Hello all! Happy end of November–hard to believe that December is right around the corner! Here in Ann Arbor, we have had…rain. And lots of it. Surprisingly enough, it hasn’t really snowed at all yet this year–however, I am sure it will be here before we know it!
In M4 land, life continues to be…great. I read, I interview, I work out, take naps, play with the dog, have coffee with my friends. I had been told that M4 year was going to be an amazing year, and so far, so good. Of course, this month I do have SOME responsibilities in the form of Advanced Medical Therapeutics. This is an online course that all M4s have to take to graduate. It is situated during the interview months, because it is online! This may sound mundane to the tech-savvy people out there, but this is the first online course I have ever taken in my life. It’s. Awesome. Going to a seminar in your pajamas? No big deal! Want to take your quiz at 2 am? Perfectly acceptable! It provides a ton of flexibility for interviews, which is really nice. I did not know how great UMMS is about interviewing until I met students from other schools, who have to continue in clinical rotations AND try to interview at the same time. I am so thankful that I can focus on interviews for a few moths–thanks, Michigan!
That’s about all that is new these days. Michigan beat Ohio State on Saturday (easily one of the most exciting games I have ever attended) and I am waiting [hopefully] for a BCS Bowl selection. I would love it if Michigan went to the Orange Bowl, because Sarah and I will be in Florida during that time…sounds like a great experience to me!
