(Sorry for my cruel humour! Didn't mean to be rude! I had the same problem in my childhood!! That means that you are as intelligent as Asif Ali! He,he,he,he! I conquered it by using my mind and autosuggestion in my childhood! I didn't know at that time that it was called 'autosuggestion'!! )

  Try meditation and breath control. It works wonders everytime for everything! Believe me!! Whatever religion you may or may not follow, give it a try! I don't give a s*it about any fukking religion, but I do believe in power of meditation. My meditations are always without a God and without a religion. It is like exercising your mind to achieve a more powerful mind just like exercising your muscles! Give it a try!! You will be surprised with the results!! Trust me.

  I too have a mild-mod stutter. was also worried like you..but I did match in IM in a very good program. dont worry about it. Do breathing exercises, be confident and you will be fine. Key is to be confident..ACT LIKE THEY OWE YOU THE JOB! trust me-it works.

good luck

  Watch the King's speech.

If a king can be a stammer a doctor can be one too.
