here is a copy of an email i sent my classmates for last seesmter. this semester i realized i had to cut my sleeping time down to 6-7 hour per night instead of 8+ - so sad. time is a hard thing to estimate because it really does depend on your study style. i am horibble at cramming - really bad! so i need to spend a lot more time with material then most of my classmates.
i just wanted to give you all a heads up as to how much time you really
will have once classes get into full swing.
total hours per week : 168
minus sleeping: (56)
eating/food prep (10)
class time: (18)
clinic practice time: (10)
study time : (25)
email/surfing the web: (7)
so that leaves you with 35 hours of "free time" but...
are you in a relationship? (18)
do you commute? (10)
watch tv? (?)
family drama? (?)
so as you can see, your time is going to be your biggest commodity. you
will have the time to have fun and be involved, just chose wisely.
