Happy 33rd Anniversary

My parents were married 33 years ago today!

Tuesday, August 14, 2007


En route to becoming a doctor, I needed to take the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test). It covers 4 year-long courses (General Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry & General Physics). I have taken 1 of them (General Biology). In order to apply this fall (for entrance Fall 2008), I needed to take the MCAT this August. I'll be completing those missing prerequisites (the other 3 courses listed above) beginning in September.

So, long about June 18th, I settled in to teach myself a few things. Between then and August 14th, I absorbed "enough" (theoretically) of the topics and MCAT format to pass & do well. I get my score mid-September.

Taking the MCAT involved a trip to Ellensburg, WA. This is the first year the exam is on computer and they grossly underestimated the demand. But, Ellensburg wasn't so bad. My wonderful husband drove me and took great care of me.
