Germanic languages (German, Swedish) may also be very easy to learn due to the similarities with English. If I was in your position I'd go for a germanic language or possibly french. Wow thanks for the response. Honestly I do really want to learn arabic but I just don't have the time atm to get my head around it. It's my goal this summer to spend some time each day working on it. German seems like a really cool language (I love the long words for some odd reason). Is there any reaso...

Do you think med schools will think Im trying to become a doctor for money if I list trading stocks as a hobby as Ive been day trading since I was 18 and spend a lot of time with it? It helps me pay for my expenses as well. Will it look bad I did this instead of work a job?
Do you guys ever get pissed off when people in the general public do not really know what we do and our training to get to where we are? Little do they know we can transition from being primary care to emergency room to critical care doctors in a blink of an eye. What do you guys say to the misinformed that think all we did is push some medications into an IV and then wake someone back up?

Hey everyone, Hope you're all staying safe during this pandemic. I am a medical student who was supposed to graduate this month but the graduation got delayed for 2 months. Staying home during this pandemic allowed me to think and reevaluate my decisions. This lead me to road block when I wanted to choose a specialty. I've always wanted pediatrics. After my pediatrics rotation I started to enjoy other rotations even less. However, I also enjoyed the pediatric surgery rotation. Dealing with... Choosing A Specialty That Fits
