exams are over


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to break the silence and start a new thread. Now that exams are over (at least for some), I want to see what everyone is doing these days. As for myself, I wish that I could fall asleep and wake up on the 15th because I am so tired of waiting.

ccoh, thanks very much. I really hope that you'll get in...you deserve it.

ufthopeful, good luck on your last exam, smart as you are, I'm sure that you're going to ace it.

Good luck everyone on the 15th and 18th, especially to those who I was fortunate to meet while preparing for the MMI. You guys/girls are the best.

I'm in the midst of reading a book called "bloodletting and miraculous cures" by Vincent Lam, a Toronto ER physician. The book is ok; it’s about few medical students and their lives in medical school and beyond. I recommend this book to all med school fans during this anxiety provoking time.

Ming is funny, but I can't seem to get over the fact that she's so rational in her decision making all the time. It seems that she doesn't have any emotions.

Hey there,

 

Congratulations on the exam completion! On this end, some of us med students have now completed the MCCQE and are awaiting graduation. UofC grad is this Thursday and I'm finally defending my MSc thesis tomorrow. Thereafter, it's a lovely, long holiday that will involve only a little bit of research. :)

 

Cheers,

Kirsteen

i wasn't a fan of ming, either! i know that lam provides an explanation for why she may be that way (trying not to spoil it for others) but still--she's so cold! and i really found her attitude of "do whatever it takes to get in" distasteful. i sympathized much more with fitz :)

 

I quote that.

Kirsteen, you completed a Master's AND a 3-year MD? :eek:

She sounds like christina yang! haha

Go Grey's!

 

To me Christina Yang is more empathetic that Ming. From what I've seen, she cares about her co-workers and people around her. Ming is just pure selfish.

when's may 15th going to be here???? :) It can't go any slower.... :D

 

P.S. Who's excited about Grey's next week?

 

I feel the same way. This process is a torture and I always think that I'm the only one suffering but then I read this and other forums and realize that so many other pre-meds are going through the same thing. Kt, I'm crossing my fingers for both of us on the 15th. You'd make a great colleague.;)

Since the wait is so painful, I thought I would find something fun to distract ourselves....
