    Seriously.

    I never thought I'd get on SDN and make big announcements, but what the hell, I'm doing it anyway.

    I am now finished with ALL my pre-med requirements! Took the last 2 finals today (Physics II and Orgo II) and provided I didn't completely blow them, I am finished!

    I should also mention that I graduated from undergrad in 1996, and have spent the last 3 years slowly, painfully, taking all the science I never took as an undergrad. It may not always be pretty, but it's over.

    Now on to the applications...

    I did the exact same thing (3 years of slowly doing the prereqs), so I feel for you, brother. :)

    Hey, I hear ya! I graduated in '97 from undergrad and decided to do a masters (MPH) program. I finished that in '99 and have spent the past 2.5 years finishing up pre-med reqs. I am at the end of this years application process- just waiting on that UCLA acceptance?!!. A word of advise- be patient and very thorough as you apply to med schools.

    Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy...

    Congrats Elysium!

    I just finished my last required course also. I thought I was done two semesters ago, but I was short a physics lab! I know that it sure feels good to be done. :)

    Now go have a beer and then start working on those apps!
