In case you don’t know what a gunner is, or if you want to figure out if you are one, I’ve developed this quiz to help you.
You Might Be a Gunner If…
You sit in the front row, add 1 point.
You have asked a question in class, add 1 point for each question. (If you can’t remember how many questions you’ve asked, you can just stop now, gunner.)
You have worn your scrubs when not in anatomy lab, add 1 point.
Your professor knows you by name, add 2 points for each professor.
You have aced an exam, add 2 points.
You have bragged about acing an exam, add 5 points.
You didn’t ace an exam, but told everyone that you did, add 100 points.
You are in more than four student organizations, add 1 point for each additional one.
You hold an office in your student organization, add 1 for each office.
You have covered an entire dry erase board with all the steps of the TCA cycle, add 4 points….and please stop doing that.
You have never skipped a lecture, add 1 point.
You have corrected a professor in class, add 1000 points.
You like having lecture quizzes and have signed a petition to keep them from being abolished, add 6 points.
You have referred to yourself as “doctor” on at least one occasion, add 3 points.
You find this quiz offensive and not at all funny, add 1 million points.
This is the funniest thing you’ve read all day, minus 100 points.
If you scored a 10 or above, congratulations! You are a gunner! (and you will make a great surgeon someday…)
If you scored between a 5 and a 10, congrats, because you are also a gunner.
If you scored between a 0 and a 5, you might fool some people, but you are probably still a gunner.
If you scored a 0 or below, you are awesome and we should be friends. Also, you should probably be studying instead of reading this because you may be close to failing out of med school.
