    Well as we approach August another school year begins, so who's ready? All you first years, who's crapping their Huggies? All of you fourth years, nevermind you've been going to school straight through since last year.

    I've given you a topic no discuss!!!

    I am pretty pumped to start school in a couple of weeks and maybe a little nervous. I just got in des moines today and am moving in as we speak. Is anyone else in iowa yet? Back to the boxes. Later.

    Yeah...I am pumped as well.

    After being out of school working for 2.5 years, I am trying to mentally prepare for this change. Somewhat terrifying but sweet. I am not moving to the Cha Town until next week. Its going to be a change from rural Minnesota, which to you DMU'er is very similar to rural Iowa.

    Any Scholl students make it into your new homes yet?

    Good Luck Everyone

    Oncogene,
    Actually, my apartment complex is almost directly across from the school on Grand Ave. I haven't been doing much, just trying to get settled in, playing/trying to play some golf, and working out a little. Other than that, I haven't been doing much at all, pretty bored myself.

    Thanks for the heads up. I guess I would have been in trouble if I tried to "spell" it out to someone. Anyway, isn't it procounced CHA..., rather than CHI?.....

    I'm going to be living around the Mt. Prospect area off of Golf Rd. It'll be a small commute, but my GF is commuting the other way for school. So I guess its a good meeting place. In addition, I got a better deal on an aparment down there. Its a 25 minute commute from my door to RFU. Only 12 min on the I-294 northbound at least.

    How about you, where are you going to live?

    See you soon.

    It's really pronounced "shy-town" or shy with a "C". So it's more a "chi" (like Chi-sox for the baseball White Sox) say friends I know that lived in the Chicago area.

    Onco and Marquette,

    If you get to bored you can always head up to school. I'll be there in the morning tommorrow if you want to chat.. Onco, I'm glad to hear you found a townhouse. I live in the burbs too, but I'm North. I still take I-235 East to school, it just takes 15 minutes to get there.

    hey feelgood,

    Are you in ankeney? I looked at the same town house I am in now only in ankeney. I decided on pleasant hill because it has a 5 year tax abatement. I like to stick it to uncle sam any chance I get.

    I'll be in one of the first two study rooms (closest to the bookstore) on the first floor of the SEC. I leave by noon but feel free to stop by and chat.

    Hi, I have an interview this coming Monday at TUSM. This is the only school I applied to, and the only one I want go to. I really hope I get in. I think David Martin said I have a very good chance. But anyhow, I'm really nervous about the interview. Is there anyway you could tell me how your interview was? What kind of questions they asked? Who interviewed you? How many interviews did you have? Was the person who interviewed you laid back, or very stern? What did you wear? I was planning on wearing a business suit, the blazer, and skirt. How was the tour of campus? How was the campus? Over all your impression of the campus? I know this is A LOT of questions, but I have never been to there before. My interview on the 31st will be my first time, and I am so nervous, because I have NO idea what to expect. Then I saw your post, and I thought maybe you could give me some insight. I would appreciate it SOOOOOOO MUCH, if you could reply back, and let me in on some of the questions I asked. Thank you!

    What are you doing in a study room? getting ready for a second run at boards in Oct? Go home and hang out with your wife. There will be plenty of time for studying in a couple weeks.

    My wife works from 8-12:30, so instead of sitting around getting fat at home; I sit around and get fat at school. I might need the extra time to study for the October boards; maybe I failed that bad. :D

    Hey,
    I tried to stop by the study rooms by the bookstore this morning (around 10:oops:oish) but I didn't find any. I hope you weren't waiting or anything, and I apologize if you were. Thanks for the offer though.

    Thanks again for the offer, I'll try to stop by tomorrow morning, but don't stick around there if you need to do other stuff. I don't want to keep you from doing anything else. Thanks again for your help.

    I'm so excited about school that I actually bought some embryology and histology books and started reading them!

    I know I sound like a freak, but I am so excited about finally getting to work on my dream!
