Hey..didnt want to sound like a pompous kid because I'm not.
Congrats, you are already done with half of your personal statement. Gold star for you.
Congrats on a good career choice.
Your early interest and experience will make for an excellent personal statement, not that you'll need it with all of your connections! I got many compliments for my ps that told of my aspirations to become an anesthesiologist since I was in the 7th grade.
Just some advice: when you go to medical school, keep an open mind about your specialties. You don't want to compromise your education by being narrow-sighted, plus you may find yourself falling in love with another specialty! Luckily for me, Anesthesiology is my destiny AND the best field for me.
btw, my very first lecture of medical school was about the epidemiology of safety, but focused almost entirely on anesthesiology. Coincidence?
Good luck with your career...
You're a douche.
Listen, you've had 7 posts now bragging about your family, UCLA, UCSF, etc... Honest advice would be to give it a rest. Post away with questions, comments, and opinions... but you don't need to mention all of your "accomplishments" in every post.
I don't know why exactly, but that just strikes me as SO funny. Sounds like Napolean Dynamite!
Surferboy - you come off as a pompous spoiled little rich boy who will use his connections to get him into med school and beyond. It is great that you have such a love for anesthesia however you really need to know when to keep your mouth shut (and Im sure you will learn all this as you grow up).
Its wonderful that you have connections in the anesthesia world but, dont go spewing them all over the place. ESPECIALLY when you get into med school. We all know the person who is well connected and uses those connections out in the open to get what they want. Im sure its hard not to tell everyone who you know but, behind your back everyone is going to be laughing and talking about how the only reason you got where you are is because your name/connections. Furthermore, if you really suck and are either incompetent or stupid then it will only be more apparent. SO, study hard, work hard and keep some things to yourself.
Come on, he only did that in 5/7 posts.
Hell, with all this blue blood goin' around, I'll have you know that Stoelting's mother is related to my family. The last time I checked, Stoelting beats a Cullen hands down. ---Regards ----Zippy
And I'm the father of Anna Nicole's kid... I hope that gets me my #1!!! I sent that in my thank you letters, so I'll let you all know if it works out.
Hey sorry If I sounded like an arrogant pompous loser. I'm not. Don't worry, I'm working my ass off by myself and my parents don't even know what the hell I'm doing. I just am excited about going in to medicine and following my elders' foosteps.
Better break out the ether and the chloroform then! heheheheeh!
Good luck and sometimes you'll find it more frustrating cos people will always wonder whether you got where you where because of who you know. Don't worry... they'll get over it as long as you've got what it takes.
Thanks. Yea, atleast that will be motivation to be top of my class or anything I do. And I doubt that my relations will help at all for getting in to med school. It will just be nice being able to pick up the phone and call grandpa whenever I'm having trouble with physiology or anesthesia related things. It wouldn't be satisfying if I didn't do it on my own.
