LSU New Orleans Class of 2014

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
out of curiosity, has anyone been contacted by their big buddy yet?

I have. We're friends, though, so maybe that's why it was earlier for me.

Has anyone not gotten their email about financial aid rewards
 
I'll probably try and do that stuff next week, but I probably won't have enough money to buy the parking tags. :laugh:

Just so you know they'll charge the parking stuff to your fee bill so you can get it before you get your aid. So you may be starving and homeless but you'll have a parking space ;)

Sweet, thanks. I really don't feel like begging my parents for money. At least not yet, we'll see how things go. :laugh:
 
Got my ID today. Woot.

McSexy, that was kind of crazy how we just randomly bumped into each other and wandered around the buildings until we finally found the right one.

This school is IMPOSSIBLE to navigate right now with the FEMA mitigation. :mad:
 
I think what's more funny is that no one else seemed to know what we were talking about, lol.

Also got my fin aid email today. All loans. I'm in the money, yes! :laugh:
 
..I feel like I'm missing out on all the fun :)
On the other hand, I'm finally in New Orleans! Going to get my ID tomorrow..

What did you guys bring to get ID?

Cool.

You just need to your Driver's license.

BTW, to help you out, the building is the Library and Resource building. Take the elevator the 3rd floor. Go in the library and take the stairs up to the next floor and then follow the signs to registrar.
 
Awesome, thanks!

Maybe I'll randomly run into you too :p..except I won't know it's you.

I can't wait to meet everyone!:D

Those are some really good directions. Too bad we didn't have those when we were there. :laugh:
 
Does anyone know what floor the room for orientation, Lecture Room B, is?

1st floor of the MEB (medical education building). You can also enter from the top on the 2nd floor.
 
I feel like I'm freaking out about internet usage now....like..if I go on msn or sdn, am I gonna get flagged? ..Let's see how long I last in the dorms without getting my own internet..

btw..Metallica, where you sitting on the side close to the door, about half way up? I feel like the guy sitting there could be a "Metallica" :)

You will get flagged if you're using a ton of bandwidth. I know of attendings who got flagged for too much youtube :) Its for a good reason tho, before the restrictions the server would freeze; it runs the hospital's internet so thats a big friggin deal. They need a server upgrade bigtime and are maneuvering to get it.

I sat in like 3 different places today, but I was around there in the morning on the right side I think. I probably don't look very "Metallica" right now since my hair is a lot shorter than usual. :laugh:

And if you saw him maybe you saw me, lol.
 
BTW, if anyone is looking for cheap scrubs. I went to Uniform Advantage in Metarie and picked up some reject and irregular scrubs for ~$5 a piece.
 
Lol. Not as bad as it sounds. I got some black scrubs that were rejected because they were off shade. I.e. Faded instead of black black. The irregular ones usually were ones that had one leg longer than the other. But it wasn't drastic, barely noticeable IMO. I tried them all on and they looked ad felt fine.
 
Anyone know what the treasurer of note taking service name is?
 
Good luck everyone! I am sure you will all do fine.
 
Agreed. Ours was more fat than muscle. Very poorly defined. Just found the occipital nerve, C2 vertebra, and started removing fat til we hit muscle. Finally broke down and confirmed it with Dr. Swartz at the end of lab.

Yeah, we had two different profs come over and try to help us at some point and still couldn't find the damn nerve. We think we found it at the very end of the lab. I'll guess we'll see when we go back.
 
Figured I would give this a 5 day bump.

How are things going for people so far?

Good except for this douchebag I sit next to.

Yeah, that guy is an ass.
 
Labor day! = long weekend. maybe I'll finally get to catch up with all the material..

what are some good places to visit in the city? I figured that I might go sightseeing somewhere outside instead of making the gross lab my highlight of the week again.

You could go downtown with all of the tourists... Magazine St has some cool restaurants and boutique shops. You could check out zoo and/or Audubon park. Or you could go to the Westbank. :laugh:
 
I love our aquarium and zoo. Could just take a walk through the french quarter and browse as you go (but if you're going to wander aimlessly, do this during the day). Jackson Square. St. Louis Cathedral. The Cemetery.

If you've never really spent any time in the city though, I'd pick exploring the quarter on foot. I know more about the northshore though, if you ever decide to look for stuff to do that way.

which westbank are you talking about? the one that's actually on the west side, or the one on the east side? :p
 
I would avoid the quarter for the most part this weekend. Southern Decadence is in town starting today and going until Sunday.
 
Southern Decadence is pretty fun. Even if you are straight you can have a blast with those guys.
 
Anyone still checking this? We are now in the last week before the test:scared:. I have been studying as hard as I can, and was pleasantly surprised by the practice practical last night.
I was wondering if any former students remember if the cutouts were any help? In looking at them I feel like the gross and HPD seem fairly representative of what we covered in class (even if there are some incorrect answers), so I am hoping for similar types of questions on the exam. (please correct me if i am wrong) However, the histo cutouts seem to be too old. We didn't even mention half of the info in them in class. Any words of wisdom for the histo written exam? I feel fairly confident on the practical portion, just don't know how detailed the written might be. Just trying to appropriately schedule my final few days of study time.

Obviously I'm a first year, so I haven't taken the tests either, but on down the information train from a bunch of other students, I've heard this:

Gross:
Cutouts are useful, and mock practical seemed like a fair representation of the types of questions asked. Read the clinical correlations (i.e. Blue Boxes) in Clinical anatomy as they will definitely be part of some of the written questions.

Things not on the mock practical that will be on the the real one: Breasts and Fetal stuff. They said that for the fetal stuff it should be pretty straight forward. I.e. cotyledon, ductus arteriosus, and maybe some of the abnormalities of the placenta

HPD: I've heard that basically reading the Top Points and doing cut-outs and possibly reading a review book like High-Yield should net you at least a High-pass.

Histo: I haven't really heard anything from the upper years on this. But it seems that at least for this first block test, that the cutouts aren't going to be useful. Though I haven't really looked through all of them.
 
The mock practical for anatomy was probably pretty close to the real thing. The main difference is that the profs will clean stuff up so you can see it better, but this help will probably be counteracted by the nerves of taking the actual test. There will probably be more first level questions than on the mock as well, since each 2nd year student tends like to put 2nd and 3rd level questions on the mock making them overrepresented.

Histo practical is a breeze

I can't remember much about the cutouts and their usefulness for first semester.
 
Thanks for the input. I am just going to put a little more time in on histo and hope it is enough. I realized today I need to spend a little more time with some EM pics for histo lab, but other than that and doing a little more HPD review and I will hopefully be ready for monday.
 
...I just got raped by SPM...anyone else with me?

..how much was that exam worth for our overall SPM grade anyways?
 
Yeah, I feel like we were lied to a little bit about what would be on that test. I and a couple of others emailed her last week and she said it would be "very general" questions. Some were fair (ethics, etc...), but the developmental stage one and some of the others were bogus.

On a positive note, HPD and gross didn't seem as bad as they could have been. I felt really good about HPD after the test....gross i'm a little more skeptical about but hope the practical will help me out there.
 
I passed SPM by one question, lol. From what I can tell the class average is going to be around a 65-68. The highest I've heard has been an 84.

And that blood pressure cuff question was ******ed.

As far as gross, I heard (this is before questions are tossed), that the average is around a 82, highest was 100 and lowest was 50-something.

I felt okay about HPD. I should have studied the bigger picture more and not have been bogged down by details. I passed but could have done better. The good thing about HPD is that we have just as many lectures that we had this semester spread out over the rest of the year.
