Your Point?
To inspire those premeds who may go to community colleges. You can still accomplish what you want to do as a physician with hard work. :thumbup:

Chris, either name is ok, but I'd prefer Adapt to avoid confusion. :)

:laugh: Well either way then. I just changed it because as a future physician, I figured it sounded a bit immature. I'm still slick though. ;)

The funny thing is a couple people have said the same thing about me in real life. I wear both glasses and contacts. It appears it has followed me even on the internet. :laugh:
