Overheard on the Road: McGill

Girl #1: So these bitches come up to me and they're all like, "Can I borrow your notes for [psych] class? And I'm all like, "No, fuck you, do your own work". I hate those lazy bitches.
Girl #2: Yeah, totally.
Girl #1: Oh, I had my [history] exam the other day... I didn't take any notes or read any of the assignments... I didn't study, either. But I'm not worried - I got assigned seat A-1 for the exam.
Girl #2: That's totally a good sign. You'll get an "A" for sure.

True enough, why anyone would spend thousands of dollars on such a degree is beyond me. Maybe if tuition was $0 those degrees would make more sense.

12:04. You seem reasonable. Thus I will give you a serious answer.

It is true that taking on a metric tonne of debt to get an Ivey degree may seem like madness. But most students do it with the (usually correct) assumption that they'll make substantially more money over the course of their lifetimes than if they got a regular degree. The logic is the same why many students come to university instead of going into the workforce straight from highschool. The payouts in the future outweigh the current costs.

Oh, and some Ivey students have filthy rich parents who front the entire bill, so economics doesn't come into it. These people are to the rest of Ivey what Ivey is to the rest of Western.

I meant that I didn't understand why anyone would spend money on a liberal arts degree.

hmm - well here goes.
I have a science background. I'm in med now. And I am everyday grateful that I took all of my electives in arts and social sci.
I am dealing constantly with classmates who don't understand why ethics in medicine is important. I am dealing with people who do not understand why so much attention is paid to patient dignity. Who don't understand why it's important to question things like our concept of disease, why certain people get sick and others do not, and that our textbooks are not God, that there is uncertainty in science, in research, in medicine. Four years of pharmacology did not prepare me for this. I still regret not pursuing a degree in anthropology or philosophy instead, those few courses have done more for me than all of my "marketable" ones ever could.

Thank you 3:26. I hope your med classmates read that. The type of students being turned out of our medical schools year after year are becoming increasingly insensitive. Here's to hoping that more people like you will be admitted to medical school, and that the future doctors of Canada will be open to seeing patients as people and not as a chart.

7:05 - Don't provoke the Ivey douchebags.

12:04 - Agreed.

3:26 - You fail. Not just med school, but life in general.
