Nothing to see here…I know! I owe you all an explanation for my absence. I so appreciate everyone who left me a comment or sent me an email checking in on me. You have no idea (really, no idea) how much I miss ya’ll. I owe you a life update, a response to comments you left here, comments on your blog posts, etc. I will do ALL of that…after September 9th when I sit for the MCAT (medical college admissions test) 👀👀👀.

    • Yes…hopefully, I’ve been transparent enough, and enough of myself, that folks are totally surprised. I mean, surprised but not shocked… I’ve missed connecting with folks more regularly. Excited to be peaking my head back out.


  1. Omgggg 😈 I can’t believe you’re going to leave us hanging on that note!!!

    Wishing you all the best for your upcoming MCAT and I cannot wait until you write about it!!


  2. On that note I will be patient! I entered law school at 37, so if you need any support at tackling grad loans and life as a non-trad grad student, I’m here!

    • Awe, you’re THE best. And I MIGHT. At first, I told myself that if I didn’t get into my state school’s program (that offers a full scholarship if you commit to working in primary care medicine in a rural area) that I wasn’t going to go…or even tell you all about it (I know…) but the further down the path I have gotten, the more I have realized I really want this. Honestly, if I were to get into any of the schools to which I am currently applying, I would likely go…


      • Funny, my father ran a rural health clinic and we had doctors from all over the world who were doing that to get free education.

        Made for a rather hilariously diverse childhood for me in a very homogonous area, but it always seemed rather hard on the doctor’s families.

        I started out thinking the same thing, then all these wrinkles came up in the schools that offered me scholarships. In one (before the ACA passed) I’d have been flying blind without health insurance as the school didn’t offer one- which was a no go. So I took the lowest priced and highest-rated one I got in to. However, the tuition went from 11,500 my first year, to 26,500 the third, so even that’s not a guarantee.


      • On a good note, I think they lessened that max time of any direct loans that are income based now. I think the worse case scenario now is 15% of discretionary income for 20 years.
