A group of college students who are studying the subjects needed to apply to medical school. Like all groups, they include people who are nice and people who are not, as well as people who are smart and people who are not, among other categories. The not-so-nice and the not-so-smart however is what some think of when they think of the word "pre-med". These are usually the sly people who try to get by and make up for their not-so-smart-ness by being backstabbing users. But people forget such people exist in other groups as well as they are all around us and arguably needed for society to accurate understand what makes humans human.

People who are pre-meds want to be doctors for many reasons, including the good reasons (which does not mean they have to join the army to save people because it will mean other sacrifices such as sacrificing being with their family) and not so good reasons. These not so good reasons include the misguided idea that they can make a lot of money, which is actually not true if they look at the amount of, for example, insurance they have to pay.
Premed 1: I think I'll drop premed after this test.
Premed 2: What, why? How?
Premed 1: I'm trying to score a C so I can show my parents and maybe they'll finally let me be a math major.

Premed 1: I now understand why doctors are so douche.
Premed 2: You mean "douche" like someone walking around with a "number 1 premed" shirt?
Premed 1: -Looks down at shirt- Oh yeah...

Person: I hate pre-meds; they're such asses. Look at that one walking around with a "number 1 premed" shirt?
Premed: You mean like the guy walking around with a "biology major and proud" shirt?
Person: -Looks down at shirt- Oh yeah...

Person1: I hate people who use words like douche and tool. It's just so...
Person2: Douchey?
Person1: Yeah, seriously. Why can't they just talk regular words? It's not like we don't already have words that mean the same thing.

Get the pre-med mug.
Large number of students who wish to be doctors one day. Because of the amount of work they do and the amount of schooling they have to go through, other students usually hate on them and call them suck-ups. However, this is usually just a simple case of envy in which the other student is jealous of the pre-med's brilliance, work-ethic, and earning potential.
Other student: Yo, you're such a kiss-ass. Stop sucking up so much in school.
Pre-med: Don't hate because you know you can't do this work.

Other student: The world would be better without you pre-meds.
Pre-med: Keep saying that until you're in the hospital about to die and see what your doctor says.

Get the pre-med mug.
Someone who hopes to go to medical school. Even though they say they want to do so in order to help people, they only do so for the money. This is because of the immense pressure pre-meds receive from their parents. Unlike white and black kids who actually have a sense of self, pre-meds lack the balls to tell their parents to fuck off and chose a field for themselves.

Most pre-meds are mostly Asian or Indian, have no friends, and alternate between hours of studying and hours of drinking. The last one wouldn't be bad except once a pre-med gets drunk, it turns into either a crying girl or a loud bro, ruining the party for everyone else.

Also, they are complete morons and only get by through memorization and kissing ass. Because of their incompetence, they are a great source of amusement for chemistry majors, especially in organic chemistry.

At some point during his/her junior or senior year, the pre-med takes the MCAT, which brutally rapes the pre-med. What the average pre-med doesn't realize is that the exam wouldn't be so bad if the pre-med spent the last three or four years studying instead of thinking up ways in which to backstab peers.

Upon failing to get into medical school, most pre-meds end up becoming lab techs (aka. the biology major's and chemistry major's bitches).

**The previous does not apply to premeds who are in ROTC. You men and women deserve a damn loud applause for your service.
Student 1: "So what are you majoring in?"
Student 2: "I'm pre-med."
Student 1: "That's nice, but it's not a major."
Student 2: "Oh, I guess I'm a biology major."
Student 1: "Why did you pick that field?"
Student 2: "Because I want to help people."
Student 1: "Really? Why don't you sign up for Doctors Without Borders or become a doctor in the Army?"
Student 2: "ummm...."

Student A: "Dude, that organic exam was so hard..."
Student B: "Wtf you talking about? All that was on there was nomenclature. What are you? A fucking dumbass?"
Student A: "Yeah, I AM a pre-med..."

Get the pre-med mug.
A choice that people should avoid unless they could easily balance the number of hours studying, as well as the hours volunteering at a hospital, being involved in school clubs, etc. If you get easily overwhelmed, this shouldn't be a career choice for you.
Person 1: How bad is Pre-Med?

Person 2: Enough that poor students get hammered by organic chemistry, physics, and other hardcore classes. If they fail to get into med school, they're fucked.

Get the Pre-Med mug.
Overachieving-ass dweebs (like Hermione) that are in all your biology and chemistry classes. They let everyone around them known that they are pre-med either directly or indirectly through their obnoxious behaviors (including, but not limited to: asking questions about how the material is relevant to the medical field, whether or not the professor has finished writing them a recommendation letter, and boasting about their shadowing experiences). An important thing to note is that not all pre-med hermione's are actually smart, but pretend to be.
Pre-med Hermione: "I'm getting my surgery next week. But I'm not worried; I've seen the procedure done like a hundred times."

Pre-med Hermione: "I can't wait to be a doc. I'm gonna be all like "Open your mouth, and say 'Ah'""

Pre-med Hermione: "Those pills are really bad for you. I would know. I'm pre-med."

A pre-med student who acts like a doctor but hasnt gotten in to medical school and probably never will.
What a pre-med dick, he thinks he can diagnose me with schizophrenia.

Get the pre-med dick mug.
A person who wants to help society by helping people get better. They are caring people who want to go to medical school.
My best friends are pre-med students and med school students. They are AWESOME.
