    [–] Applying to a school without LoR requirements met zSolars 3 points ago in premed

    Some schools will give additional options for your LORs if you’re a grad student or non-trad. Can’t hurt to try, but if you’re unsure just email the schools and ask. I’ve always found admissions to be pretty helpful.

    [–] I don't want to be a mid-level provider zSolars 2 points ago in pharmacy

    One thing to note is that a provider is essentially someone that can bill for services. MD, DO, PA, and NP are all providers. However, PA and NP are referred to as mid level practitioners because they require physician supervision.

    That being said, pharmacists billing for more services as a provider would be potentially helpful for the profession. However, I do not see pharmacists prescribing and managing patients independently without physician supervision.

    [–] Official "holy crap I'm an incoming M1 and I have so many dumb questions I want to ask" thread zSolars 1 points ago in medicalschool

    Thanks for the help! Most lectures are not required. Some stuff in the afternoon is mandatory but by then all the morning traffic will be gone which makes it a super easy drive. I will just test it out like you said and see how I feel as it gets closer to M3

    [–] AP Chemistry and AMCAS zSolars 3 points ago in premed

    You should record it by putting whatever chemistry class you received credit for at your university. For me, it was counted as gen chem 1 with lab.

    [–] Why not (insert other related role) zSolars 1 points ago in premed

    I think you should ask yourself why you decided on medicine vs those other options. Clearly you have a reason for it, as you’re premed and not pre-something else. For me, I focused on how I want to be an expert in my chosen field and serve as a leader and educator within the healthcare team. Also, when something goes wrong and a patient is crashing, you don’t look for the nurse or pharmacist, you look for the physician to intervene. Just stick with what’s pushing you to become a physician.

    [–] Need reassurance about putting in future hours for activities zSolars 6 points ago in premed

    If my math is right, that comes out to 23ish hours per week. Seems reasonable for a part time job when you’re no longer a full time student

    [–] Most meaningful experiences? zSolars 2 points ago in premed

    I think being an orientation leader is great! If it’s anything like my school, I know those are super competitive and likely speaks to your interest in helping others. Personally, I picked the three things I got most excited about. You’ll likely be asked mostly about your most meaningful experiences during an interview, and showing what you’re passionate about will help the interviewers learn what makes you unique

    [–] What to put in personalized dopp bags? - Groomsmen gift help zSolars 1 points ago in weddingplanning

    I was debating something like that, but I was unsure if people would rather use whatever they are used to vs whatever shaving stuff I get them.

    [–] GPA progression throughout pharmacy school? zSolars 1 points ago in pharmacy

    Are you applying during P4? If so, your APPE grades will probably not be counted since you’ll apply during the fall semester before you’ve finished many rotations. Also, I can personally say that when I interviewed for med school, they didn’t really factor in the difficulty of pharmacy vs another major. It was all the same to them.

    [–] PA VS MD zSolars 3 points ago in premed

    I actually applied and was accepted to both before committing to med school. I avoided applying to both programs at one school out of caution personally

    [–] Didn’t think we were going to have a honeymoon, but... zSolars 1 points ago in WaltDisneyWorld

    Congratulations! My fiancée and I are going for our honeymoon at almost the exact same time

    [–] Official "holy crap I'm an incoming M1 and I have so many dumb questions I want to ask" thread zSolars 2 points ago in medicalschool

    Anyone have any thoughts on living further away from campus (like 30+ min)? My soon to be wife has never been a city person and truthfully our options in the suburban areas are much more what we are looking for. I just worry I’ll hate myself later if I’m driving 30+ min each way as an M3.

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    That’s good to hear! Thanks for all the help!

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    Yeah, I have a short list so far. I’ll look into that as well! Knowing to look around Woodburn helps. I’ve heard mixed things about the area elsewhere and wasn’t willing to risk it.

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    Thanks for all that! Oakley is probably my top pick right now from my research, but I’ll look into pleasant ridge since I haven’t heard of that until now

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    Thanks for the idea! That was one I was looking into as an option.

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    Not sure how well an older place would go over, but I’ll look into Gerdsen places. Thanks!

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    Cool! I’ll check it out. Any particular apartments or places you recommend?

    [–] Moving to Cincinnati - need recommendations zSolars 1 points ago in cincinnati

    I’m okay with a somewhat short commute. Probably under $1500 per month. One car. Ideally low crime. Wife is from the country so not big on city life to begin with.
