Yeah so now that I've been accepted to med school, I really don't want to keep working at my job. It seems so pointless because I know I will be out of there in 4 months. Ahh, but I'm committed until June 24th.

Anyone else feel this way?

Well, I actually love my job (teaching sixth grade). But it would be nice if i didn't have to work all the way until June 18th. I want to hurry up and start med school :)

I like my job as a CNA in the local ICU. It's a front row seat for medicine without any real responsibility, other than helping with some basic patient care. I could however, give less than a flip about the classes I'm taking.

But dang, I just want to have all the final results in so I can make a decision and start planning my move!!

I work as a cardiovascular technician/phlebotomist/medical assistant at a large cardiology practice. It actually is quite rewarding, and the experience is phenomenal - gave me lots to talk about during my interviews. The patients are awesome too, and the doctors I work with always explain things to me. But, it's very tiring since we're super busy. And patients can certainly be annoying, especially when they yell at you, the poor little tech, for the doctor being two hours behind. But I guess our future is filled with being tired, emotionally drained, super busy, and not-so-nice-patients. Yay! :D

God, all I want to do is go to the beach all day or watch movies.

I should be studying right now, but Austin Powers is on, and I've never seen it.

I need Ed McMahon to show up at my door with some balloons and a giant check so I can afford to quit my job and travel the world before relocating for medschool.

seriously, I wish a giant check would come through my door so that I can afford to quit my job. So many of you are talking about quiting your jobs and taking trips, where do you get the $$$?

Definitely. I like my job a lot (just a lab tech, but the people I work with are a lot of fun); however, the moment I told my boss I'm headed to med school this fall, I feel like I pretty much became a placeholder.

The class I'm taking (pre-req for my backup plan if I didn't get into medical school), on the other hand, I could dispose of glady with no tears shed.

My sentiments EXACTLY! Gotta work so I can pay the rent and use savings to move and pay 1st, last, deposit on a new place. I wish I could blow it and go on a whirlwind adventure but, alas, I don't own a money tree.

I agree with all of the sentiments posted on this thread. It's difficult to plan when you don't know where you are going to be come fall. I'm just praying that I hear from the two schools I am waiting on before the summer, so I can plan my move, give my notice, and get geared up to start school. The start dates at various schools differ so much that I don't know what date to give for my notice. The one school I am accepted at starts in early September (which gives me plenty of time to get settled before school, if I plan to leave my job in late-July), but most other schools start in early August (which would call for a much earlier departure from work).

I'm in the same situation as many of you....as much as I want to take time off before school starts, having no cash flow for several weeks is going to be next to impossible....unless I scrape up some kind of bridge loan until my school loans kick in. When does the first loan check come, btw? So many unknowns, but that said, I AM very grateful to be in this predicament!

Shoot. If it wasn't for being a mod, I'd probably never set foot in pre-allo again following my acceptance to my Number 1. :D

1st day of classes. Hence the need to plan finances carefully until then. :(

how come??? I teach HS and absolutely love it. it's pretty cool too that when I talk to the kids and tell them what i've done and what i'm doin, it kinda bring hope into their eyes. like going to college and graduating and stuff. i think it's more because i'm closer to their age and they can relate to me. but anyhow... i am bored with my life. i gotta admit. anti-climactic for sure.
