Somber Life Updates

As you all know, I took the MCAT a couple months ago. Sadly, I didn't do quite as well as I wanted, so I'm probably going to take it again next year. But, I'm not particularly upset, because since after about a week after signing up for it, I made some changes to my life plans.

Originally, I'd intended to do an MD/MPH joint program (assuming I got accepted, of course), but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I was not a fan of the set up, where you do the first two years of med school, then your masters, then your last two. I think I'd like my med school knowledge to be fresh for rotations. So, I decided to do an MPH first, which unfortunately means I get to take the GRE this summer. Woo!...not. Why am I telling you this? Because I feel like I whined, vented, and just generally blabbed to you all about the MCAT so much that I'm now obligated to update you on how it went and what's happening next, haha. But I'm really excited for Public Health, because ultimately, that's what I want to go into, and do with my life (yeah yeah, I'm a bleeding heart, deal).

In other sad news, I won't be going to Europe or India this summer. This is particularly depressing, because in addition to gallivanting, I was really looking forward to attending the London premiere of Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, but I guess it will be just as fun to dress up and go here, so I'm trying not to be too beat up about it. Plus, this gives me more time to practice guitar.

Instead, I'm just going to watch this new trailer and the other ones a million times over and over to make myself feel better about life. Okay.


  1. yeah yeah, I'm a bleeding heart, deal

    Sorry that you're going to have to take the GRE and the MCAT again... I've been thinking about the ~future~ lately as well and I'm pretty sure I'll be taking the GMAT for MBA school eventually. And here I thought we'd be done with standardized tests after high school!

  2. I thought we'd be done with standardized tests too! The most difficult part about this time around is that I won't have the discipline of home to focus and study...

  3. It's great to make life decisions like this, and I'm unbelievably jealous of how you seem to have what you want to do with your life all figured out. I'm still thinking about changing my major, and dying for something to happen and I'll suddenly know what I want to do for the rest of my life.

    I'm glad you are making the best of staying home. Study for the GRE and practice the guitar, Europe will always be here :]
