So a quick update from Los Angeles! I’m really settling in and loving it here. I’m about a month into my job, which I definitely adjusted to very quickly because I did the same thing in Boston. The cool thing about this job, though, is that I get to test babies in the NICU. I am so amazed when I go in and get to see all the tiny babies.
I start my post-baccalaureate program in about a month at Charles Drew University. Its actually a medical school which partners with UCLA, so their professors are great! Orientation is in about two weeks. I’m so excited to meet some new people and to get back on track with all my heavy science courses in order to get ready for medical school. I’m so glad I’m taking a little time off to improve my grades, experience, and myself before medical school. I felt it was really necessary for me. Talking to a lot of doctors and medical students; taking time off is now the thing to do! As long as you spend the time wisely, its definitely a recommendation. I know I’ve been busy and will continue to be busy.
On the plus side, I get my diploma in a few weeks! I’m finishing up a few summer courses and I will officially get my bachelor’s degree in three years! Anyway, I love the random questions I get on here, so keep them coming! I’m happy to talk about Northeastern or anything else.
