    So what is everyone asking for Christmas this year? Stethoscopes, usmle help programs, books, dress clothes, money? I just realized that I could use a whole bunch of cool stuff this year that would help out. Anyone else already planning out what they want or need? Just thought it would be interesting to hear some ideas you sdners have thought of, or to give ideas to those of us who are still thinking.

    Good luck to all!!!

    Mark :) :)

    definitely nothing medical for christmas. What about a new fishing rod? or maybe just some cash to resupply the bank account with! anyone with me on that one :) . I am really anxious for Christmas. I cant remember a time when I was not more ready to go home with the family and be a lazy slow. I plan to 1. eat 2. sleep 3. watch football 4. eat 5. sleep again

    Mum & Dad: tuition money please!
    Sis: 99cent Harvard bumper sticker
    Bro: He never gets me anything, so no need to ask
    Relatives: Please it's okay to give nothing (I'm sort of tired of donating the ill-fitted $4.99 tops/outfits from liquidators to the thrift store after X-mas).

    So what do I really want? With all that's going on in the world, I just want to feel comfortable in knowing that my family is heathy and okay and make it to medical school alive next year!

    I'm planning on getting myself a nice brand-spanking new Compaq iPaq handheld (like a Palm Pilot). My birthday is on Sunday....perhaps I should wait. Anyone want to send me a birthday present? :)

    I got a nice Littman stethoscope last Christmas, but I've hardly used it. I'm afraid to take it with me on the Ambulance, cause I'd probably lose it on an accident scene, someone's house, etc. Kind of defeats the purpose, I suppose.

    I think my folks and I have already decided that my major gift is going to be a new interview suit, which I think I'll actually get over Thanksgiving break, since I may need it before Christmas (fingers crossed). Other than that, I think I'll probably ask my brother for some new CDs since he works at a music store, and I'll get a little $$$ from the rest of the family. I think all the medical stuff will comelater, once I actually get accepted.

    I'm asking for a new stereo, if I'm going to be studying my a$$ off, I might as well have some way of listening to the tunes. I got a suit last year for job interviews and luggage for graduation. The laptop is coming when I know what I'll need for med school :)
