So when I came home today, there was a letter waiting for me on the dining room table. Now I'd received a letter from them before a little over 10 years ago, so I immediately recognized it. I then proceeded to do the cabbage patch, almost on top of the table, LOL!!!
When I took the MCAT this past Septmeber, I registered with a service called Med-Mar, which complies basic information about URM applicants to med schools, to send to those looking to increase urm enrollment at their schools. Now I've taking the MCAT many times, but this is only the second letter I've received from Harvard.
So does this mean I'm going to apply to Harvard? I'd have to really give that some thought. I'm concerned about my age, though I was specifically told by an MD/PhD graduate from my last gig that there was someone my age in HIS class, a few years ago. I'm also concerned about living in Boston since I hear the city is one of the most racially polarized in the US. What I am going to do and have ALWAYS planned to do, was an away rotation at one of the Harvard institutions in the Pathology department.
Speaking of pathology, I'm back on that kick again, probably permanently. Again, LOL!!! I realized after reading and rereading comments on this blog that I should stick with what I know best and am good at. And the fact that I enjoy it is simply an added plus! So I'm back to being Path201X in mind and soul.............though I'd never really changed from it, LOL!!!
