Have a good summer and rest well...I decided to do a 4 week preceptorship at the Medical Center of Independence... :thumbup:

    now we are a class of two......I am at work and I am so bored. :sleep: I have been doing nothing but data processing for weeks. There is nothing worse than sitting in front of a desk looking at a screen all day. Oh well, at least I get to go home soon (the boss left) and play with the new kitten that I got yesterday!!!!!
    ....we had some great storms last night here too. :laugh:

    A lot of the class lives in CT, but I also know a lot who are moving out. I know a lot who do not live in CT anymore and a few who are moving into CT for next year...there are about 50 maybe on avg...but I'm bad in math.

    Hey everybody,
    My name is Josh I will be one of your future classmates.
    I am 30 and live with my wife in Chicago..I will be moving to Kansas City the end of July. I am going to be living at the Woods of Walnut Creek.
    For anyone who is still looking you should check out Woods of Walnut Creek.
    It is less than 5 miles from campus...about a 10 minute drive. They currently have a great deal going for UHS students 7 % of the entire year and 2 months free. You also get a free washer/dryer..The apts are really nice and the area is real quiet and peaceful... there are several pools, 24hr workout room, clubhouse, tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, etc. The leasing agent tolds us that a lot of UHS students live there. My wife and I looked at a lot of apts in KC and the Woods of Walnut Creek was the best deal by far.
    If anyone is interested about Woods of Walnut Creek you can contact Christina Casebolt the leasing consultant at 816-459-8733 or email at [email protected]

    Looking forward to meeting everyone...

    Holy cow, they could have forwarned us about the $700 "equipment" fee. Is this expense included into our student loans? I hope so cause my money tree died!! Well, I'm excited for classes to start and to meet ya'll. :)

    Yeah I know what you mean...I was surprised to get that yesterday and discover that we needed to send $ 700 by July 1st or get our acceptance withdrawn.
    I believe this is covered in the loans they give you for equipment, instruments, etc..

    I know how you feel, my mom called me yesterday to tell me that I got a letter from the school and asked if I wanted here to open it...I about choked on my gum after she got done reading all the "congratulations again" junk. Come on, let me pay after I get my loans...I'm good for it.

    You're going to be lectured on everything from harassment to the total amount of debt you'll be in in the very first week.

    I suggest not freaking out at the 600,000 they will tell you that you'll pay back in 25 years or whatever.

    Anyways....the biggest advice I have for any of you is get in touch with your Big's. Each of us has a unique perspective, but we'll all be willing to help you guys " hopefully" and you can always get in touch with some of us SDB people who aren't your big sib's.

    My group of friends will adopt anyone who is feeling at a loss for support.
    Please email me with questions as I don't come up on the board all that often.

    [email protected]

    I'll be around if anyone feels the need to relieve some jitters. :p
     
  23. What kind of stethoscope are you guys getting? The electronic one sounds cool but it runs on batteries. Ideas?

    Have you seen the school's new logo, kind of bright orange hole or it looks like a ball from a pinball machine? I wish they had a student design contest or made up a mascot? Just wondering if the new first years saw this yet? I don't know how to post pics.
     
  26. No I haven't seen it yet. The web page seems to be down.

    Ok.. class of 08'ers...

    new symbol is on our www.uhs.edu website... but you go to current students, then blackboard

    you guys will see the symbol on the upper left

    you guys will get blackboard once you train on it so it isn't as though you can log in right now.

    all of the class pictures will also be up. ours are on the website. if you want to see them email me, and i'll end up showing you how to look ours up.

    The logo seems very generic with an 80's vibe. I don't really like it.

    They should have a student designed logo contest and students vote on it, instead of them making up some thing that looks just like a circle...

    i agree with wolverine, they should have input from students in some form. That's a very interesting logo, looks almost corporate or for a graphic design school, but a med school? i dont know? :rolleyes:

    I know this topic may have been already discussed but I have been away from the site for a while. I am going to be in KC next weekend looking for an apartment. I was wondering where are some good locations to look at besides CT. If this is a repeat question I apologize. Thanks.

    but then they might have had to pay royalties... :rolleyes:

    dood, they sent out a big green packet that says housing on it. in there they have every decent place ive ever heard of and more. i also saw a sheet somewhere that was included that had current med students looking for roommates... either of these 2 places would be good to start at... ask around...

    You should check out the Woods of Walnut Creek.
    It is less than 5 miles from campus...about a 10 minute drive. Just North of the City. They currently have a great deal going for UHS students (7 % off the entire year and 2 months free). You also get a free washer/dryer..The apts are really nice and the area is real quiet and peaceful... there are several pools, 24hr workout room, clubhouse, tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, etc. Because of the awesome UHS student discount, my wife and I were able to get an awesome apt. 2BR 1100+ Square foot apt for a little over $ 600 a month. If you are looking for a 1BR it will be a lot cheaper. The leasing agent tolds us that a lot of UHS students live there. They even let the UHS students use the clubhouse for group studying.
    My wife and I looked at a lot of apts in and around Kansas City and we thought with the UHS discount that the Woods of Walnut Creek was the best deal by far...
    If interested contact Christina Casebolt the leasing consultant at 816-459-8733 or email at [email protected]

    If you have any other questions let me know

    I think the new symbol is u-g-l-y, it reminds me of the eye of some crazy creature from a bad 80's movie......it just looks generic. I like the new name but we should keep the old symbol...at least it had something to do with medicine...

    Could anyone provide some insight as to the driving conditions in KC during the snowy days? Getting to school during snowy conditions is a major factor for me as far as living arrangements. (This is my only reason for considering CT.)

    Thanks! :)

    well... i drive a rear wheel drive mustang. i can negotiate the roads, and have done so for the past ummm 7 or so years here in kansas city. i have never been in an accident. of course i only started haveing to drive to work in the past 2 yrs, never missed a day.

    even so, to me it is kinda hairy sometimes, and to save on other costs, CT seems like a good choice in my eyes...

    I got a call from one of the student ambassadors yesterday. He was really cool and answered lots of questions I had. It was nice just to chat with someone who has lived through their first year. He absolutley loves the curriculum and has friends in med schools who do it the 'ol traditional way and hate it. Said it was a bum deal that they sprung the mandatory equipment letter on us so close to starting and next year the letter will probably go out in February. He couldn't believe how good the price was for all the equpiment and said it was a good deal.

    Also, I lived in the Woods of Walnut Creek apartments for two years before buying a home here in KC. I really liked them and sooo close to school without living in the hood. :)

    I am from CA and had no experience driving in the snow, but I did just fine and I live about twenty minutes away from the school at The Ethans on Barry road. It was not bad so don't make it a big part of your decision making process.

    I agree, I am also from CA and did fine in the snow. It seems to be the one time a year that the kansas citians slow down on the highways. Make sure your car has good tires and you will be fine. You will just have to budget your time in the morning.

    hey folks,
    I'm toying with the idea of becoming a Missouri resident and changing my drivers license, car insurance and registration, as all of these are a buttload cheaper in MO than in Colorado. Aside from this, does becoming a missouri resident give you any quirks, benefits, or discounts that any of you can think of? Are most of you from different states remaining a resident of your state or switching over? Any info will be helpful.

    Does anyone know how to get a hold of the match lists for KCUMB? Just curious to see where people match. I tried a search of this site but the results came back with no help. Also, has anyone started buying their books?

    2003 match result list was in the packets that were given out during registration. If you need it, pm me and i could prob scan it in or something. You could try calling the admissions office, they're pretty helpful with that
