Question What are Examples of Cases not in FA that might possibly show up?

I was just wondering guys, the weirder but possible cases for CS....you know some examples in FA like MVA, Rape, Psychosis...

What type of out of the ordinary(ordinary cases in FA...pain, cough, neuro etc etc) do you guys think have a possibility of showing up on a CS exam?

and I was just wondering could we have depression/fatigue cases in pediatrics as well? besides Mono for fatigue ofcourse

Cat scratch disease, lead poisoning, and autism.

Okay just kidding. 99.9% of the people have said everything is from FA so dont worry!

Im trying my best to help IMGs.. I just cant stand those who want it easier. Life isnt fair, and we have to deal with it.

not that I have a problem or even care about such trivial things and I understand dealing with those people who overtly rant on and on about difficulties in the exam and bias.....but at the same time its not all fine and dandy for everyone, not everyone is living off of their parents and paying just $1000 tuition, you should be careful as a doctor Dr. Patel....for you don't know what kind of circumstances other people have, I for one can relate as I had 2 deaths in the family 1 week before my step 1, and have a job to support my family and all of this while I'm not even married.....so don't judge people before you know them.

Forums are for people to get help/support....and empathy comes from within, it cannot be faked my friend! I could care less man, but you should be careful with others, its just a simple matter of respect for your peers.

and as for weird cases.....Its not unheard of for a surgical or uncommon disease case to show up on the exam, I'm just exploring all possibilities as to expect the unexpected......

good luck to you both!

I really dont understand what part of my post made you feel the way you do. It wasnt geared towards mocking you, but merely trying to be reassuring that
You wont face any random cases which might cause you harm. The "cases" i posted were merely to add in a comic element.

I understand your personal situation, and wasnt trying to make fun of you. My appologies.

PS: My tuition is $15000/12 week semester. Yea, alot more than the sum of your medical school combined, which have come from personal loans.. Not parents! Dont be so quick to judge!
