Let's say you get into med school, anything special planned?

for me: weep, buy my two year old son a little doctor play kit (unfortunately probably the Elmo one since he's such an Elmo fanatic), and get a tattoo of the medical symbol, the kedusas or whatever it's called. And then some sushi.

Toss back a couple steins of Paulaner Salvatore at friendly German bar as I thank God that my "Primum non nocere" tattoo maintained its relevance.

EDIT: And yeah, I'm taking a trip like the other poster. I'm planning an Italy-Croatia-Greece-Istanbul excursion, though.

Probably invite some of my best friends out for some dinner (no drinks, underage applicant here :( ).
Also, I already told my mom that if I get in, next summer she and I are going to take a trip to NY and do some good shopping :D .

hehe I know, I was joking around. I thought it was funny that you so boldly asserted your gender in such a location.

:laugh: Sorry, it's just that I kept being called a "guy", I guess because that's what people assume if the screen name is neutral like mine...you know, I don't have a name like JackieMD, or MilesVanDerMom...so I just put it up there to avoid confusions. :D

That's quite the celebration. How many offspring are you shooting (ha...literally) for?


And BaylorMed, I suppose I can understand your motive. No one wants their gender to be ambiguous.

like the others i'd like to get a medical tattoo (and it would be my first) I have piercings I have to take out for medschool/interviews, so the would be my alternative choice of expression. I also want to go on another trip to Europe, but I'm starting to doubt I will have anything resembling enough money to even think about such a trip.

Going on vacation somewhere far far away (or as far as my bank account lets me...)












Which is not far.

Hah, celebrate? I'll probably be a pile on the floor from all the stress of waiting. That'll be celebration enough for me.

I know some people who, between their first and second years of med school, are using some of their med school loan money to finance a nice trip abroad. If the money isn't all used up, I certainly hope to do the same. I have no qualms with going into debt an extra few thousand; that's just a drop in the bucket in the bigger picture..

I heard about these things in college called parties. I always wanted to go to one, so after I got into medical school I did and had a carbonated alcoholic beverage and a tobacco product. It was fun and I hope to go to another one after I graduate from medical school.

Accepted Md/PHD in one of my top choice schools= all the above + next day go shopping and buy mother flowers.

I agree. If I can find some money hiding around here I am def going back to Europe. I love to travel, and its def a lot better than spending your money in other ways.

Given the exciting life of someone who works full time in addition to going to school and studying, I'll probably go to work... But there would be a lot of celebrating to be done once a day off rolled around!

I agree. Now that you guys are saying it, I kind of want to do the same. Plus, when you think about it, if you don't do it now, when? After med school is residency, and then work, and we can probably forget about a long vacation for a while...we'll be working 80hrs a week. So, why not do it before that time comes, when we are still young? Europe...here I come!!!!

I'd think you would take the extra loan money and get some acting lessons from Carl Weathers.

One of my friends and I are planning on going to Europe early January (we're both graduating in December). We're going to visit close family friends of hers in Italy, visit friends of hers in Austria and Prague, and then possibly go to her brother's wedding in Belarus (where she's from originally). So if I happen to get into med school before then, that will be my post acceptance celebrate. If not, I'd still like to go anyways. :p

I will probably be decently happy for a week or so, and become steadily more lazy and content in the following months.

I'm going to go to a place where the beer flows like wine, where the women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

If that plan falls through, I will just get piss ass drunk with my friends and give drunken medical advice to random strangers.
