Discussion in 'Pre-Veterinary' started by PrincessButterCup, Dec 15, 2016.
Differences between a small program and being in one of the larger ones I guess.
How big is your class anyway?
Being in the 5 year DVM program vs a 4 year killed those dreams for me. Lol
The full ISU class is 150ish? The UNL part is only 27.
Do you like the small first two years? I recently had a discussion with a third year about our application cycles and I kinda regret not changing my residency to Nebraska back in the day and applying to this program
There are pluses and minuses with everything. Small class size means we are closer and have better access to the professors. On the other hand, we don't have nearly as many clubs or extracurricular opportunities that we would at the main campus. The biggest pluses though is in-state tuition and I get to go home and see my family most nights.
These next 3 weeks suck. I’m tired. I’m stressed. I have 10 exams in 13 schools days. I had a presentation on Monday, a paper due tomorrow at the same time as a final and then a quiz tomorrow as well. I want to go home.
My exam today went well but it’s just exhausting. 9 to go.
ALSO, I have to get a new tire because I had a flat tire this morning because there was a nail in mine. So I was late to class and am driving on the spare donut until the tire comes in.
You can do it eggo!!
I am a genius. I set up a humane society surgery rotation for the break and figured I would let work know my schedule on Monday. Oops. I am now scheduled for 2 weeks straight with a couple of double shifts. I didn't want to sit around the house playing video games and binge watching Netflix anyway.
Pharm is officially over and I didn't fail it
Exams done...time for finals.
Three down...three to go...
Finals are done! Now excuse me while I go sleep for a few days straight..
A week till my lab final and two weeks till our class final
YOU CAN BOTH DO IT I BELIEVE IN YOU
Almost all of my finals are “low A to get an A in the class, ~50% to get a B” and that’s pretty hard for my motivation
How do you study?!?!?!?
Like... now or in general?
In general. I've tried different things, and am passing, but I look for improvements to give me some wiggle room.
you remember the professor that I posted a lot about last semester? The one where I studied over a hundred hours for one exam and still failed it?
A little bit of me doing well is spite, in that my GPA this semester is more than an entire point higher than last semester because of that class.
I honestly love that.
And the rest of it is Anki/ Quizlet, good repetition, and then we’re starting to get the clinical relevant classes so I actually gaf. So we’re in clin path, parasit 2, clin anatomy, virology, and pharm
I have a B in virology and clin anatomy, but an A in everything else, including my electives. It’s mostly spite though. Spite is the driving force for most of what I do
The Force is strong in this one.
What can I say, I’m a salty person! LOL
Spite is giving me so much motivation right now. More spite against this semester as a whole though. Like, **** this semester and how it has ruined everything and stolen my soul, at the very least it will not destroy my GPA.
Literally same. Got a B in my case based class (no +/-). More than likely going to get a B in Pharm as well (no +/-). Everything else I need to get an A on final to keep my A in the class. Hematology probs will get B+ (hoping). So hard to study but know I will be mad at myself if I let them slip. 4 down and 4 to go!
Commuting and working 20 hours a week this semester did enough damage to my GPA that I really only care about passing. Trying to decide if spite is enough to make me GAF about microbiology. The knowledge that I will never ever care again about what bacteria are differentiated when using a TSI slant test is calling to my inner apathy pretty hard.
There would never be enough spite in the world to make me care about that
My finals philosophy
But what if you only tried like 10%? Asking for a friend.
Turned in my surgery videos today. It really helped when my bloody cat stole some of my suture and I thought I was going to get to practice sewing on her after the foreign body surgery to remove it.
This still counts as trying
My boss would side-eye this so hard
I have 60 more flash cards to get through, and then I reward myself with stuffed crust pepperoni pizza
Passed parasite. One down, four to go.
If you read this fast and entirely without context it brings on a whole different meaning
There are so many possibilities
Phinally pharm is phinished!
So they’re [finally] building a new classroom building for us, and because of, they lost a staff/ faculty parking lot.
Because of THAT, instead of building a new parking lot, they just took away the front row of parking in the students lot (that was already over crowded because they didn’t adjust parking lot size to account for the 18 extra people in every upcoming class).
And then to top it all, main campus made this change during finals week. So we’re completely brain dead, and now we’re fighting for parking. This morning I sat and watched people come in from the parking lot and literally everyone that walked in was upset about it.
The only solution is to burn it all to the ground
Blame it on the first years. Your word against theirs.
No one would believe you. The first years are still shiny, new and veterinary school.
Really? Are they still? I had definitely shed all my shine and love by this point.
Maybe we were older and more bitter to start with?
