Getting into Medical School, aka Holy of Holies (the F-1 version)

My adventures as an international student trying to get into a US medical school as a prestigious MSI student!

I am a 22 yr old Foreign lady trying to get into an American med school. The journey has been "rough" to say the least. So join the band wagon and let's see if they think I'm good enough to become a doctor. I hope my story encourages someone, maybe you. Not necessarily to become a doctor, but just to follow your dream. Leave your comments as you read...I thrive on feedback. And if this is your first time here, catch up on what you missed, cus every post IS important...well almost all. So forget that board meeting(at your own risk) or skip that class (again at your own risk) and lose yourself in my archives.

Aight so I finally got my baby back up and running after playing catch me if you can with the DHL delivery guy for three days. I literally had to stalk him on the streets of…well, ABBEYville to finally get my power cord from him, seeing as trying to be at home when he rolled by was proving impossible (see comments from last post for details of what happened). Thank GOD though cus I was beginning to suffer from some kind of blogger withdrawal syndrome. Anyways before I get back to the main story line…a little housekeeping:

It was pointed out to me that my website had occasional popups. I finally confirmed it while trying to access my site from my work computer, I probably never noticed it on mine because of my popup blocker. So after some investigation I realized it might be from the website that supports my polls. Right now I’m enjoying having them on here and getting a feel for what you are thinking. By the way, all y’all that think I still got below a 30 on my second MCATs, all I can say is “dang where is the love?” And those that thought I got above a 30, I like the way you think…you’ll find out the real scores soon enough. Anyways, so I have decided that even though the popups might make my website look a little tacky I’ll leave the polls on for now. You guys can activate your popup blockers too. But if it starts getting intolerable, holla at your girl and I’ll make necessary changes.

I’ll be back with more interesting stuff soon, for now, it’s off to adjust our TV antenna to get CW at its clearest for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 7, yeah baby! Hopefully this one is not as predictable as Nayeemah’s Cycle (4?), feel me? As you can tell we're still working on getting cable TV up in this 1930's joint. I'm just glad we're getting the important channels for this week if not, I would have been getting to know my neighbor's in a minute, at least for tonight!
