  11. Is this a realistic course load?
    Thats a course load. Some of those "busy" classes can be done over the summer. A&P has a lot of information you need to remember as it follows you forever and ever. If you are single and have a lot...

  18. Which specialty would you like to end up in?
    PICU. Very competitive, I know, but I have no intention of working in a clinic. Working bedside and dealing with crabby parents is where I feel I can best be of use :)

  19. Summer classes?!
    For me 101 was much harder than 102 and even though I hold high A's in both A&P classes, I am firmly convinced that I would NOT have done as well in an accelerated class like summer can be. If you do...
