One of the most important decisions you will make in your first year of med school is who you pick for your anatomy lab group. I recommend including the following people:
1) Yourself: You must be a part of your own lab group. While this might be the person you’d most like to avoid, this one is pretty much a given. Sorry.
2) A funny person: While I’d recommend a person who is funny as in hilarious, any kind of funny is all right, such as funny looking or funny talking. Even funny as in strange can be okay, as long as they provide you with some kind of entertainment to break up the interminable hours of anatomy lab.
3) A hot person: Much like the Sirens in the Odyssey, a hot person will lure the professors and TAs to your table and get you out of lab much faster. Also, when you inevitably get drunk and bang your anatomy partner, at least you’ll have banged someone hot.
4) A smart person: You need someone to actually do the dissection, right? Anyone with glasses will probably do.
People you want to avoid having in your lab group:
--Anyone who uses the phrase “I’m not here to make friends.”
--Anyone who smells worse than your cadaver.
--Anyone who refuses to give the cadaver a hilarious nickname.
