades and screwing you or anyone in their/my paths.
questionBut, overall would you say the pre-med program at NU is pretty good? how large is it at NU, in terms of the number of students and importance to the school? and, is the competition really that bad? sorry for all the questions!
responseI'm not the OP but i was in orgo and thought it was kinda easy? i transferred from U of C tho. my impression of NU was that everyone there was competent and there were a lower population of flaming arseholes than you meet other places.
