    I was wondering, is anybody doing something cool this summer? I am trying to decide wether I should travel, work or find somewhere to do research before starting med school in the fall.

    Sleep and hang out by the pool. Trust me, you'll wish you did this time next year.

    Also, EdingerWestphal is a great name. :laugh: I'm guessing that there are more than a few pre-allo's unfamiliar with it, but they'll get it soon enough.

    I wish that I was a trust fund baby. But, alas, I will be working construction, sweating in the heat, trying to pay down on my credit cards that are out of control due to interviewing costs. An ice cold beer at the end of the day will be my only comfort, my only reward, and then in August, I will trade the tools of my trade for books.

    I want to travel! But, my travelling for interviews has depleted all my funds. I'll spend the summer back home...my pool-less home. Sad.

    I thought somebody would like the name.

    I'm thinking traveling a little and hanging out in the mountains sounds good to me.

    i can't wait to see the threads discussing how best to prepare for the first med school exam the summer before the first year. ;)

    I dont know who you are, but i like you... i will be doing the same... i have spent this whole year off working 60-70 hrs a week at 2 jobs, paying off credit cards from my trip last summer after graduation. This summer, if i ever get back to 0 on my credit cards, i will move home, work construction with my dad, and hang out with my little brothers (we have a couple back-packing trips planned...

    i just want to relax a little before the whole process gets rolling again...

    Don't worry, most of the pre-allo's disappear from SDN at about the time that they start medical school. When they ask questions like this before med school starts, they have a tendency to get flamed heavily.

    MeCord3, if you're telling the truth, you're the man.

    If I knew martial arts, I could crush my enemies...
