Public Service Announcement - Take A Break From Stressing Out and Watch This Adorable Video!!

Thursday, January 23, 2014

This is for all of you stressed-out premeds who haven't heard back from schools yet, who just got ANOTHER rejection or who are waiting to find out if you've been accepted after a recent interview. This post is also for all of the M2s in schools across the nation who are gearing up to take the Step 1 exam (I know some schools take it early and some have a few months to go but anxiety knows no boundaries).

Here is a video of what my friend and I like to call "raccooning." It's fairly obvious after you watch it what we mean by this term - it's when you are snuggling someone so intensely and with such affection and they are just sitting there with a look on their face sort of like "I'm too tired and comfortable to make you stop but you're being ridiculous and I am not going to respond to your gregarious outburst of savage snuggling."

Know what I mean? I'm sure some of you have been there and if not, well, I bet you'll still enjoy this super cute video. After viewing, I highly recommend going and finding a friend and re-enacting the scenario because you will both end up feeling much better, I promise!

Hi Chantal,

I stumbled across your blog and was wondering if I could e-mail you some questions about the Harvard informal post-bacc program. I am a senior finishing my last year of undergrad at a liberal arts college in MA. I have finally decided to pursue a post-bacc program while working in clinical research for a few years before applying to medical school. Unfortunately, I missed out on the opportunity to pursue the pre-med requisite courses during my undergrad tenure, but I'd like to hear about your experience at Harvard.
