A New Day

"Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."

I have a totally new outlook today. I just know that everything is going to be all right and that my life can turn out the way I want it to because I believe in myself and my family, coworkers, professors, and community believe in me, too. In fact, the English Department believes in me so much that in addition to me becoming a departmental destinction candidate, I just earned a new scholarship for my achievement in the English department!! I am so happy and I am definitely out of the funk I've been in the past couple of days. I took my Physics final, so I'm completely through with all my med school pre-reqs and now I can just focus on my med school apps and making myself in to an awesome candidate. I know I can do it, and I know I will make it. I will be a doctor.

Last time we talked you mentioned that DOs can't practice around the world or with charities such as "Doctors without Borders," but they can.

I had a chance to look it up and even the DWB website states it.

Just passing along some information. Good luck on finals!

Yeah, I looked up on the DWB site that same day we talked and it said they could too. I know 1 TCOM grad and two 4th years there and they told me that had wanted to practice medicine in Iran, but that the government did not recognize the DO degree. I guess it just depends on the place. Question: Why don't you post under "other" and just write in your name? That way you won't have to write it at the bottom and it will save you some time each time you log in. Thanks and good luck on your finals, too.
