Today, I'm neck-deep in debt paying for med school. What's worse, the professors here are so terrible that even the morons on Yahoo Answers are 100 times better at explaining my coursework to me. FML

To be fair, there are a lot of morons on Yahoo Answers. So it is rather surprising that OP is finding it a better resource than the professors that are getting paid for it. I don't think OP is calling the people that actually helped him morons, just the average IQ of that website.

Sadly, this is the case with medical schools in most countries. Top doctors always make more money working in a hospital than teaching, and usually it is what they prefer to do. The richest universities get the best professors and thus the non-elite universities have to settle for what they can get.

It's extremely difficult to transfer medical schools. Outside of very extenuating circumstances (eg. family issues, health concerns), most places won't even consider it.

Excuse me? Texas is home to some of the best universities, such as UT. While I understand that this is medical school, there is nothing wrong with the higher education system in Texas.

Unless, OP is the moron and he's calling other people morons because he doesn't understand. I think he needs to go to the teachers and ASK for help or a more thorough explanation since he obviously doesn't understand

Actually #15, here in CA you don't have to pay anything back unless you drop out of school or drop classes and have less than 10% of your original credits left. Last semester I had 14 credits all together but had to drop a 3 credit class, bringing it down to 11 credits, 10% of 14 is around 1.5 credits. I had well over that so I didn't have to pay anything back.

Where you get the information is irrelevant. As long as it's correct and helps you understand it's what matters. Boards weed out those who don't know their stuff so there's no need to worry about trusting a person like that or not. Only those with the knowledge become licensed. Still, even doctors who went to good schools and etc make terrible mistakes and bad physicians.
