    No, the consensus seems to be that you're not going to be screwed because of one C.

    That said, it ain't over 'til it's over. You never know what you're going to be able to pull off. Stranger things have happened.

    Good luck and may the force be with you!
    :luck: :luck: :luck:

    Edited to add... OK, I'll hold you. :) <<<hug>>> There you go. All better!

    Go, SpeedRacer,
    Ever onwards,
    To the books and to the whiteboard with you!

    Oh, I know,
    Fear is a powerful motivator,
    Feel the fear and use it to your advantage!

    Speed, you really should
    Dive in and not come up for air until
    Nothing more can fit in your brain!

    Atta boy! Here's a hug.
    Now, you know what you need to
    Do at this moment.

    Granted, it's hard, but
    Only tonight matters, so...

    Buckle up
    And prepare for the bumpy ride.
    Calm yourself and realize
    Krebs is not your enemy.

    Today is your day to shine!
    Optimism!

    With guts, you'll get glory,
    Or even an A.
    Recharge your batteries and
    Know you can do it!
    !
    !
    !

    As long as you don't get an F, med schools don't give a damn. I HATE that about medical schools. Screw them. What about the people who reapply with solid grades in their senior yr while others slack off? (Rhetorical question.)

    Why dark side,
    How nice of you to write such
    An inspiring
    Thing.

    A mistake I made
    Recently was to waste time and
    Energy on things other than studying.

    You see,
    Oh darkside, there is no motivation or
    Underlying reason why I need to do well.

    Pillows
    Under my head are the only
    Thing I want right now.
    The problem is that
    I keep thinking, if I fail, even though
    Nobody thinks it will happen, med school is possibly
    Going to withdraw my acceptance.

    Oh, and by the way, regarding your
    Funny response to my post, consider the
    Following.

    By being on SDN, I am wasting time. But
    You must be wasting time as well.

    But, we will never realize our true potential, because
    Even if we sign off, both you and
    I know that we will
    Never rid ourselves of this
    Godforsaken addiction.

    Oh and by the way, the Krebs Cycle is
    Not on the exam tomorrow.

    So the question is, what
    Do I do now? Pull an all-nighter or accept that
    No amount of studying will do any good
    ?

    Reasons to study
    Abound, but
    Chemistry and biochem tests and
    Quizzes
    Usually require
    Extra
    Tricks to motivate you.
    But, if
    All goes well, you will soon be
    Loving
    Loyola!

    There's a lot of very talented beatniks on this thread. I'm hoping to catch some of you at a coffee shop near me sometime soon. In the meantime, I'm going to scratch out a haiku for you all.

    Speedracer, ease up on yourself. One C isn't going to hurt you. Once you pass by doing better than you thought you would, enjoy the company of your family and friends. And a Newcastle.

    I guess you've got to take the exam with the preparation you have, not the preparation you wish you had.

    I'm sure you'll come out of this smelling like roses!

    BTW, I loved your response. :D

    The bolding was quite the be-yotch, wasn't it?

    :laugh: Well, I'm glad to hear that you're holding your head high. One exam isn't the end of the world, even if it feels that way at the time.
