What's the fairest way to divvy up multiple options amongst a group?

My wife is starting a year of medical school rotations. There are 6 possible schedules for the year, and her group of 6 students must decide amongst themselves who gets which schedule. What's the fairest way to decide? It's completely up to the students, and everyone is friendly and open to discussion. [more inside]

science and art are pretty much the same thing in my eyes

Career-advise me! Fellow mefites who enjoy both the humanities and the sciences: which did you pick for your career, and why? Or: were you able to somehow combine the two? Bonus points if you have experience with the medical field. [more inside]

We need to find an apartment in Long Island. How do we do?

My partner will be attending Stony Brook University for Medical School starting this August. We need to move out of our current Brooklyn apartment at the end of June. In NYC, finding an apartment seems relatively straightforward - there's plenty in our price range on Craigslist, and we have friends and social connections to speed things up. We have no idea how to easily find an apartment in the Stony Brook or larger LI area by July 1st. Help? [more inside]

Paris, 1877. Who was the Professor?

I'm in the midst of a research project, and my subject (a first-year medical student in Paris in 1877) mentions taking "...Prof. Frény’s course at the Museum, where I got the honor to be received by him in his laboratory." The student was also taking classes at the Sorbonne at the time. Help me figure out who Prof. Frény was, and which museum is referenced. (And yes, I've already tried Google...) Merci beaucoup!

Where can I get data on avg step1 scores for medical residency programs?

I'm trying to find a list of US medical residency programs and the average step 1 scores of the applicants that are accepted into each program. Google has not been helpful. I've found match rates, quotas, test scores by specialty, and all sorts of other data. But nothing about test scores by residency program. Does anyone know if this data exists and where I can find it? Thanks in advance.

Reasons, descriptions of what it was like to drop out of medical school?

I'm writing a short story in which a character drops out of medical school in his third year. I'm wondering if anyone has any firsthand or secondhand experience with this (dropping out at any point). I've never gone to med school and I'm making this all up, but it would be great to get some real-world input.

How do I find out more about being a doctor for the CDC?

I want to work for the CDC after med school and residency, but I don't know how to show people (particularly med school adcoms) just how serious I am about this. I'm applying to med schools this cycle and want to mention my CDC aspirations, but am afraid that doing so might inadvertently hurt my application because I have no experience with the CDC.

How can I get through med school if I dislike group work?

I've just started medical school and the emphasis on group work is overwhelming me. I know that medicine is generally a team-oriented profession. I have certainly worked well in teams before, and found it enjoyable. I am affable and pulling my own weight is never an issue. Still, the fact that I have to work in a group for four hours a day, five days a week, is draining me like no other. I am angsty and tired. Please, fellow introverts and independent workers, especially those who are familiar with medical education -- how might you approach working in a heavily team-oriented environment? Details inside.

Us: med students, our OB-GYN attending: blatantly misogynist...

...and it's affecting our learning environment. Basically it's not one big thing, rather an endless pattern of small things that make it fairly unpleasant to be a female student. Only calling on male classmates in rounds/lectures, only learning the names of male students and using inappropriate nicknames for female students, making comments about female bodies (that are irrelevant to the teaching or practice of medicine), etc. He is a highly respected physician and academic, and my assumption is that the school administration will not be particularly understanding or receptive to complaints (although we have not tried this route yet). We would rather not confront him directly about this situation. What to do? (More examples inside) [more inside]
