    Just made a decision guys, and I will be going to Weill! Albeit some debt but it's worth it to pursue my dream. That being said I withdrew from Stony and the Turner fellowship I got there so anyone from this group waiting on that, I pray you get it.

    Everyone come back for like 3mins of yall time. I got a late as hell update. I wanted to spam y'all instead of the new thread since this is where I started when I applied for 2016-2017 cycle. Any-who if anyone remembers I got 1 interview last cycle was placed on hold then rejected. Well I applied to a post bacc program that allows you to kinda be a "M0", students will take first year med school classes with the other first years and as long as keep a certain GPA average then they matriculate officially the following year. I found out I was ACCEPTED a few days ago. Classes start in a month. I have no choice but to succeed in this program so I'm speaking it now I'm going to medical school next year!!!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to check in. Offer space for decompression, debriefing, or small talk. I have been very challenged, even at such a progressive school, with race relations and cultural humility. The minority tax is high, and I'm trying to still have strength even in those situations. Sigh.

    Hey @WhittyPsyche I can relate. Transitioning has been a bit challenging. I think for me, it is most unsettling to notice people's implicit biases being played out...no matter how "liberal" or "open-minded" they think that they are and it's quite tiring sometimes

    Exactly this! I don't know, but if feels even worse when I see the white liberalism play out.

    I havent experienced anything as well. I dont mind questions as the one above because people are just generally curious about race stuff and I rather talk to them about it than have them keep their biases.

    I am doing good in Anatomy so far, but I have been studying hard and not feeling victimized even though a Indian classmate asked me if I ever dated an Indian man. It's odd I told him "not yet". I thought his question was sincere and he seems really nice.
    I am a little torn I know I am too busy to date, but I should have plenty of social justice warrior time....
