junk mail

They tell you that med students will change their desired specialty many, many times. What they don't tell you is that each flirtation with a specialty brings a new realm of junk mail.

And those specialties don't care when the med student moves on to a new one. Y has gone through 3 specialties, and that's about a week's worth of medical paraphernalia. The worst offender?

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. there's a new piece of mail with a brain on it. If there are any med students out there... think long and hard before you decide to proclaim interest in neurology. Do it for the trees.
