Alright for those of you who are still finishing college and are lucky enough to hold acceptances right now there is another semester/two more quarters left before summer and then Med School!:soexcited::soexcited::soexcited:
What kind of classes are you guys taking to fill out the year?

I'm done with my major so I'm taking Econ, Classic literature, a Med Ethics course, and a couple Psychology courses. All told it should be a pretty easy couple of quarters! Anyone have an easier workload? A Harder one?

At my university during our last semester we can take as many hours as we need to graduate and still be considered full-time. I'm taking 8 hours. :D:D:D

I'm with ar2388, I forget everything if I pull an all nighter, I still remember stuff from my freshman year classes thanks to my 8 hour a night sleep policy hahaha

I kinda like studying for the tests, everything else seems so dull, I like the challenge. I got nothing to prove to anybody haha, I just get bored when I have free time =/

WHOA... easy on the flattery. Med school is full of people like that. You won't be lonely...but it will be nice for you to meet people of the same academic interest and drive. Makes conversation easier because people don't see you as such a nerd anymore... you are just interested.

This thread is great.

my brain also tends to stop working very well after like 2-3am.

i have been thinking about all the studying we will have to do next year and im kind of excited.. this is our last formal schooling, what we have spent so much time and energy working towards, and I want to go all out.. i want to do everything i didnt do in undergrad because i didnt care enough - make detailed notes, not slack off on the studying, prepare for lectures....

whee!!! so excited! :soexcited:haha im such a nerd,

I am actually taking 19 units:eek:

Impressionist Art History:4 units
Art as Social and Political Commentary:4 units
Turkish II:5 units
Research Seminar:2 units
Last Quarter of Honors Thesis:4 units

These are all supposed to be relaxing classes though/ classes I want to take... with the exception of the 2 unit Research Seminar... the professor is evil and is known to have failed people before:scared:

Wow! Well don't get a laser focus from your time spent on these forums. Getting to med school is as much about the journey as the destination. Make sure you take fun classes!!

But it is oh so nice when you get that acceptance and realize you don't have to work so hard to impress anyone for the rest of your UG!:smuggrin:

Suizyme09... Where did you end up deciding to go? Just looked at your MD apps and curious why Cinci vs OSU? I looked at these schools a bit because of proximity...

To be honest I'm not 100% sure yet. I really liked both schools. UC impressed me the most as far as their facilities, curriculum, and how much they really seemed to want me to come to their school (if that makes sense). The OSU presentation for interviewees to me seemed pretty much just "here's our curriculum and finances, come here if you want to". In contrast UC put forth a much stronger "this is why we think you should choose us, we look forward to educating you!" feeling for me. I think it's a fit issue really. I just felt at home when I visited UC, and the facilities are certainly nicer. The only reason I might end up choosing OSU over UC is because of personal issues related to the location.

Back on topic! I want to see more of how people are loading up on courses after acceptances! I really am looking forward to two quarters devoid of Labwork, homework problems, and calculators. Hello BS term papers and Reading assignments!!:laugh:
