amelie,

Sorry to hear that. Since you're looking for a job, I take it that you're not applying to med school this year??


ps:
You could probably get more hugs from the Lounge than here in the pre-med. Good luck with everything. :)

{{{{{{{{amelie}}}}}}}}}}}

I know what you mean. I've been looking for a job but can't find one because I have to take a month off in Dec to get married. Nobody wants to hire me. :( But keep that chin up, we'll get through this.

Hey Amelie--ditto-- keep your chin up!! When I graduated, I couldn't PAY anyone to hire me full time. Five years later when I was in the job market again, the jobs came looking for me--including the one I now have.

I know it's really tough to get through, with the rejection and the lack of money being a double whammy. But you'll get through it somehow, I'm confident, and then you'll appreciate your good fortune even more. :)

Amelie, you will get through this magnificently. And when you look back at this time, it will be a source of strength and a measure of character.

Just remember - there are as many neurons in your brain as there are stars in the galaxy ...

ameile,
i posted this somewhere else, but look into teaching for kaplan or the princeton review! (or examcrakers if you're in the nyc/nj area). if you scored well on at least one subject on the MCAT (12+) than you can probably teach it--they need teachers pretty badly nowadays. and they pay pretty well too!
if not the mcat, what about the SAT? (pays less, but it's still $$, and a fun, laid-back job).

A couple of my friends did one that was $700. It had to do with lifting a heavy box as many times as you could for an hour or so on at least 4 different days (timed with their cycles). The point was so that the Army could find the effect of the menstrual cycle on physical strength or something like that.

Also, one of those same friends did a hormonal study. I don't know what hormones they gave her, but they paid her a lot for it (several hundred). She had to go off the pill for that, of course.
