It’s been so long since I posted, so I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m still alive. I’ve just been insanely busy. A major project at work decided to bite like a cobra, so I’ve been on the road a decent amount and have been working crazy hours for the past couple of months. I’m also deep in work on my committee letter application and, by extension, my medical school application. I’m trying to put in an hour or two a night writing essays, but I’m not necessarily getting that in every night. I have another 7 weeks before my committee letter applictaion is due, then I can start working on assembly my personal statement. One of the essays I’ve been asked to write is probably going to morph into my personal statement I think.
I’m still working on that research project with a local physician and I’m hoping to have a draft ready by the end of February. Quite a steep learning curve figuring out some of the statistics. SAS / JMP works really well, once you know what to ask it for. If you don’t, then you can stare at the screen for a while and not have a clue. Luckily, the doctor I’m working with is really knowledgeable of statistics and very patient.
Anyway, hope you all are well. I check in here every day and I can see that, from my search summary, a lot of visitors are getting started studying for the MCAT. Best of luck to you all. I’m also better about checking email these days. Thanks again for reading guys. It’s nice to know others are out there swimming against the current as well.
And now, back to work.
