    I am currently in my year off while I apply. I've been doing oncology research and attending with my doctor in the hematology department. I've also been doing a lot of interview travelling and visiting my significant other across the state of PA.

    I work at UCSF in a neuroscience research center for a bunch of PI's. Mostly office work. I'm taking it easy and enjoying free time while I have it. I'm going to start learning a new language or instrument soon. At least I keep telling myself that. ;)

    had a summer research job, but now i am painfully unemployed. jobs are very hard to come by in new york city since the terrorist attacks. oh well, i figure i'll be working hard enough next year, might as well read books and see films while i can.
