What a pain in the arse!

Currently I'm neck deep in completing the AMCAS aplication. And when you've attended 13 different colleges/universities (yep, you read that right), and have almost 4 college degrees (which isn't bad for a person who once flunked out of college) it can take a LOOOOOONNNNGGGGGG time to fill out the coursework section of the application.

I'm also consulting with my LOR writers/mentors in putting together a list of schools. As much as I talked about not applying to schools outside of the area where I currently live, I think I'm going to do just that. I've got the FULL support of DH so it's pretty much all systems go! I simply have to decide where to apply which isn't as easy as some would think. The only real limiting criteria I have is that the schools need to either have a solid Pathology program or be near one locally so that isn't very limiting. I'll also be staying on the East Coast so as not to get too far from my stepchildren and family. Other than that.......................

I've also upped my time in Path conference/sign out so that's been cool. I've found quite a few websites with path unknown cases, so there's no shortage of places for me to get my pathology on. I do miss using my microscope though, but I'm sure they'll be PLENTY of that in my future.

In other news, my daughter and I will be taking our annual mother/daughter trip soon and this year we decided to go to Providence RI. She's really into architecture, so we plan to take a ferry ride to Newport to do the Mansions tour! It'll be great fun and I can't wait! We're taking the train so we can see some of the country, because I HATE driving, and because I refuse to get ripped off by the gas companies anymore than I have to for normal daily activities. At any rate, I'll be sure to take so pics and post then when we return!
