Why so much bitterness this year?

Agree with above. Lot of negativity on the board this year, which is surprising given how cool most of the people I met on the trail were. I understand not wanting to participate, but why come on a thread to bash everyone?
I agree also. Urologymatch this year was whack because of all the haters! The "top 5" thread is almost tradition on here (along with many others)...threads like these from previous years were filled with less hate and more participation. they might be pointless and will not change absolutely anytime about our outcomes...but who cares...it's just a way to pass time (like it or not). What other reason do we urology resident applicants have to engage with each other and post on here as time passes...??im not the best applicant and I'm also 'highly' concerned about matching but my concerns do not justify ruining the excitment for others...
I think a few people are bitter because of the stress induced by this process and the uncertainty that goes with it. We're all going into this knowing that the match rate is low. That knowledge alone is enough to invite cynicism and insecurity into the hearts of men and women. As we await the end of this period of cosmic limbo, let us join hands in the spirit of comraderie and sing " we shall overcome." Such an act will soften these hearts of stone and bring us back to the innocence we possessed when we first uttered the words "urologic surgery" many millennia ago. We will be infants once again. Because the eyes of the ranger are upon you. Yee-haw
