Law students, med students, oh my!

Wednesday night was the annual Medmal Mixer, the annual event where law students and med students get together and mix as well as middle schoolers at a 6th grade dance. You'd think that throwing together a bunch of young people, lots of beer, and a DJ would lead to some pretty crazy stories, but it doesn't. It can be summed up as a night starting with a guarded sense of optimism that always ends up in expected disappointment. This year was no different. It begins with the grade school freeze-out (law students one area, med students the other), followed by the awkward attempts at mixing, and ending with the inevitable conclusion that med students just don't know how to have fun (except of course, for Nye's wife).

So why do we do it every year? Easy, we're hoping the nurses show up, just once. The nursing students are like the guy or girl that you've always had a crush on, so you invite them to any social event you have, knowing full well that their response of "oh yeah, that would be fun, I'll see if I can make it," really means "I don't know why you think you can talk to me, but please don't make this mistake again." Hurts so good.

Without the nurses (read as - people who actually know how to have fun), the MedMal will continue to be a night where a bunch of law students drink with a bunch of people who know that we can end their respective careers with one good malpractice case. That, my friends, is a recipe for one wicked party.

med students are the most intelligent... nurses or prolly the hottest... law school chicks are the ugliest (this is obvious)... however, lawyers will make the most $$$

Why do I think this was written by a med student? Oh, you crazy, crazy med students. Think you know everything. Just wait until you get out into the real world, friend.

God save us if this is a med student. I would sincerely hope that any med student would know "prolly" is not a word. Furthermore, anyone who would confuse the words "are" and "or" is not qualified to sell hamburgers at McDonald's, let alone prescribe medicine to the masses.

that sounds like a complete disaster...our law student only functions are bad enough, i can't imagine throwing med students into the mix. i think i feel a little queasy.
