Just curious what people's plans are for the summer before you matriculate at med school.

My b/f takes his step I in mid-June, so we're spending the last two weeks of June in Belize (sooo excited!!!!!). Then i'm spending all of july working as a bio TA at my school.... and then off to med school somewhere!!

First, I'm going on a trip to Italy. I'm very excited since it will be my first trip outside the US. Then, I will spend the rest of the summer relaxing and spending time on my hobbies.:)

I will be working until September 1st guaranteed. 8 weeks of summer income translates into almost 8,000 dollars for me (pretax).

With frequent SDN breaks i'm sure.



No use in stopping now, gotta keep in mental shape! Can't stop, won't stop...

What do you guys think about booking a trip to Europe in the month of July when you are still waiting for a waitlist position right now? My worst nightmare would be I am still waitlisted in July and for some reason my presence was essential for getting in at the last hour. On the one hand, insuring I go to med school next year is my biggest priority. But, on the other hand, I want to be able to enjoy my summer with my friends for the last time.

Is being out of the country for a waitlister a bad idea?

I'd go. Just make sure you're quickly reachable, and that someone you trust is authorized to act on it for you.

Am I the only poor person in SDN? Unfortunately, I will not be traipsing around Europe or relaxing on a beach. I will be in a lab somewhere working my butt off, running Western's and Elisa's and getting yelled at.

Hey, I'm poor too, but I'm still going to Europe b/c my internship pays well, and I'm supplementing it with the waitressing gig.
