Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. Now as long as I didnt get below a 40% on the genetics final I had today, I have survived the first semester. Its funny tho because it's been so obvious how everyones work ethic has been steadily declining since thanksgiving break. Congrats to anyone else that is done, and to those that are still going at it, YOU'RE ALMOST DONE! Now to drink away a semester's worth of information and then spend the next month trying to re-learn it for step I.

It doesn't feel like I'm almost done when I've got 4 tests next week. It feels like an eternity. But hopefully I will arrive at that fateful destination known as the Friday afternoon of the third test block which commences winter break...all two weeks of it.

Congrats on getting through finals, I'm envious (we got one more week to go). I hate being nit-picky, but why on this green earth would you study during your Christmas break of your first year for step I?? I mean you are free to do whatever you want with your free time, but you just studied like crazy for your finals- you think going it over again will help you for a test you'll take in 18 months!? Relax, enjoy your break, have fun!

Well, just remember that only a very small portion of step 1 tests on first year material. Also, if you knew something "well enough" during the fall of 2008, how much good will reviewing it during the winter of 2008 do for your boards that you'll be taking in the summer of 2010?!

The vast vast majority of the step1 is on second year stuff anyway. With that said, I am not planning on openning any books over winter break, and step1 is only 7 months away for me.

Studying for step 1 during first year winter break? Don't be a ****** man. Step 1 will ask like 5 questions on pure anatomy anyway.


Why don't you just sit back, relax, drink some beer and enjoy a couple football games with your family?

i think me saying im going to be studying is going to end up like every other "how will i better myself" idea lol. usually starts great, might even go thru with it for a few days, then i quickly say screw it.​

congrats on passing your first semester. Now enjoy the few days you have because shortly after you sober up, you'll realize how BORED and hyperactive med school makes you when all of a sudden you have no massive amount of crap to learn.:scared:
Believe me, you'll be eager for next semester to start.
