Re: Need recommendation on a trampoline

I'm a pediatrician, also with 3 kids at home. Seriously, just don't do it. Put the money toward the thousands of other activities your kids could be doing. Some people have had fun and never gotten any injuries from them. Some people have also made lots of money buying crypto on margin. Maybe your k...

Re: real estate back to 2008 crisis?

Definitely not an expert, but the issue in 2008's crisis was that subprime lending had two major effects: 1) Mortgage credit was obtained by many who couldn't realistically afford to keep up with payments on the credit, and 2) The widespread availability of this credit inflated housing prices as a l...

Re: What is the best path to get into MED School for a high school senior?

Really great input from everyone. I agree that a less-prestigious undergrad school makes total sense if it is much cheaper and, more importantly, a better overall academic fit. Outside of the lowest-paid physicians (and speaking as a pediatrician with all due respect for my good friends on track to ...

Re: What video games are you currently playing?

I knew there had to be at least some of us on here. Given limited playing time the past decade or so I have been playing for the first time most of the big games from the last 5-6 years. I have a huge backlog of PS Plus games, which are conveniently mostly the big games I missed. Just wrapping up Ni...

Re: What is the best path to get into MED School for a high school senior?

Practicing MD here from a wholly non-MD (or any graduate school) family. Sounds like she has stellar grades/scores thus far and is well on track. If you google "tips to get into med school" you'll find a million versions of the same list, and for good reason. Ultimately it generally boils down to a ...

Re: Baby registry "must haves"?

Father of 3 and pediatrician. runner540 and brich79 pretty much nailed it. Two words of caution with some of the other posts: 1) Forehead thermometers are not typically useful in making medical decisions about newborns. If your baby seems fine, don't check their temperature. If they don't seem fine,...

Re: AP Computer Science A online course recommendations

Not a CS major and didn't take AP Computer Science. But, I took some CS in college, currently program pretty frequently as a hobby (have deployed a few simple-ish apps), and in high school took multiple AP tests for courses that were not even offered at my semi-rural high school on top of my full ju...
