    Yeah the future courses thing is fine. I think more to the point is if you have an experience that you haven't done yet - they don't take much stock from it. Courses don't really fall into the category those are more just a checklist item to be completed by matriculation. But let's say you haven't shadowed but say your are going to....that's a whole different story. They want to know what you got out of the experience, and if you haven't done it yet, you can say anything about what I means to you, what you got out of it, why it was meaningful.

    Moving tomorrow. About a 10 hour drive. Sounds long to me, but I'm sure not as bad as some of you will have!

    Took Step and hit my goal score! Super happy. Now on OBGYN clerkship having a great time. Good luck to y'all on Step studying! It sucks but it goes by fast and it's a huge relief when it's over.

    Not the entire class, at this point half the class has taken it. We start clerkships January of MS2, with people split into 4 groups for step (mid feb, late march, early may, late june, or something like that). It's just the new trendy curriculum with a shortened pre-clerkship period.
