Hope I don't offend anyone, but at least from my experience researching pre-law and law school forums during my (now-abandoned) application attempts, I found that the population of those boards seemed to consist primarily of the most gigantic tools and gunner-types (definitely a big factor in my re-evaluting my law school plans was, "I don't want to be surrounded by these people"). I imagine the med school boards are infested with analgous people, and that the sampling of those kind of forums tends to be the most "off" crowd, as opposed to the more well-adjusted people I know who are doing professional degree programs. For you software/IT types, think Slashdot for med students. I bet that explains a good deal of it.
Think about the kind of person who would join a board to talk about where they applied to law school. Believe me, there are morons everywhere.

What about a high quality stretch poplin or gabardine (like Prada, Costume National, or Jil Sander use.)  I'm being serious here.  I actually like them.  These fabrics allow a shirt to be cut very slim, without being uncomfortable or constricting.  
Agreed. I love Prada's stretch poplin shirts. Really wonderful slim fit. I have a difficult time in America finding shirts that fit slim, and short of Prada and MTM Zegna (they do a European cut), I'm at a loss.

"Doctors dress according to how they need/want to be perceived: reassuring. And excepting for plastic surgeons, there is nothing reassuring about someone who looks like he spent all morning trying on different outfits. The look should be respectable, but as bland and as unstylish as possible, so as to convey an image that says "I want to look professional, but really, I am totally unconcerned with anything other than getting that artery unblocked. " Excuse me for contradicting you so directly, but what you say is nonsense.

No apologies needed, that's just my opinion based on observations and discussion with a lot of doctors, from interns to the highly paid surgeons, to deans of medical schools, some of whom I also know personally. None of them came outright and said this, but that was definitely the begin the lines message I got. I would like to know why you disagree though.

And they seem to migrate to the sales department of your local-mall clothing store... Jon.

When I was growing up, the father of my best friend was a surgeon. He would come home at night still wearing his gowns, with chunks of gall bladder on them, and sit down to watch the game with us and dig into the pizza we'd ordered. I'm serious.

Did his car just have a lap belt, or did it slide across his chest too? Because then the seatbelt had those chunks on it too, and that could mess up the tie, the shirt, the light-colored springwear...

Real men never used seatbelts back in those days. All Doc ____ cared about was flying planes, fishing for steelhead trout, shooting elks in Wyoming and eating. So he, needless to say, didn't have too many nice clothes to mess up with gall bladder chunks.

In Soviet Russia, insults Ernest you. Alright, that was lame, but every proceeding "In Soviet Russia..." joke after the initial one on /. usually is lame.

Dear LA Guy, you attributed to the physician, while dressing, the thought that "I want to look professional, but really, I am totally unconcerned with anything other than getting that artery unblocked. " That sounds to me like wishful thinking. Certainly there are the well turned out ones, but it seems to me that most physicians, while dressing, have the thought HHHMMMMMMMMM running through their minds, just like my cats. God bless the ones who take a care but I know a lot of docs (my wife and I being in the trade for 25 years) and I think that I am more right than wrong. Regards, Bill

Fair enough. I probably attributed more conscious effort to them than I should have. LA Guy.
